We are long time Premiere users (7 + years now) and have had lots of stability with CS3 over the past two years. This past week we upgraded to CS4 and now have an issue with exporting our flash files for web playback.
The color black in our flash exports used to match our website black so the resulting video online blended well and looked seemless on our website. However, the export now has the black faded and it does not blend at all online when the video presents a black screen. Any ideas on how to correct this? It looks good in our output preview but no good when completed. The resulting export with CS4 vs. CS3 is noticeably different. CS3 had a nice clear and crsip video while CS4 looks a little faded and the color doesn't look as good. Anyone know if this is a known issue?
We have a safe harbor built tsunami computer and we also use the Matrox acceleration. All of our Matrox software is updated for CS4.1 and is working properly. The issue here is exporting a clean video. ANYONE know if this new 4.2 update will address these issues?
Our computer has the following specs:

Thanks for the help.
Try without Matrox.
Figured out the problem. We had to de-interlace our titles. The proper way of doing this since CS4 does not do it easily via the AME, is to right click the title, choose field options and then de-interlace. A whole bunch of digging into this forum gave me the idea for the fix.
Glad that you found the problem, and thanks for reporting your method. Also glad that the forum helped.
