    Unfortunately, there is nothing consistent. Media players will manage the color in different ways and that’s what you are struggling with. If you export an MP4 and play it back through a media player like Switch, you will see an image that’s largely reliable. It won’t necessarily look like the image looks in the Premiere Pro viewer nor on YouTube, Vimeo, TikTok, Facebook, Instagram, etc. That’s unfortunately just the way it is. When editors only dealt with broadcast TV, there was generally a common standard that everyone tried to achieve. Online content is a whole different ballgame.

    Thanks again for all your input, feedback and time Oliver. Much appreciated.

    I’ll just use “what I get” out of Premier.

    Have a nice day : )
