Hi, Please help

I have 2 video editors - 1 using Camtasia v9 on Windows laptop (32-bit) and 1 using Camtasia latest version 2019 on MAC (64-bit).

And their MAC mp4 output for the same video series is now different washed-out colors.

BIG Problem
We have a course recording showing slides - the output rendered from Windows maintained the right color of font and logo color

Problem 1) The MAC output of video in mp4 has the font color washed out
Problem 2) The raw file when opened on MAC Camtasia is also showing washed-out color

What we tried is
1) Trying to adjust the saturation level using 'color adjustment' > No luck
2) Read most forum blogs and not sure what to do next

1) RAW file - the colors of logo and screen font - focus on the GOLDEN YELLOW is what we want

2) Camtasia windows output- color is retained in mp4

3) Mac Camtasia output - color is washed out - golden in logo on the right and font color of slide is light yellow

Camtasia for Windows has both HDTV and NTSC color profiles for rendering.

I know absolutely nothing about the Mac platform.
It may be Camtasia 9 is using a different profile than the Mac is?

Have you tried playing the Mac render in another browser or media player? Sometimes the problem only exists in the media player.

You could try disabling your graphics card as well.
