Hi all, first time posting. Recording my screen with camtasia and trying to edit in After Effects. Every time I export from After Effects to anything other than uncompressed .avi my whites turn gray. They look fine in the preview window. Don't remember ever having this problem with video before. Does this have something to do with the camerec codec used for initial capture? Any help would be much appreciated.

You need to know that AE is probably the WORST application to use for video editing. Why don't you use a dedicated video editor like Avid, Premiere, FCP, Vegas or some other NLE?

Thanks Dave,

Good call, Premiere works without issue. Sometimes use AE for super short video project as it seems to do well with accepting and exporting a variety of media files. Not so much this time around. Thanks for your help!

Not knowing the codec used in the screen capture software, I can only guess that it was the culprit.

Hi, I'm having a similar problem in Microsoft Expression Encoder. All encoded WMV's come out with a gray background (when my original is white). Does anyone know a fix for this? I don't have access to Premiere.
