I have been noticing this weird gradient issue when I export from REDrushes (or any other debayering program) to a prores 422 file (but it happens with all the other files as well except if I choose to use no codec when exporting).
The two examples are below:
This is the original (a big file as its not encoded in any way):
And this is the one transcoded into a Prores 422 file:
Notice how the color seems to flow into each other in the original, but jumps in the prores. It looks like the prores is only exporting a limited amount of colors...
Also on a sidenote, the color is faded and off (gamma?) in all exports except the none codec...
What is going on? I would appreciate any help!
