Colour / Brightness issues with export

I am having a problem with exporting from animate pro 2…
once i have my scene finished and the colours look good in the render view, when i render a quicktime, the rendered file has a good 30% less contrast and is much brighter than the render view in Animate. (Viewed side by side on the same monitor)
To get around this I have been adding a brightness / contrast plugin to the display module, which seems to help, but it is still impossible to gauge the actual output.
Any ideas what is going on?

What type of Quicktime compression are you using and what quality level?

As a test you could export using the Animation codec set at “best” quality. This should give you optimal results.

yep…right you are! should have thought of that… thanks!
