After Effects export is dark, help?
on Feb 1, 2010 at 10:08:00 pm

When I export my composition it always comes out darker than it should. Can anyone help me on this?

I use "Best Settings" and "Lossless"

Thanks

Never mind. I found the post (by Fred Beahm) pasted below:

Re: Renders from AE look Dark in FCP

I HAD THIS EXACT SAME PROBLEM !

I am doing some rotoscoping on a Feature Film that I cut. I masked out a fire hydrant, then when I dump out of AE into FCP the footage is 4 shades darker just like yours. I looked for hours for a solution until I just now stumbled upon your post. I read the project settings method and tried it, but it didn't work. I STUMBLED UPON THE SOLUTION ! ! This is what you do.

File > Project Settings >

then CHECK BLEND COLORS USING 1.0 GAMMA & MATCH LEGACY AFTER EFFECTS QUICKTIME GAMMA ADJUSTMENTS ! !

I am thinking maybe Quicktime 7.4.1 is the culprit on this one. It has never done this to me in the past.

After doing this, I rendered back out using *NONE* in format. Imported into FCP, WAM! Perfect matching colors ! ! This was a real pain in my butt and I couldn't figure it out until I read your post. Even though you didn't find the answer, you helped me discover it ! Thank you very very much. Please email me if you get this post!

I hope it works for you as it did for me.
Take care.
