I’ve been trying to figure this out through all my projects and I suppose I’ve been trying to avoid a long extensive research process when I think most people here already know the answers.
We use Maya, Vray, Nuke & After Effects - we working on 32bit and 16bit exrs throughout including in After Effects (could this be the issue? Should we work in 8Bit to see the potential issues?)
Also, our exports are much better even as a .mov h264 until it hits youtube.
We have Da Vinci resolve with a grading suite, FCPX and we also have Adobe Encoder all for exporting - any ideas what is the best way?
What methods do you guys have? I feel like adding noise doesn’t cut it and maybe even makes it worse. Should I remove it or add a lot more?
What are your methods to improve this?
