dscully Posted May 18, 2013 Report Share Posted May 18, 2013 I'm making extensive use of Add and Lighten blend modes on my current project, and I'm having an issue with the black values in the content. Rendering a black solid out of After Effects CS6 in either mpeg2 or H264 results in a clip with a not true black value. If I take several layers and stack them on the timeline with Add blend modes, the display gets increasingly light grey. If I repeat the above with ProRes 422, the blacks stay black. Any thoughts? I'm worried about using ProRes because of all the warnings about it not being a preferred codec. All help is appreciated. Dan Scully Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
