Recommendations for Intermediate File Format/Codec for Adobe (PC)

Hi Folks,
Since Apple killed Quicktime support on PC and Quicktime (.mov) H.264 is no longer an export option in Adobe CC (for PC), what are you all using as a decent intermediate Windows-friendly codec (specifically from After Effects)? Don't even THINK of posting "Just get a Mac". I will find you. ☺
I have been using .mov/MPEG-4 with just okay results. Most of my exports are simple, animated titles: Black text on white backgrounds. And using the aforementioned format/codec usually sort of washes/bleaches out the file. (The white seems to sort of creep into the font and any other raster graphics in the frame.) That said, it simply baffles me why Adobe doesn't allow H.264 (.mp4) directly from After Effects. I have title sequences that require a simple logo swap out. So creating individual comps or projects for each is overkill...
Thanks in advance!
