Is your After Effects comp set to be 32-bit, 16-bit, or 8 bit?
I tried all bit depths, no change.
Looks like highlight clipping as illegal 709 levels go through RGB colour space
Switch your AE como to colour manage 709 ?
or add a levels adjustment in AE to lower the highlights and bring back the detail
I don't follow-- "Switch your AE como to colour manage 709 ?"
I'll try the levels thing-- although I think maybe I had and it didn't recover it. Surely AE as a matter of course doesn't toss illegal whites as a matter of course for anything it's bringing in from a YUV/YCrCb/etc color space?
Thanks for the thoughts.
