I'm just using avidemux to crop some video that has black borders, but for some reason, the colors change horribly the minute Avidemux gets hold of the footage.
The first screenshot is from Windows Media Player playing the raw video, before cropping. (I have cropped the screenshots to the same portion of the screen, or you'd see the massive gulf of black border I'm trying to remove). The second screenshot is from inside Avidemux, and is identical to what I get when Windows Media Player plays the video after I've cropped it in avidemux. No other filters were applied.
EDIT: Since there seems to be some confusion, the third screenshot is from Windows Media Player again, proving that the exported video file has this color issue.
What causes this and how can I fix it? I'm fairly new to video editing, so I'm not even sure how to describe the problem other than "it looks wrong". The input video is decoded with lavcodec. Using the 64 bit version of the program does not help.
