Need some help:

Shooting sports pics green screen.
Shirts are Florida Marlin, light cyan. Shot against green screen. Screen and subject lit independently and have 12.5 feet of distance between.

PK is changing their shirt color on import to a light purple. this is not the first time I have noticed PK having trouble picking the correct value to put out.

I need help. I can not photoshop all the images back to cyan. Why is PK changing the colors?

Any help greatly appreciated. Will post pictures if someone will tell me how.

Thanks!
Lee

Color shifts are almost always introduced by the spill suppression when they happen, and the reason there is more than one mode of spill suppression is so you can select the one that works best with the colors of your photo. If your key is perfect, you could theoretically even turn the spill suppression off, but in nearly all casts at least a bit of spill suppression is a good thing.

But, change the mode, adjust the amount of spill, and see what you come up with.
