You mention that they are 32-bit AVI files: Do they have an alpha channel? If so, perhaps its transparency is compositing against Premiere's default black background, thus making the result dark.
It's just a guess, so ... try using Interpret Footage to ignore the alpha channel. ???
Thank you for your reply, I will take a look at this.
I also wanted to mention that when I just try to export the clip without editing or touching it in Premiere, the exported video is also extremely dark.
Your idea solved it!
Thank you very much!
Wow. Good thing you said "32-bit avi files", otherwise I would not have had a clue! You're welcome, and I'm glad it is working for you.
BTW -- That's really cool that your microscope can do this; especially that it includes transparency data. Very neat.
You could also try leaving the alpha channel alone and placing a white or gray matte behind it.
>leaving the alpha channel alone and placing a white or gray matte behind it.
Or any other color that can bring forward (meaning good contrast to) the stuff wanted emphasized.
BTW: Good catch Dan!
Microscopes are not cameras and I always suggest getting a tape based mini dv camera for editing purposes.
Craig, I laughed very hard at your post and, Jim, at your "response."
Yes, Craig. That was a good one!
I wondered what I said to get that response from Jim.
Note to myself: Find some of those cool smiley icon thingys somewhere and learn how to insert them in a forum post.
