Colour range (Limited, Expanded) is something I've only thought of recently, and I'm worried I may have introduced colour banding into some of my videos.
When doing a standard MP4 export from ffmpeg, melt, Handbrake, Openshot, SimpleScreenRecorder, whatever, what will the colour range likely be? I would assume the Full range of 0-255, but seeing as all DVDs and Blu-Rays are Limited, I'm not so sure.
It would also be good to know what range YouTube uses. I'm finding it very difficult to find out much more than "TV = Limited, PC = Full".
Video sources I tend to work with:
- Component capture (PS2)
- HDMI capture (Xbox 360, laptop)
- MiniDV AVIs
- YouTube videos
- Screen recordings
- Android phone
- Sometimes various cameras/camcorders from various price ranges
All Standard Definition content is PAL - I hear NTSC is weaker in terms of colour reproduction but haven't seen any difference myself from eyeballing.
