    H.264 compression gives gradients hard edges, lossless filesizes are too large for uploading, whats

      When I've rendered a HD movie from After Effects CS3 with lossless animation settings the quality is beautiful and crisp but I want to upload my videos to sites like Vimeo so that I can use them in my website http://www.splurj.com and the file size is way too large (in the region of 6GB).

      When I've rendered the lossless video using H.264 compression the filesize is great but it losses quality. The colours become slightly saturated and any gradients have a hard edge.

      Can anyone tell me the best compression software (or way of rendering direct from After Effects) to maintain quality and reduce filesize significantly?
