After searching the forums, I couldn't find an answer to my problem. I'm sure it has been covered before, but many threads I found have closed down due to inactivity :(
My problem is that whenever I compress a high res video in Quicktime Pro or Sorenson Squeeze, the video always end up looking really bright and desaturated.
For example, I had a video originally at 383Mb then I used these settings in Quicktime Pro to compress it to about 1Mb as a .mov file:
Frame recording: yes
Encoding mode: multi-pass
Dimensions: 924x520 (Current)
Alot of people on the forum say they had positive results when they use the H.264 codec. So I'm just not sure what I'm doing wrong.
I've tried other codecs, but they all seem to give the same washed-out look too except for Animation, Jpeg 2000, None, and PNG. But the video size using those 4 compression types are way too huge for internet streaming.
I've tried using Sorenson 3 on Sorenson Squeeze but I had the same result :(
Any ideas would be much appreciated!!
