UE 4.10: Matinee videos are dark
I had a bunch of cinematic sequences set up in UE 4.9. When I re-recorded them in UE4.10 and imported them into Premiere, all of them were extremely dark. Furthermore, I found that putting them in Premiere in a track in front of another track causes both tracks to render, with the track recorded in UE4.10 seeming to "ghost" in front of the old one.
So that tells me that when it records the AVI, it seems to be adding some kind of transparency, which seems to be what's causing the darkening.
If I re-record the AVIs as WMV files using Windows Movie Maker, they then import into Premiere just fine.
I'm recording them as AVIs with no compression.
I went ahead and entered a bug report (UE-23651) for this issue. It seems the uncompressed AVI movie file is exported with an incorrect alpha channel (see image).
Thanks for taking the time to provide me with the requested information, and for posting this on the AnswerHub. Once the bug is fixed it will be integrated in an upcoming release.
