after export from Premiere Pro CS5 the material looks much brighter than it looks inside Premiere.
In Premiere: PAL; dv footage (in *.AVI container); interlaced. CC etc.; all fx rendered (green line in TL)
Export: h.264 / mpeg4; multi-pass; best render settings; deinterlaced
I tried different encoding settings and players.
I'm new to PP so I'm thankful for basic hints, like quality settings, render settings in PP regarding the output/export.
I just found this article
The pictures are looking like the problem i tried to describe. But... if i play the program in VLC - same problem.
(Now I skipped through the faq/help articles and some video tutorials, but this didn't solve the problem.)
Sorry for the delay.
There is no client monitor at this place. It's not a real edit suite, the stuff I'm editing there is for web only.
Anyway, the phenomenon is that - on the same monitor - the export is much brighter than the picture displayed inside Premiere Pro. And even an untouched (no fx on it) animation results after export in a picture with less contrast but more yellow. On other computer monitors the exported program looks similar.
So, I'm doing something wrong with the footage inside Premiere (wrong preferences, sequence settings, render settings or whatever) AND/OR during the encoding process.
All the best
The problem is, you really need that calibrated external TV for proper color correction. It's the only way to know you're seeing the image correctly. Otherwise, the playback program, the video driver and even the operating system can interfere with the signal, and you just don't know what you're seeing.
