    what is the best way to retain blacks in a compressed movie?

    dtsquick Level 1

      I use After EffectsCC and Media Encoder to make .mov files photoJPG format 50% compression. Black backgrounds always compress to RGB 22, 22, 22 and the colors are less saturated.

      I also use Media Encoder and or ffmpeg to make .mp4 h264 files, same problem with the blacks and colors.


      I can get darker blacks with After Effects CS4, RGB 16, 16, 16.


      I would love to know a way to use compression and retain the original black and colors.
