You've got a color management issue somewhere. Unfortunately we don't know enough about your comp, what codec you're rendering to, the color space of your computer, or anything else to offer one of the several hundred possible solutions to your problem. Please give us more details. I suspect that you've got one color space defined in Photoshop and another is being used in AE.
I'm using a Macbook and I haven't really touched anything color management wise. On Photoshop, I have "Proof Colors" selected as well as have "Monitor RGB" selected.
My AE comp is 1280 x 720 with a frame rate of 24. I've changed the working space to my monitor RGB, sRGB, and none and the same issue is present in all these settings.
Are there any guidelines as to what I should do on Photoshop to make sure colors stay the same? I really can't understand why it only shows up messed up after render.
What codec are you using for render. How are you rendering? Render Cue or Adobe Media Encoder?
I send the composition to the Render Queue and do it from there. I have my render settings to "Best", and output module to "Lossless".
Regarding the codec, I'm not sure about that. How can I find out? Sorry this is my first time really with AE.
On the output module, I had it set to Quicktime before. I changed that to H.264 and the colors were fine after that. Whew!
Thanks for all your help Rick!
If you want the best quality with h.264 always use the Adobe Media Encoder to render it. AE's render cue is only really good for intermediate renders to a production codec. You need to research the difference between a production codec and a delivery codec. H.264 is NOT a production codec and should only be used for delivery of your final product.
