View Full Version : WME 9 encoding question

Is there a way to adjust the contrast when WME encodes an avi from VT[3]? It is seemingly making the picture darker after the 2nd encoding pass. I know I can lighten up the original rtv before I save it as an avi then encode it, but that is a PITA and a bit of a hit or miss prop.

I looked for contrast controls but didn't see any - I can't figure out why it is making the picture darker.

:confused:

Here's what I am doing.......


1. Saving rtv as an avi in VT

2. Taking avi into WME by "converting a file", selecting "Windows Media Server (streaming)", leaving MBR at default for A/V, 282 Kbps setting, then hitting the GO button.

Should be a simple thing - have done it a bunch of times, but as I said, it is darkening the picture noticably.

Any ideas ??????

I've encoded WMV files before, but never seen that happening, Jim.
