I used Brightness & Contrast as well as Three-Way Color Corrector to edit. When I export, I lose almost all of the color quality. I have tried QuickTime, H.624, and a number of different Codecs and it always comes out the same. I have pushed the bit rate all the way up as well. I'm not sure what else to do
To better understand, when you saw poor quality, that is compared to what? The original clip?
Are you viewing both on the same monitor? If you remove the effects, does the quality look better?
I discovered the problem was the monitor settings when switching from laptop to monitor
