Hey guys,
for a few years we have been doing at work a series for work using virtual sets that have been comp with live action in After Effects.
We decided to buy a new Tricaster unit and convert all our assets into a formats that the Tricaster can read.

So far so good, but when we converter the virtual sets they came out too dark, as in 30% too dark.

I am attaching the Virtual sets, after converting them in Photoshop. they look fine in Photoshop but in the Virtual set editor they look WAY too dark.
Any suggestions?

is it a colour space issue, if lightwave was set to linear or rec then they would be read darker in something that is set to srgb, photoshop can correct the colour space so usually works fine, however I find when using the psd export buffer everything is darker,

Thanks for the quick reply.
Any advice on how to fix this in Photoshop?
I am including some screenshots of the image current settings in the program.

Just convert your colour mode from 32 bit to 16 bit
