    I am encoding my uncompressed quicklime footage in QuickTime pro to H264.
    The resulting footage is washed out (gamma shift), I know about the famous fix where you set the transparency mode to “blend” then the slider to 100% then the transparency mode to straight alpha and save. This improves the images a bit but its still looks a bit washed out.

    So when I encode the footage to H264 in quicklime pro it’s always washed out (even with transparency fix ).
    It seems washed out when I play the video in “QuicktimPro”, “DvixPlayer” and “Windows Media Player”.

    Now I tried encoding inti H264 with Adobe Encoder and the footage is like the uncompressed one ☺ (not washed out).
    It seems correct when I play it in “Windows Media Player” but still washed out in “QuicktimPro”, “DvixPlayer”, why is that?
