Fixing the way Premiere V22 overexposes certain footage
Multiple users report problem with HLG and SLOG footage that gets overexposed in Premiere Pro v22 after importing it into the project. In my case dealing with overexposed H.264 4:2:2 SLOG3.cine none of the fixes mentioned in groups and forums do the trick to fix the exposure. Interpreting footage to Rec. 709, making sure sequence is Rec. 709, ticking ''colour management'' in general preferences - nothing. The footage is also behaving normal on my windows laptop and issues occur on M1 Pro machine (same files, same versions of Premiere, same settings, I attach pictures of waveform from both computers). Please improve this bug in next update.

I am having the exact same issue. My "older" 2015 Mac can interpret the Sony Slog footage on Premiere but the newer M1 is adding a Rec 709 and overexposing the highlights. I have no work around. The color management is greyed out and the Sony settings under the master clip do not exist.
Would appreciate a fix on this issue ASAP. Thank you!

Premiere pro is not tonemapping HDR content when used in Rec. 709 color space. We are working on fixing this.
