Colour Fading (flash to AE to authored DVD)
on May 24, 2008 at 12:00:11 pm


I wonder if anyone could shed on what happened in my last animation project.
I selected beautiful colours in flash and in my AE project they were desaturated.
By the time they appeared on the TV screen, it also was very "flashy" - it's hard to explain - the colours were pale but it seemed as though they were far too bright.

Currently working on a new project with Flash 8 and After Effects CS3 and want to avoid the same problem or at least investigate it.

Process in last project:

Created animation in flash 8 on a PC (windows xp service pack 2)
Exported as png sequence
Imported PNG sequence to After effects (5 or 7 - i can't remember which version it was at the time)
Shocked by very dull appearance of PNGs in After effects
Experimentally adjusted luminance level/broadcast something or other to try and make it more saturated.
Exported as quicktime
Authored DVD in DVD studio pro

I suspect the following - but would be grateful for your opinion.

Settings in flash for exporting PNGs - e.g.
24 bit with alpha
filter: none

Do i need to temporarily change my screen settings when editing my project and is this advisable?
e.g. would i risk mess up the appearance of a large body of existing design work?

Is this a known issue when importing pngs to After effects?

Is this a graphics card issue?

Would upgrading to Flash CS3 help at all?

Many thanks..
