No, I have not solved it, except to add a level filter to nested clip in premiere before exporting. I think it is h264 encoding...whether it's an MP4 extension or an .mov extension same result...also, same result in squeeze...but in squeeze i can add a filter directly to offset it a bit. Not a perfect solution but it works. The stuff compressed by either program is destined for web only use, so quality is questionable at best. I would love to hear some more reactions and thoughts on this, likely someone will say I am crazy for doing it that way, but it's the only solution I can devise...and for the web it's more than fine. Get the job done and move on, if it looks right, it is right. The other issue I have is, as stated above, monitors...the same video on one monitor to the next will look different. My Apple monitor tends to have deep blacks, while my Acer is more washed out, me my dell is different yet. Apparently NTSC is still with us, if only as an amusing acronym.
