AE preview and render look different
on Aug 5, 2018 at 9:46:16 am


Having trouble exporting accurate color and picture quality (preview on left, render on right).

I've exported in AVI and QuickTime formats. I'll be honest I don't know what each format in the drop down menu means, so I'm obviously missing something.

Thank you in advance for any advice you can give me!

Hi Danielle,

This is a common issue, it is due to some combination of: inconsistent color profiles being used, uncalibrated monitors, Not using color management, and even color profiles with incorrect gamma curves.

Here's an article I wrote that covers this subject. And if you could tell us what all of your color and project settings are, we could better help.
