    Color Space at Export in 2021.3

    Hi everyone,

    While 2021.3 and so on does not have an export option as "same as source", I can't find the best option for exporting a .mov without a variation of color.

    I have tried different settings but everytime I tried the color changed.

    Even when the MC is really not changing the color (I imported the .mov via amalink into Avid and there is no difference), I need a .mov which can be use as reference where the color matches exactly as the one in MC and it can be play in QT or VLC.

    I am working with DNxHD LB in a project 1080p/23.976 19z0x1080 YcbCr 709 in an iMac with Catalina.

    Export settings:


    Any idea how I can have a .mov, same a source with no change in color that can be useful as reference?


    Thank you in advance

    Hi Dalida, 

    Have you tried a UME MOV export?

    You could also try a OP1a DNxHR LB export. 

    None of those should change the colour upon output if you've set the right settings. 

    Also, in what way does the colour change? Is it a colour change or a luma change, like Full to legal range conversion for example?
