I'm doing an scene based on the Solar System (in Cycles), with the inconvenient that when i press 'Render' and then i press 'Save the Image As' it looks better, brighter and more defined than when i press Animation. I saved the two images as PNG (Because i needed as Alpha images for later)but when i imported them to an editing software (on this case, Adobe After Effects) I can clearly see the difference...starting from the definition of the Orbit/Line. I hope someone can lend me a hand about this one, i'm getting troubled.

  • $\begingroup$ On your render presets, are you rendering at 100% resolution? $\endgroup$ – user1853 Jun 1 '15 at 14:13
  • $\begingroup$ Oh, you are right! i really missed that one this time :( Hmm, and about the bit depth, which one is the best? and also is there any way in order to add sightly, more color to the image? $\endgroup$ – beavoru Jun 1 '15 at 14:24

    $\begingroup$ If you are going to post process the image use a higher bit depth like 16bit. Colorwise... deal with it in afterFX. $\endgroup$ – user1853 Jun 1 '15 at 14:37

Make sure the resolution for the final render is set at 100%.

If you are going to do further compositing/postproduction/color correction in other software, render to an image sequence in a lossless format using a higher bit depht like 16bit per channel.
