Adobe After Effects: ProRes 4444 colors and gamma shift when working with After Effects and Final Cut Pro

Chapter: Workflow

Topic: Inter-application Workflow

If you use Apple’s new ProRes4444 codec with After Effects and Final Cut Pro, you may notice a gamma shift (i.e., colors will seem to have too much or too little contrast) when you bring the movies rendered and exported from After Effects back into Final Cut Pro. To avoid this gamma shift, you’ll need to edit your After Effects CS4 QuickTime gamma rules XML file. This will add the appropriate gamma tag to your QuickTime files on output.
