    Ok so just to get this straight, I have homemade footage filmed on a dv cam, original footage is 1080×720, so i composite with AE and i edit it with sony vegas 6 (export 720x480p). Now I don’t want to start a thread about vegas because this isn’t the right forum but first things first: So being a home user, I downloaded and installed the k-lite codec pack, which includes the mainconcept mpeg2 encoder, so I’m assuming everytime I render mpeg2 it uses the mainconcept. The dilemma? Ok well renderring out of vegas, I lose a huge amount of contrast and saturation, is this normal? I didn’t think so, so I use my premiere 2.0 which came with my creative suite and I used the adobe media encoder, but the same problem occured. Being out of options, and I really didn’t feel like just re-installing a new mpeg2 encoder because for some reason once I uninstall they don’t quite uninstall and then, codecs clash and I’m stuck formating, I downloaded the trial version of cinema craft encoder, which I hear is awsome. So i render with a few tweaked settings, now the video doens’t quite looked saturated or contrast rich enough but it’s a start, but sadly the full version costs wayyy to much and the water mark sucks. So what do I do? Because i would really like to get rich colors and stuff and my footage is well light and everything. anyways, thanks in advance
