I'm doing my first dvd and was hoping someone with some experience could answer this question.
When I output from AE and look at the layered photoshop file next to the AE original comp (PS window next to AE window) the difference in levels is DRAMATIC! What is happening? Obviously the two windows are open within the same LCD. Should I be manually fixing the levels of PS file to match by eye the AE original? It's important that they match, because these menu frames directly follow movies outputed from AE.
Which leads me to my next question. I assume that once I go and convert the movies to Mpeg2 the levels and colors will change yet again. Should I bring the mpeg2 file into ae (if I can... don't even know if that's possible) and output my final frames with buttons from that?
