Lower Third Changes Hue
on Dec 6, 2013 at 11:00:20 pm

I've got a video with a series of talking heads, and each has a lower third graphic introducing them. Each graphic is a solid gray matte, slightly transparent, cropped top and bottom and keyframe cropped to slide on and off the screen. Two layers of simple text fade in and out on top of the matte. The speakers are against a white backdrop, and every time the lower third appears the hue (on the backdrop) shifts from off-white to a slight blue. I do not see this in the timeline, only after rendering an H.264 1280x720 .mov. Any ideas what might be going on?

Two things come to mind:

You don't mention the codec of the footagte in the timeline, but if it's H.264, it can cause problems.

If you're exporting straight from the timeline to H.264, you might want to consider exporting to ProRes 422, and using it in Compressor to mAke the H.264.

Tried playing with the opacity settings and blend modes?

Thanks guys. It seems like Sending through Compressor rather than Quicktime Conversion did the trick.
