Exporting To Movie... AVI becomes whitewashed. Help.
on Apr 27, 2008 at 7:48:49 am

Hi.
My problem is that after EXPORTING the Adobe Premier's time-line audio&vision to MOVIE, the resulting AVI has a washed out look when I play back on a media player that handles AVI's.

In premier, on source monitor and time-line monitor colours look healthy when editing.

Any Help? This white haze results on projects i've been developing for months, and also clips that take a day to edit.

I'm working from:
Adobe Premier Pro 2 >
WinXP+SP2 >
Intel dual core 2.46ghz >
4gigram >
GeForce 7300GT >
500gig HD for OS >
500gig HD for film data >
80gig for Virtual Memory. >
Mobo ConRoeXfire-eSATA2 by ASROCK.

Have you tried exporting to some other format to see if you get the same results? Video formats all have their pros and cons and maybe you are outside the color range for this format. Try Quicktime or WMV to compare.

Post back your results.

Hi Jeff,

I am testing on the colour bars for all the below.

When exporting timeline ........
Quicktime formats a .mov file which is unseen by VLC player.
Filmstrip also is unseen by VLC player
AnimatedGIF is seen by VLC player and still whited out.
GIF ..(haa!).. I deted the resulting 150 created files.
WindowsBitmap.....same as GIF
Targa ..... Surprised ops:
UncompreseMicrosoft unseen by VLC player.
Microsoft avi looks great.
Microsoft DV avi, looks very whited out. The blacks are a beautiful grey.

So microsoft avi looks to be working, but I'm interested in producing some professional high quality output and it doesn't satisfy me yet.
HAve you any words of wisdom regarding good quality output for DVD, or TV. I'd really like to understand why this colour desaturation is showing up

Jeff thanks for your time and help

Jeff,

Having found the MicrosoftAvi successful, I exported a project but still got a very bright, although the blacks stayed black. Colours still not right.
There is a gradient pixilation that moves about on the blacker portions.
I played two VLC of the old export and the latest MicrosoftAvi. Its better.
But honestly still crap! It looks so much better in the Premier Monitor.

The project mentioned above is made up of jpg digital photos, not footage. Maybe that figures into the problem?

Yours
Paul Cilia

One thing that the pros do is to preview their work on a TV monitor which is a real TV, not computer monitor. The broadcast standard does have limits which are easily exceeded by Premier, Photoshop, etc.

There are programs that let you monitor the waveform of your video to make sure you stay in range.

The gradient pixilation I think is a different problem but not sure how to fix it.

If you want really good advice and have the time, I would try the digitaljuice.com forum. They have very helpful and video-centric members who know a lot more than me. One or more will usually answer within a few hours.

I'll set up with TV out and definately log into
the site you suggested.

Thanks for the assistance.
