    Problem with tiff sequence import - colour change...

    Hi All

     

    I am having a problem importing a tiff image sequence into MC. The sequence is some yellow song lyrics which animate across the screen.

     

    Problem is when the tiffs are placed on a video track (above the main picture) in MC, the yellow words appear as cyan! (The complimentary of yellow!??).

     

    The tiffs look fine when opened in Photoshop and other apps we've tried. Am I doing something wrong when importing the tiffs into MC?

     

    I would really appreciate any help on ths.

     

    Thanks

    Most likely the TIFF files are in CYMK color space instead of RGB. (You can verify that in Photoshop.)

    They'll need to be converted prior to import.

    Hi Kevin

    Thanks for replying.

    I checked in Photoshop and the .tiff files are RGB 16bit.

    If the files had been CYMK you'd expect some colour shift , but in our case the colour is changing from yellow to bright cyan. Weird!

    We've got around the problem for now by exporting the animation as .png files and these import into MC just fine.

    But I'm going tp try some other tests when I get time.

    Anybody else seen this odd thing?

    and John, are they flat tiffs or do they have an alpha?
