Re: Color Washed out in Encoded File

"Core Video" in NicePlayer is still QuickTime, but instead of using the ooold QuickDraw api to draw to the screen it uses OpenGL and the gpu. But QuickTime 7 is deprecated, so even if you report a bug to Apple I think they will just leave it to oblivion. A test and a bug report on QuickTime X may b...

Re: Color Washed out in Encoded File

Here's a quick test showing what I think is wrong. I used a player called "NicePlayer" that lets me select between quicktime and core video. The video with the HD 1-1-1 color profile is original, the one with SD 6-1-6 is Handbrake. http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y85/wdarkk/ScreenSnapz001.png http:...

Then why does the original h264 footage look fine before being reencoded?

Re: Color Washed out in Encoded File

Edit - I tried viewing the rat_ch_14.m4v file in VLC instead of QuickTime Player and it appears that the colors (of the HandBrake encoded file viewed on VLC) are the same as the colors of the DVD viewed on VLC. Maybe there's some metadata that QuickTime Player isn't responding to, and that's why th...

Re: Color Washed out in Encoded File

I think it might be the source's problem, I tried other de-interlacing programs and had similar problems. Thanks for the help though.

Re: Color Washed out in Encoded File

I haven't been able to find out what color space the recorder uses, but I did find out that it doesn't include a gamma atom in the files it produces. Could this be the cause?

I'm not actually sure how to get that - is there some way of extracting it from the mt2s file?

EDIT: I don't see any mention of the color space in the capture device's drivers. Plenty of color adjustment sliders, but nothing about color space.

Color Washed out in Encoded File

I've been working on a project that involves taking an m2ts file, deinterlacing it, and turning it into an mp4. I noticed that the output files seem to have washed out color. I'm using HandBrake 0.9.4 x86_64 (2009112300) on a Mac Pro (1,1 3GHz) running 10.6.2. VLC 1.0.5 is installed if that matters....
