    Hello.
    So just to give some context, I’ve been working on a clip where I replaced a copyrighted poster behind someone. The footage I recieved is shot on an older camera (don’t know which), and it’s encoded in YUV, bt. 601 color space.

    Now my issue is that the colourist needs my export to match that color format in order for his grading to work properly, but I can’t seem to export in anything else than BT. 709.

    I’ve tried and failed with changing the working space and adding the color profile converter effect, and some other stuff. After trying this in every combination I could think of, I realized that a different format managed to change it into the YUV color profile, which was DNxHD, but it didn’t do much else.

    The footage is transcoded from Avid, in the MXF format (DNxHD). Color space YUV. BT 601.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!
