Sony A7r4 live view white balance

I've been taking some sunset images recently and noticed that the image captured has a different white balance than the live view?  So I have my camera on a tripod, dial in settings, white balance, etc so it looks good.  Then when I review the image, it looks different.  Either a different white balance, saturation, or something.  My settings that I think affect this are as follows.

DRO is off

Create Style is set to standard

Picture profile is off

Can you think of anything else I should try to align them a little more?

You should have Live View Display Effect on.

does it have different wb values for real, do they differ from what you have set ?

or is this just a feeling ?

Manual white balance?

Re: Sony A7r4 live view white balance

I attached a couple pictures what I'm talking about.  First picture is the image review, and the second picture is live view.

Notes:

  • Live view Display effect is On
  • White balance is set to Cloudy (but happens in other white balance settings and AWB as well).  
  • Creative style set to standard
  • Picture effect is Off
  • Picture Profile is Off

Any input would be great.  You can see the sky and grass are different colors.

Re: Sony A7r4 live view white balance

you shoot jpeg or raw ?

i personally dont care about any color in camera, i also do not rely on any brightness or appearance in LCD or EVF.

i only care for histogram and zebras, make sure to not clip what is important to me. take the shot and care for color in the LR or CO1.

i dont know about what happens there, but if i could guess, i would say the live view does not show you the whole information of the sensor, but the preview afterwards will have all information.
