Bugs are pests, and you don’t want them around. You want to get rid of them quickly and permanently, isn’t that correct? Same here. I don’t like bugs and prefer to squash them.
In this instance, I’m referring to bugs in software. Software bugs are as annoying as any pest or vermin. I can’t fumigate my Mac, and that wouldn’t be necessary. I simply ran into a known bug in my software. There’s no virus or malware to contend with. Just a bug.
So, what does the bug do? It affects the color of the movie when it is compressed to be shown on YouTube. Instead of being rich and vibrant, with deep blacks and saturated colors, the movie looks pale and unattractive.
After many days of painstaking color work and compression tests, I finally came across (thanks to the Internet) a possible solution.
I’m back to the drawing board now. Final Cut, actually. I’m headed back to revisit the color work and the potential fix to squash the rendering bug. If all is well, progress continues.
Based on the initial test, it looks great. The challenge, now, is to go through each of the dozens of clips again and test each one, one by one.
Pray for me :^(
