FCP 7 Canvas Quality Better than Source & Renders?

Hi all,

I'm editing a short trailer with clips captured at Apple ProRes 422. My sequence settings are also for ProRes422.

One thing I've noticed is that for whatever reason, the quality and color saturation output by both the Viewer and Canvas Windows in FCP7 is actually *better* than the source or my output renders. (At least, they don't appear to have as much color saturation when playing the captured source clips from Quicktime Player).

For awhile I thought my renders (I do "Send To... Compressor") were just dropping color quality. I'm trying to figure out why the Canvas is outputting it at even better color saturation than my existing source captured clips and rendered clips. Has anyone else noticed this?

Seems like I'll have to just manually bump up the saturation for a nested sequence for now?
