    Green noise in shadow areas with H.264 MP4 files from AME

      Hello everyone - I am new to the forum and I have a problem I need help with... Here is the situation.

       

      I am using Premiere Pro CS5.5 (verison 5.5.0) on a Mac OSX 10.7.3 - I am using AVCHD footage from a Panasonic GH2.  The footage looks fantastic until I use color correction from the Three way color corrector or RGB Curve adjustments.  I apply the effects to taste and then encode them with the following settings:

       

      Codec: MainConcept H.264 Video

      1920x1080

      FPS 23.976

      Widescreen 16:9

      Profile: Main

      Level: 4.2

      Render at Maximum Depth - Checked

      VBR, 1 Pass

      Target Bitrate 32

      Maximum 40

      Use Maximum Render Quality - Checked

      Multiplexing: MP4

      Steam Compatibility: Standard

       

      NOTE - The green is NOT there when I take off the effects and render the same clip.

      Please help me anyway you can!  Thank you and I will be glad to give any more information needed.  As a side note:  I rendered a new verison with the Profile set to "High" and the Level set to 5.1, but it did not help, it just made the green not as bright.  I have to be honest in saying that I don't know what those settings mean - Sorry!

       

      Thank you so much!
