A big issue with Zarx

Post by FailToilet » Fri Apr 13, 2018 4:35 am

Hello Everyone.

Recently I've finished my big After effects project and i've rendered a Loseless file in order to encode it with zarx.

Now what i see after the encoding is done is that all of my red scenes are becoming orange and kinda lifeless, i'm trying all the options in the EXE but everytime it's the same, what should i do?

Thanks in advance!

What lossless codec are you using? What colorspace are you outputting to?

I've checked my AE settings and on Vido Codec it's says none lol, it's just an avi without a codec i guess it's the stock loseless of aftereffects, and sorry but i'm pretty ignorant i couldn't understand your second question..

That would actually mean it's uncompressed, I would recommend selecting an RGB lossless codec and trying again. I would also make sure it plays back correctly as a lossless file as well.

On which codecs are you recommending?

I would generally recommend the ones that are included in AMVpack, which are Ut Video Codec Suite or Lagarith.

Thanks.
So should I render again my AVI File with a new UT Video codec?
Or render the project itself from the beginning with the new UT codec(or lagarith)?

Try the file first, and if that doesn't work, try re-rendering.
