Washed out outputs issue
on Jun 17, 2011 at 9:03:09 am

Hi all, I've been attempting to do cutouts of rotating bottles for a project, and it seems that my outputs lose their gamma detail every time. They're being outputted as animations with an alpha channel, once there, they are taken into photoshop, a certain number of frames are selected (the client only needs 60 frames), and then the frames are outputted as PNGs at their request. Now I did all this, and they got back to me saying that the images were washed out. Now I would assume that they are using the same colour profiles as me(checking on that now), so I have no idea what's gone wrong.

Any help would be hugely appreciated.

Regards

Simon

You could output your selected range of 60 frames directly to a PNG sequence from AE -- no Photoshop required.

Are you using color management [link] in AE as well as PS? Have you read Adobe's color management workflow white paper [link]?
