I encountered a problem when exporting a video some time ago. For some reason, the standard DV codec on my computer in Avid seems to lift all the blacks when exporting.
I ran several tests, when exporting uncompressed the blacks were fine, when exporting with Avid DV codec, the blacks were fine. I thought maybe it was the way quicktime player was playing back the standard DV footage, so I exported some video using the standard DV codec, re-imported it and then exported back out uncompressed and the DV coded had permanently lifted the blacks into a nasty grey.
Has anyone else had this problem before?
I also tried exporting and importing using both RGB and 601/709 colours levels and neither made any difference. Aswell as exporting in 16x9 square pixel and anamorphic DV.
