    SubCap subtitles altering the picture??

    Hello, I have encountered a very frustrating problem. When I try exporting my project which also contains subtitles made with SubCap, the subtitles affect the picture. Every time an individual subtitle is displayed, the whole picture becomes a bit brighter, and when the subtitle dissapears, picture goes back to normal.

    What is this all about? How do I fix this?? I am using Avid 7.

    Are you using a monitor or TV which adapts the brightness level to the picture content?

    Mac or Windows?  What codec is your media, and what is your render codec?

    I've found that when you have DNxHD media overlaying (or being overlaid by) a format that's handled by an Apple-provided QuickTime component when it's viewed outside of Avid (such as ProRes, or Apple's implementation of XDCam), then when you view the results OUTSIDE of Avid (such as QuickTime), then you'll see this issue.  It always looks fine in your timeline.

    As a result of Apple's mishandling of color, I either stay ALL in DNxHD/DNxHR for everything, OR if I'm using XDCam or ProRes media, I make sure my render codec is ProRes.

    Alternatively, if you do a mixdown, and export with that, then it should look fine.

    Windows. My media codec is DNxHD 185. I solved the issue by exporting Same as source, which resulted in DNxHD 185 file without the problem that occured before. Creating a mixdown would probably do the job as well. Although the source is AMA linked so the mixdown is not an option? Thank you for your reply.

    You can always mixdown - no matter what's in your timeline, linked or not.
