Datalevels videolevels AE fails to display superwhites Pre does just fine
on Sep 28, 2016 at 8:08:51 am

Hi there,

I have a Pre project where i had some scenes go through Ae in orde to place some damage on a wall behind the talent. the scene was shot in a church and the church had to look damaged. When i add the footage to AE the superwhites in a window go bonkers and so far i havent been able to fix it. The footage is graded in Resolve and the Cineon conversion has made the amount of contrast more extreme so thats why a lot of whites go very high on the IRE scale.

BUT every program on my PC, be it Premiere, Windows media player etc displays everything just fine. its AE ruining the clips when i try to add wall damage. Thats why im looking fo a fix in the AE project.

What tricks are there to have AE display all the Data and not hide behind videolevels (or whatever display levels it's set to)


regards,

Bram

Can you upload a clip of the footage you're using?

as you can see AE messes with the window area 'cause that area is superwhite. All other programs, even my 2cent windows moviemaker display it just fine.

I I could export the vids with videolevels but that will mess with the contrast, look and probably the gamma setting (2.2 / 2.4) I'd rather fix AE because thats whats causing the troubles right now.

ooo, before i forget. The clips that AE messes up are AVID DNxHD files that i exported from resolve.

Could you try using EXR sequences?

I don't think DNxHD is capable of accommodating superwhites. Like Tero, I think image sequences are what you. need.

fixed it. EXR files would have been rather cumbersome as i also needed to rotoscope/rotobezier things in order to get walldamage images on the walls. .AVI YUV 10bit exports from resolve worked though. thing look as they should now.

I meant that if you could upload a clip of your source footage so me or someone else could see how it behaves in After Effects.
