    Pixel to Video Mapping Issue

    Running Avid 8.8.1.  Have a project that needs updating that was created with my 6.5 version prior to upgrading last year. It's a computer animation with a full white background.  Upon importing the updated clip, the whites are at 601, or a bit grey. Need them to be RGB.  I remember going through this before, but my import settings window no longer has this option has the 601 to RGB option.  I've searched online and there seems to be a new "Pixel to Video Mapping" option, but that is not showing either in the import window.  I also tried to play with the "Source Settings" options by right mouse clicking on the source clip.  But that got me no where.  I know there was some major changes in going from 6.5 to 8.8 (pulled my hair out to find how to link AMA clips the "new" way), so does anyone know if there was a change, and if not what might be wrong?  Have gone into other past projects and rebooted with same results.  Thanks.

    If you import than its an iport setting. The name has changed now.

    Under the import settings its under the image tab and called colour levels and you want the do not modify option.

    If you AMA link then you can use source settings to ensure its correct (and if it's not then change it) AMA is dynamic and import is locked at the point of import.

    However if you used import originally you don;t have much choice but to re-import (unless you AMA link and over cut)

    Is the footage ProRes 444?

    In which case there has been a change in the way MC interprets the levels.
