Title: Color shifts in AME
Post by: Noedelhap on February 26, 2018, 10:36
I'm running into trouble when exporting an MP4 (H.264) video in AME.

Inside AE my project color profile is set to sRGB. But when I export it using AME, the colors end up much more saturated, so apparently AME doesn't take the color profile into consideration.

I did find a workaround on the Adobe forums: using an adjustment layer with a Color Profile Converter set to sRGB on top of my main comp, but it doesn't seem to have any effect on my final video. What could be wrong?

Ah, we had a huge discussion about this in the BlackBox Facebook group a few weeks ago.

The origin the problem usually is that Premiere and AME store their LUT's in different folders and pick a LUT only by the list number.

So if LUT#4(PP) and LUT#4(AME) are different LUT's then you get different renders.

- Then there is also the matter of : "full swing vs studio swing" but I don't know if that problem applies here: https://wolfcrow.com/blog/what-is-full-swing-studio-swing-and-how-to-work-with-video-levels-in-adobe-premiere-pro-part-one/

So check first if the LUT problem applies to AE with AME renders too.

Also: AME renders an AE project with the project version that you saved last.
So if you last saved an AE project as 8bpc then AME will render it in 8bpc only instead of 16bpc or 32bpc.
