Are you rendering to QT movies? If so, is QT up to date?
Yes and Yes!
And quicktime has been updated a couple of times since this problem began and its never made any difference to the problem.
I never saw this problem when i was using AE8 - it began with CS3.
Do you mean AE7? CS3 = AE 8.
Does the same thing happen when you render to an uncompressed AVI, or image sequence (i.e. targa)?
Have you updated AE to the 8.0.2 version?
Do you use a specific set of color profiles perhaps? Macs use ColorSync also for Quicktime, which may affect your source footage on some level. Another potential cause for problems is multiprocessing - some of the background instances may loose the color profile information and thus shift in Gamma.
yes - i'm using 8.0.2.
Not tried either .avi or targa.
Nt too sure what ou mean by specific set of colour profiles - I tend to set the colour management options to the HD TV set (its not in front of me right now, and can't remember the exact terminology). However, i have also tried it with SD TV and without any colour management switched on at all.
I work exclusively in 10bit uncompressed Pal, but the problem has occured with various codecs including QT animation (with and without alpha),
I have switched off the multiprocessing option, and will give it a try next week when i'm back at work.
thanks for the suggestions
