And what exact output settings are you using? You have not provided any proper info. That aside, rendering such stuff would require to use a suitable format and it mopst likely will also require some form of LUTs/ color profiles and the use of the Compander effect to get correct ranges.
I worked it out... Thanks
What did you do, Tombo? Let us know.
Hi Kevin... sorry didn't see this till recently.
So what I did was ... right click the clip in the PR timeline and "Replace clip with AE Comp".
Then in AE I removed logos with Mocha pro, saved the AE project and then back in PR there was NO CHANGE in the levels... Perfect. If however you copy and paste the same clip into AE... do your stuff and render it out. The luminance is clipped to 100%... not good if you have details in those highlights.
