As per topic, my AE video output too bright, have tried different codecs.

My background is black but the output is obviously too bright.

My monitor brightness has been set to 0.

Is there other configurations? I done a google search, seems like a common problem.

Top is AE, Bottom is output from AE from the same monitor settings.

Thanks for the screenshots, but that still isn't much to go on.

What the heck are we looking at? Is this footage? If yes, what do you do with this footage?

Is this something you made all in AE? If you did, HOW did you make it in AE? Just 'cause something goes white doesn't automatically mean it's too bright for your monitor, it means it doesn't suit your personal tastes. If you're rendering something to be played on DVD or for broadcast, that's a different story....

Without information, it's kinda tough to make a diagnosis.

I can't give much of the config now as i not at that desk.

what can be tell from the screenshot is that from the "Black" background, the 1 on the top is in AE workplace and it is ok, but the 1 below is in avi format and from the same "Black" background, it is much more brighter.

How can i make sure that what i see in AE workplace is what i get in output after clicking "make movie". Maybe can advise what settings to look out for that can cause such issues.
