  • Dynamic Link PP – AE affects the color and gamma

    But no matter what my monitor is calibrated to, I see a difference stacking two of the same clip on top of each other in premiere. Only for comparishon I send the upper clip to AE via dynamic link, doing nothing to it in AE. Now back in Pr, disabeling and enabeling the upper track which is the AE comp, there’s a slight gamma and temperature shift between the two clips.
    Above those two tracks on v3 I have an adjustment layer with a lut for correct display, but that shouldn’t matter to this issue.

    Thanks //Erik

    set your graphics card video control panel output to 0-255 from 16-235. did it look ok in AE?
    if its a bug somewhere, don’t worry, just send a HALD image via dynamic link and create a ‘repair’ lut with free IWLtap lut creator.

    Looking at my attached link in my original post, the scopes indicates that something is done to the footage via dynamic link.
    Anyone, try it for yourself and tell me if you don’t have the same issue. I’ve tried this on other systems than my own and with different sources of footage.

    Sorry to dig up bad memories, but did you find a solution to this problem? I’m currently facing the same exact thing as you were.

    Hello Erik, Chris, Sean.

    I am having the same problem.

    I am working with footage shot in Rec.709. I am making a dynamic link from Premiere to AfterEffects.

    In Premiere: Sequence / Sequence Settings / Working Color Space: Rec.709

    In After Effects: Project settings / Color / Working Space: Rec.709 Gamma 2.4

    The footage changes color slightly; loses a bit of contrast and gets slightly warmer.

    Did any of you find a fix to this issue?

    Thank you so much

    Best ,
