I am having a very strange problem.
I am working on a project in FCP and Color, all canon footage converted to pro res 422. Everything is running smooth untill I want to export to quicktime. When reviewing the quicktime on my desktop with quicktime player 7.XXX I immediately notice a big change in the contrast and saturation. To show you more clearily what I mean I included an image grab from my screen with both the fcp canvas window and a exported still visible.
Do you know what could cause this big difference? One of the things I tested was importing the quicktime movie I exported back into FCP. Result: NO CHANGE in saturation and contrast at all! But my clients will be watching this on Vimeo etc and not next to me in the edit room so I still have a problem since the export doesn’t look the same in quicktime player.
