Color levels in Adobe Encore
on Jan 24, 2010 at 12:41:51 pm

Hi!

What color-levels does Encore expect the video files to be:
0-255 or 16-235?

The codecs I'll mainly use is Avid DNxHD.

I know that Encore expect Quicktime DV PAL-files to be 0-255 (in the MPEG2-compression Encore squeeze to 16-235).

16-235 is the norm for NTSC discs.

Yes, it is 16-235 in both PAL and NTSC. BUT, that is the final product.

My question is, which levels is expected for the untranscoded source files (HD and SD)? This is NOT always 16-235... Like I previously stated, for example Quicktime DV PAL should be 0-255 to become properly encoded MPEG2 in Encore...

IRE should always start at 16 not 0- that's for DV only and even then not really necessary with a proper monitor calibration.
