I am importing a jpg sequence into flash that has been exported from After Effects CS6. No matter what I try, the color will shift when the image imports into flash. The sequence originally started out as a vector graphic in Illustrator (color profile set to sRGB IEC61966-2.1) and then imported into After Effects for an animation that I couldn't quite achive in Flash. The color profile in After Effects is also sRGB IEC61966-2.1 with the "Match Legacy" checkbox checked. I export it out of After Effects as a JPG Sequence and then import into Flash. No matter what I try, the bitmap images' color will shift (become dull) when I import. Even when I open the images in Windows Photo Gallery, they look fine - it's only when I import into Flash. I've also tried PNG and .PSD Sequence with the same result. I've searched around, but still haven't found a solution. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks for the help. I've exported them out as 24bit and still run into the same problem. I've pretty much tried everything. What's weird is when I select the eyedropper tool in Flash and sample a color it will give me the correct RGB values that I have in Illustrator and After Effects.
I am in the midst of trying to figure out the opposite : Flash to After Effects. I am betting that this is an issue of 'color profile' attached to the images and the gamma settings in that profile. RGBA is only part of the story - color profile is all the rest of it. Eye Dropper doesn't tell you the color profile attached to the image.
If you have Fireworks installed, it should help to let it prepare the last version before you import to Flash.
So the workflow maybe: Illustrator/PS >png>import in fireworks>export to jpg for flash
Fireworks translates the color space (if its not a common one) into flashs "reduced" colorspace vocbulary
