    This topic must've been talked over a billion times and yet years and years and years after it still seems not to be fixed by Apple.

    Why o why does quicktime still make the clips brighter and shift it's original gamma?

    I can't believe that such a player/ format that supposed to be for professional use too is doing this and they still haven't fixed it and neither with Qt-X.

    Any ideas?

    view your footage on a REAL monitor coming off of a Kona Card. Case closed. Computers screw it up and display the video in the wrong colorspace.

    What about other people viewing it?

    Is there still a problem in Snow Leopard? Is your monitor set to 2.2?

    after grading clips on a calibrated broadcast display, my QT exports have always looked correct. I don't get a gamma shift when viewing on my dell 30" that was calibrated by a spyder2.
