Question, I am working with a still image (tiff images) project in FCP, using the Tiff compression setting. I have exported using both ProRes 422HQ and a uncompressed version of the edit. I need the final output to be H-264 for the web (Apples iWeb to be exact). So I bring that file into compressor and compress it down to about 15 megs. The output looks great titles, effect so forth, except it has lost a lot of the color saturation. Could some one clue me in on why this is happening and what I can do to fix this issue?
try exporting it thru FCP and convert it in mpegstream. In mpegstream keep bit rate max possible and get the total file in desired size.
It just a workaround i am suggesting, generally its a bit rate which determines the pixel depth.
