Topic: New clue on colors lightening / washed out after republish
Hi, I have a new twist, and possible clue on the "colors washed out" problem. I know you've answered saying there are Flash issues, and ICC profile issues, but after over 1/2 day of changing settings, it comes down to that it changes only when republishing the swf file out of Flash 8.
FAQ #28 does not seem to be the answer, it seems to not affect anything.
I'm getting washed out blacks and an overall lightened image in SV Pro 1.8 (not 1.85*) consistently and only after republishing using SV Pro and Flash 8 -- but not when using the unmodified SV Pro viewer.swf file, or the unmodified SV Free viewer.swf file.
I have read all the threads on this and no matter what, the color space settings inside the images used did not affect anything -- what affects the color is the viewer.swf file.
Do you have any clues as to what inside Flash 8 might be changing the way the color is handles vs. the original files, Felix, which you compiled in, what, Flash MX?
I've used the free version extensively, and now my client who purchased the Pro version is very upset that I can't get his colors right -- and he's a graphic illustrator. It's making me look bad for recommending SV Pro to him, so please help!
- JPG images from my client using a Mac / CS3 / sRGB color space on output
- I'm republishing your .swf in Flash 8.0 using Flash Player 7 and 8 settings (no difference)
* Using SV Pro 1.8 (just requesting the 1.85 upgrade today - can that help?)
