Color Mistiming


Color Mistiming is an adverse effect in which the expected or reasonable color levels appear inadvertently altered from the surrounding reference shots. Color Mistiming impacts the technical and content quality of an asset. A mistimed color mix can present a jarring difference between one shot and another. This difference can distract the customer and remove the suspension of disbelief. Typically, this issue is not creatively intended and any derivatives produced from this mezzanine will be of poor or unusable quality.

Severity Structure:



Needs Review

Color timing differs slightly from surrounding similar shots/angles without on-screen motivation.

Needs Fix

Color timing differs significantly from surrounding similar shots or angles without onscreen motivation. Creative intent is likely impacted and is unintentional. 


Check to make sure all segments were properly rendered and correctly implemented into the final conform. It may be necessary to review the DI Session and verify that the timing is consistent across multiple shots. If any LUTs were used, check to ensure they were applied to all shots.
