Hey Guys,

I downloaded the demo, and was impressed with films and sfx people have done, so I thought I'd try it out... I wouldn't have posted this unless I figure it out, I read past posts, tried every codec, my last attempt was I did the file uncompressed 29.97 avi file, it worked but the colors were off, skin tones were a greenish tint, I hoped it was just alam dv, so when I exported back to avi after adding my efeect (wasn't sure what codec to use) it still had the offset of colors... I guess I have to wait for alamdv3(hopefully not much longer)... any help would be appreciated...
Thanks

What did you export the avi from to bring it into Alamdv?

Hmm...the only thing I can guess is that the problem must have to do with the codec. Make sure when exporting uncompressed you have the color depth set to "millions of colors", not "millions of colors+). If this doesn't work (or that's what you were already doing), try using the Huffuv codec; it's lossless (like uncompressed), but not quite as large a filesize.
