    My colorist graded a shot and sent it to me for some basic compositing. (We needed to grade it prior to VFX due to the nature of the shot.)

    He sent me one with Rec. 709 color space and another with P3 for the same shot (one for online streaming and the other for theater projection). The Rec. 709 has come out fine but the P3 footage doesn’t look right from the getgo on preview and the export isn’t accurate as well.

    I don’t necessarily need the preview on the monitor to reflect the true colors of the footage, but the export having a significantly different color than the original is a problem. I’ve been exporting in ProRes4444.

    Can someone explain to me why this is happening as well as a fix? I just need the export to reflect the color of the source footage. Thanks a bunch in advance.
