Encoding with ProRes leaves hazy screen effect
on Jan 14, 2016 at 6:23:56 am

I am editing an animation demo for a potential full feature fan movie.

Rendering individual frames into Quicktime animation codec gives the high quality look I am after.

However, converting the huge .mov-file into the industry standard ProRes-codec, I am faced with a hazy screen effect. I seem to be able to keep crisp detail, but I obviously do not want the hazy effect (lower picture).

I am no engineer and just want to go about rendering my 3D movie in safe and tested method.

Having asked around the above method was the suggested best workflow, but it isn't quite working is it?

It looks like a Gamma issue. Here are some good posts to read about the issue:

Hi Ted!

Thanks a lot (!) for leading me on the right path. At first glance there seems to be a lot of interesting and relevant information in your links.

I will read it thoroughly asap.

My original 3D renders are 1080p and rich in detail. It would be a pity losing it to some unnecessary conflict following the conversion process.

Are you watching these in Quicktime player? If you bring the animation and prores files into AE and compare them is there a difference?
