    Hi All,

    I took this video on a Nexus 6p. On the phone and on my MBP15 using Quicktime it plays back fine. But when imported into iMovie or FCPX and played back in the viewer it's colored red. Notice how the clip in the browser looks fine but when viewed or played in the viewer it is red.

    Anybody got an idea what's going on?

    If it helps, my MBP is the new 2016 with TB running the latest Sierra (10.12.2) and QT/iMove/FCPX builds.

    Attached are screenshots from QT and iMove, but FCPX also looks the same.

    After playing with it more, I can say that when I skim over the video it plays red in the browser. But when I simply press play (not skimming) it looks fine. This is very weird. So basically as I move the pointer forward or backward skimming the video or leave the pointer on a particular spot the video in the browser is red. But when I hit play or press the space bar to play it looks fine. Soon as I stop it goes back to red again. This is crazy weird.
