Inexplicable Colour Change from AE Quicktime Render to AE Import...

Hi All,

Using AE CS6 and I'm completely stumped by this one...

I exported a Trapcode Particular sequence to a Quicktime .mov with an alpha channel so I could re-import it into the main comp to speed things up.

This is the exported clip as it appears in Quicktime:



However, when I re-import it into AE it looks like this:



What have I done wrong...?

Cheers!

What media container & codec did you use to render out the particles? What's your bit depth setting for this project?

You didn't happen to use DNxHD in a 32bpc project did you? Alas such a pairing was never meant to be. There's a long standing problem with the way DNxHD behaves in greater than 8bpc projects.

Even if you're not using DNxHD, try using a different codec. If you need an alpha I'd recommend rendering to an image sequence unless that's out of the question.
