Colours keeps changing from .AI to .AE to render.

Hi all,

Currently keep having an issue where the .ai colours don't match the colours within After Effects.

We've tried changing to sRGB, rendering to Vimeo HD, rendering to .mov without compression...
but none of these solutions seemed to result in the same bright color as the original file.



What's the ideal workflow preserve the original .ai colours?

Much appreciated!

Is the illustrator document in RGB? I say it is. If converted from CMYK, did you compare the two side by side in Illustrator?

And what specific codecs did you use when you rendered from AE?

Also: don't mess with color management. Stick with SRGB.

Definitely check if your AI project is in CMYK, and if so, convert it to RGB!
