    Hello everyone,
    Thanks for taking time to read my post.
    I edited a movie on Final Cut Pro X, the real colors are quite flat, they shot it that way so we could easily add colors afterwards, although when I import them to Final Cut Pro they change color, it's like it adds colors to the clips itself. I checked the color options and it says it does not have any effects on clips.
    I also exported the film just to see if it's still like that, and yes it lost that flat color. How do I fix this?
    I attached some images for you to see the difference.
    Thanks in advance!!

    On the import screen you probably have the box checked that optimizes color balance on import.

    Your file was probably shot in one of those HDR color space like log-c. The good news is that Final Cut knows how to handle it and shows you the right colors. If you don't want that anyway, you can disable it, see
