Losing color/contrast after rendering lossless
on Jan 4, 2014 at 7:21:02 am

After rendering a clip by using the lossless and best settings, the final clip looks weird. I don't know how to describe it, but it seems to have a slightly transparent white layer on top of the video. It looks like the saturation and contrast had lost a lot.
If I rendered the clips in lossless settings, why do I still loose color?

I had read a bunch of explanations on the internet, but people keep using a lot of terms I don't understand. I am very new to After Effects, so can someone please explain it very throughly and simply to me of what is happening to me?
Thank you very much!

What format/codec did you render the clip as and what are you using to view it?

I am doing a stop motion video. I first gather the pictures together and make them as a footage by using Windows Live MovieMaker. The export window said H.264 1920 x 1080. It has a .mp4 at the end.
Then I imported the footage into After Effects to add effects. I then rendered it by the best and lossless settings. It has a .mov at the end.
I used the Quicktime player on my Mac to view it.
I am very new to movie making, so I don't know much. Wish this is the information you need to help me to solve my problem.

[Brian Cheng] "Quicktime player"

You can't trust Quicktime Player in anything that is color critical.
