btw. do you have disabled color management in the project settings?
project is set to 16 bpc?
No, I'm not using color management. Sometimes using 16bpc, but mainly just 8. Never had any issues before--the targa sequences coming out of my machine matched their originals except for whatever I'd done to them.
So, what's your source for this? Also Targa files?
Yeah--targa files transferred off an HD master tape. I can't figure it out--when I compare the source targa with my rendered targa, I see no difference. I'm using the exact same settings I've used for the past 8 months, I haven't updated my computer's software recently, nothing.
And like I said above, it happened using a targa sequence from another vendor and using CS4. So it's like a system setting or something but i don't know what.
I'm not sure, but this sounds like they are simply not importing them correctly. Maybe they misinterpet the Alpha and it makes the color fade and when whatever editing suite they use fills the transparency, colors wash out. Apart from that - Targas will always use whatever default Gamma your program has and directly encode the skewed color info, which in a computer environment is anything from 1.6 to 2.2 or in case of 3D programs, the Gamma you define in the render settings. Beyond that the format is completely agnostic of color profiles or additional calibration meta data. Maybe you simply mis-tweaked you monitor?
