Final Cut Express to Final Cut Pro problem

    This past year I have been working on an important project and just completed it this December. During this time I edited the short film together using Final Cut Express
    on my 24 inch iMac. This past week I have upgraded to the new 27 inch i7 iMac and installed Final Cut Studio on there.

    When I opened the FCE project into FCP everything appeared to be working right but then I noticed that the color was way off. This really bothers me since I put a lot of time
    into coloring the project. The main reason I know the color is off is because I also have a Apple 24 inch cinema display that I used with my old 24 inch
    iMac when editing the project. It seems that since the main picture is on the 24 inch external monitor that was previously used then I should have the same color and tone from before.

    As of right now when I have the project opened in Final Cut Pro the color is a lot brighter and washed out. I have checked my filters and made sure everything like color correction was
    turned on and they were. My main question is there a setting or something that I can adjust to make my old FCE project work right and give me the right playback in FCP? I guess I could
    always go back to my old iMac for older projects but I would like to be able to use Final Cut Pro instead with both new and old projects.

    Any advice on how to fix this or adjust any setting would really help. Thanks a lot.

    Im aware of the gamma issue but I don't think thats the problem. Both iMacs new and old are running the latest version of Snow Leopard. Even when I was editing the project the past 6 months I had Snow Leopard.
