Colors become desaturated when exported

I’m working in Animate Pro 3.

Every time I export, the colors in my scene become very desaturated. I’ve tried exporting in several different compression types and exported as a png sequence, but I always get the same result.

How can I export my scene without destroying the colors?

Thank youuuu.

Are the files themselves desaturated, like when you just use a Photo Viewer or Quicktime, or are they getting that way in the video editing software, like Premiere, MoviePlus, or Vegas? It’s probably not your problem, but I’ve noticed that Sony Vegas messes with my colors when I make an MP4. Premiere, and MoviePlus leave my colors looking good.

I wrote this about a year ago:

“The desaturated colours issue had been driving me crazy, CRAZY!! No matter which format I exported my film as, compressed or not compressed, I was getting those bleh colours. So then I tried exporting as a PNG image sequence and success! Glorious unsaturated colours…until they were imported into a compositing program, exported and then the colours were BLEH again. No matter which program I used: final cut pro, quicktime pro, iMovie (all versions) etc I was getting the same results. After years of pulling my hair out and looking for a solution I found this discussion that might help:

Basically the article talks about Quicktime changing the colours so they don’t look too dark and oversaturated on tv screens. Experimenting with the workarounds discussed I now export my animation as an image sequence and adjust the gamma in Quicktime until I get a result that I’m happy with. I hope this helps!

ps. Here’s the thread I discussed this in:
