How do you make a Quicktime MPG4/H264 with no gamma shift?

If I render straight from AE, or load footage into QuicktimePro and export directly from there, it always leaves the footage milky..

Does Adobe Media Encoder have this problem?

[Matthew Beall] "How do you make a Quicktime MPG4/H264 with no gamma shift?"

First thing: you don't make do that kind of compression in AE. Yes, it's there, but it's just for quick 'n dirty stuff. Ifg you're trying to make a Work For The Ages, make a high-qulity file in AE, then use Adobe media encoder or even QT Pro to do the compression. They're much better.

As to the gamma shift problem, it's tough to know what to tell you: ProRes has a problem, DVCPro HD has a problem... but there are two different remedies. You might try futzing with QT Pro's settings. There's a gamma adjustment you can make in there.

Dave's right. Also a quick typing of gamma or gamma shift into the search box on the forum turns up a few interesting threads including this one. Hopefully it helps.
