Quite new to Premiere Pro. Did a few searches with no hits.
I created some titles and then exported the video varying the settings. The "match sequence settings" version looks fine but as soon as I use H.264 compression, the title track fades significantly.
I tried adjusting bitrate and using different compression methods but the results are about the same. Only the "uncompressed" one looks right.
I attempted the same thing. I took screen captures from the Program Monitor, an export using Sequence Settings and an export played in Windows Media Player that used the YouTube 1080p default settings.
I just don't see the same issue. I look at Pluto's left knee to compare semi transparent color over his costume. Seems the same to me. Perhaps if you told us your H.264 settings.
In MM screendump its not just the title it the whole H264 picture that is different from the PM. Its overall lighter
In Stevens screendump i see the same but not that obvious. Could be the H.264 setting.
What player is being used to display the H.264 Export?
The reason that I ask is that QT Player has a gamma issue, but if it is not being used, then the issue will likely lie elsewhere.
Hmmm, that may not be the most accurate representation of the video signal here. Try bringing the export back into PP and using it's Export Frame feature instead. Create PNG files.
Also, how does the export look on a properly calibrated TV (not a computer monitor)?
You know what? I think it WAS the codec used. I tried another H.264 codec (HDV 720p 29.97fps) and it looks better (I didn't realize the list scrolled down, I really am in my first week of using this product).
It was the Apple iPhone & Android ones that caused this fading issue.
Sorry if I wasted anyone's time and I appreciate all the help. If anything, we know that those Apple / Android compression codecs aren't that great for things like this
My primary display media will be computers
That's not so much relevant, though. While editing, you want to see the signal accurately. That requires a properly calibrated external TV.
Having said that, I'd not expect transparency to be affected like this. So back to my other questions...
Is CUDA acceleration on? Is Max Render Quality checked during export?
