Washed out colors after converting avi video to mpeg4.
So after following maxofs2d's guide to exporting sfm videos, my video looks pretty good, but the colors are a bit washed out compared to the original video. It is nothing extreme or anything, but it doesn;t look quite as good. Is there any way to keep the nice deep colors of the original avi video?

Have you tried exporting sfm videos to mpeg4 to begin with instead of exporting to avi and converting it to mpeg4?

Yeah, but that looks terrible.

Define "washed out"
what are you using to watch the mpeg4 video?

The one best way to export an SFM movie is to do so as a PNG image sequence, then making them into an AVI (h264 codec) using VirtualDub or a good video editing program. Great quality, yet small filesize. Ideal for both viewing and uploading to Youtube.

Yeah, thats what I did. I difference between the two videos is very minor. For example a red engineer toolbox in the avi is a dark red like what you see when in sfm, while the toolbox in the mpeg4 video is a little lighter shade of red, almost reddish orange. After watching some other sfm videos, I think is might a normal result and I probably shouldn't worry about it.

Hm... Yeah, I noticed the compression did a bit of a number on the reds in my video too. Unfortunate, but I guess that's the price of doing internet quality video, eh?

Am I the only one that likes the way the mp4 videos look?

It make the scene slightly darker, and the colors slightly richer. in general it's not that noticeable, but if your scene is dark to begin with then it can cause lighting issues. ofcourse if you aware of the issue you can compensate. in a way it's alot like actual filmmaking since you often run into a similar issue there. (try being on a set of a film or tv show and you'd be surprised how ****ing bright the lights are)

If you have an outside editing program, try messing with the contrast, gamma, and exposure settings, or maybe even color correct, usually this helps me out a lot.
