Color Washed out in Encoded File

Post by wdarkk » Fri Mar 19, 2010 5:29 am

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.

Image
That's the original.

These are the decoded video in Movist, Quicktime X, and VLC. VLC seems a bit darker than the source (and oh yeah it also resizes it for no apparent reason when I select "Normal Size").

Image
I tried encoding it with ffmpeg in case it was x264 that was having a problem but no, it distorts color too.

What's the color space supposed to be?

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.

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?

Then how do you even know you're viewing the source correctly?

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

....considering that you weren't even using a deinterlacing filter in HandBrake, I somehow doubt that is relevant.

I believe that I'm experiencing the same problem. Here's what the DVD looks like:

and here's what the file encoded with Handbrake looks like:

If you lay these images one on top of the other, and switch back and forth between them, you can see the difference. I'm using Handbrake for Mac Version 0.9.4 i386 (2009112300) and VLC for Mac Version 1.0.5 (Intel 32bit). I'm using MPEG-4 (FFmpeg) instead of H.264 (x264). Here's the activity log:

Using the command line versions of FFmpeg and MEncoder I've been able to encode files that display color that is consistent with what the DVD looks like. However I encoded a file (with FFmpeg or MEncoder) that had the same washed out color as the second image I posted here, and that confused me. Unfortunately I deleted all of the files I had encoded while trying to figure this out because they were so disorganized, but now I realize that they could have been useful. However, I think that I have figured one thing out: in QuickTime Player, it makes no difference whether Perian is decoding the video or whether Apple's own decoder is decoding the video.

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 the colors look different.

I think it is just because it might be possible to maintain compatibility with quicktime. Presets and special options already exist for various devices, so a "fix quicktime colors" checkbox or whatever ends up being necessary might work. I'll try to get some more detail on the issue soon.

I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. HB already signals the proper color space in the container and, when using x264, the video stream.

Quicktime's H.264 color reproduction is screwed up. It's a known and long-running problem among video creators. Use a good player, like MPlayer OSX Extended.

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

Your screenshot of the original is in VLC, not QT.

wdarkk - I just noticed that the screenshot of the original shows that Movist is using FFmpeg to decode the video; and the first screenshot of the reencoded file shows that Movist is using QuickTime to decode the video (see the upper right hand corner of the windows). Try changing one of the Codec Bindings in Movist's advanced preferences to have the reencoded file decoded by FFmpeg.

My mistake, I was thinking of the gamma shift bug in the Quicktime compressor, not decoder.

The washed-out color is almost certainly a decoder issue and not Handbrake's/x264's fault, though.

Maybe the original h.264 files did not have a color tag.
QuickTime X uses colorsync, there was a wwdc session last year about it, but I don't remember any more what sey said.

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.

None of them seem quite the same, but the ones with CoreVideo definitely look more washed-out. I'm going to open a bug with Apple.

"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 be better.

HandBrake doesn't set the right color profile in your case, it does not read the one from your original file, but just guesses it from the video size.

I reported it as a QTX bug since it looks exactly the same there.

Is there any way to CHANGE the color profile to the right one?

And I don't think it's a bug in QuickTime X :P

The -M flag in the CLI will let you change the signaled color from the default, which is based on the resolution of the source. Values are 601 and 709.

I'm also having the same issues on my Windows machine. The color seems to be washed out in the encoded file. I've tried using different player like VLC and WMP but when the movie is played side by side with the original, it is noticeably different. I took a screenshot but don't know how to upload files to show you what I mean.

Comparing 2 videos at the same time is not a valid test. Even if your playing the same file, your not guaranteed to get matching results.

Thank you, it works very fine!
But is there a possibility to add the same option in the GUI? I really need it in the GUI!
Here is the X264 Settings, is it possible to add something like this to the x264 Advanced Option String in the GUI:

ref=2:bframes=2:subq=6:mixed-refs=0:weightb=0:8x8dct=0:trellis=0:colormatrix=bt709

Please, correct me, if it's possible!
