(PC solution)

Render it with another encoder and then export it with quicktime player as H264.
It exports a H264 file with correct color and gamma.

@ eldany
From last 3 years i always render with QuickTime Animation & then in QuickTime player i export with QuickTime H264 With some filter But trust me it is not good solution.
Now days X264 is revolution And for mac it is very easy to use with Directly quicktime player but for Pc i don't know how to do?

i have very bad gamme differences when i encode H264 QT movies straight from After effects but i do this:

Render the video with another codec (sorenson 3 for example)
Then i open it in quicktime player and select: File/export

Export: Movie to quicktime movie
Use: Broadband High

Options/settings: compression type: H264

It works for me. No color discrepancies.

Hope it helps.
