Default Forced BT.709 on import - how to?

I have Fujifilm x-t3 and samsung nx1 files in h.265 codec.
when I import them in Edius - color space set as " BT.709[BT.601/Full] "

Project colorspace set as BT.709

When I create proxy, does not matter large or small, picture in proxy files becomes less contrast.
And it is real problem, when color grading in edius.

If I set BT.709 color space for each file manually, problem gone, proxy files has same contrast as source files.

The questions is:
1. Is it possible to import files forced as BT.709 color space?
2. Is it possible to change color space of generated proxy?

Are you trying to color grade based on the proxy?

you should NEVER colour grade in proxy mode. the files were not intended for that.

Proxy files are light weight low quality files designed as a way to edit files that you normally can't edit easily by enabling proxy mode for the edit and then disabling proxy mode for the finish. The proxies are small, low quality files that don't take up as much space as a proper high quality mezzanine file like HQX, ProRes, DNxHD, etc.

If you are doing this because you can't play back the camera original files but are going to use the camera original files for finishing (this includes the colour correct) then tou are using proxy correctly. However, if you are trying to do anything more than an edit with proxies, a better route would be to select all the camera originals in the bin, right click them and select the convert option to make HQX.

These files are mezzanine files and play and edit, and they are also high quality for colour correction. The trick with doing it this way is that you need to do the conversion before placing them on the timeline, and you need to select the new HQX version when you are placing them on the timeline.
