BUG: AE cc2020 - Wrong levels with ProRes files if project is set to 32 bits/channel
ProRes and ProRes(HQ) files are too dark in AE if the project Color Depth is set to '32 bits per channel (float)'. ProRes 4444 and h264 files are read fine. All works fine with a color depth of either 8 or 16 bit. All color depths work fine in cc2019.
AE Version: 17.0.2
OSX Version: 10.14.6
Hello again John
I've just tested this again with the new 17.0.3 update and all is now fine.
Thanks a lot
Thanks for the quick response. Here are the project and source files, which were all exported out of Premiere cc2019. The project is currently set to a color depth of 32 bits/channel and what you'll see is that the ProRes and PreRes(HQ) files are darker than the the other two files. Change the project color depth to 8 or 16 bit and they all look alike. This is all within After Effects, although the images retain the problem when exported.
The renderer is set to Metal with no color management enabled.
Thank you for reporting this issue. Do you have a clip of the affected media that you could share? It would help us confirm the issue and also get a sense of any embedded metadata which may be affecting the displayed colors.
- Do you have color management enabled in your project?
- Are you using the Metal render or Software Only in Project Settings > Video Rendering and Effects?
Please post a link to your files here, or if you prefer not to post publicly you can send it to email@example.com.
If you send to that address:
A) Do not send .zip files, they will be blocked; renaming to .thisisazipfile is OK.
B) Post a comment here when you have sent the email. We'll need to manually check that inbox.
Thanks for any further information you can offer Andy.
