Losing colors after rendering
on Dec 7, 2014 at 2:05:33 pm

Hello,

My problem is that I want to render an image sequence movie in vegas pro 9, but after rendering the true colors are lost (see image).



(Don't mind the quality in the second image, since I took a photo of a screen, somehow it was not possible to make a screenshot of VLC player.)
Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I have created the image in CorelDraw and then exported it to .PNG.

Fomats I tried to render to:
MainConcept AVC/AAC (*.mp4)
Sony AVC (*mp4;*m2ts;*.avc)

Any help would be very appreciated.

It's impossible to see what's going on because your second screenshot is so bad.

I would not expect images made with an image editor like CorelDraw to look the same when converted to video because video has a different color and luminance profile then images do. They will not look the same unless you restrict your image to video levels. Quite often video editors must prepare their images for video and Photoshop even has an automated filter for doing this. Images can contain RGB values from 0 to 255 while video only contains RGB values of 16 to 235.

I also don't understand the part about MainConcept AVC/AAC (*.mp4) & Sony AVC (*mp4;*m2ts;*.avc). I thought you were rendering an Image Sequence? Unless you are saying that the image looked different when creating a video which makes sense because of the different color profiles that video uses.

Thank you for your response, and yes, the screenshot is kinda messed up. However, the problem was solved, because I found out that actually in project properties 8bit video was selected instead of 32bit, hence reducing the amount of colour tones. :)

Ah, OK. That's a valid reason for using 32-bit color mode. Glad you figured it out.
