The title explains my issue plain and simple.
Just a quick background, i do not know much about color spaces. But I do know that different
forms of media require using different colors (RGB, CMYK, all that stuff).
I'm assuming this is the issue in my case - wrong color space or exporting formats.
My question is:
What do I need to do to get the final video that I exported to look exactly the same (in terms of color) when
it's uploaded on YouTube? Strictly just the color, because I understand quality goes down when uploaded to YouTube.
Thanks for any help or suggestions.
You haven't given us much information about what you rendered out of AE.
I always recommend rendering an intermediate codec out of After Effects (Cineform, DNxHD, Quicktime with the PhotoJPEG codec, etc.) and then taking that intermediate file into the Adobe Media Encoder to create your final piece. The Adobe Media Encoder even has YouTube presets.
