Convert RGB Color Space to YUV
on Mar 18, 2012 at 11:41:40 am

Hi there,

I have a really annoying problem with MPEG-2 compression. Hopefully someone here can help me...

My project was delivered in an RGB colour space as I am told that it has more range. When I compress the file using the MPEG-2 codec for DVD duplication the image comes out extremely crushed on TVs and on computer screens. Dark blacks just completely lose all their detail and become just a mushy wash of black. I've read that MPEG-2 works in a YUV color space and doesn't treat RGB source files well.

Does anyone know how to accurately convert an RGB file to a YUV one? I hear there is a code for this but what program would I even need to do that?

Please help! Thanks!
