Quality loss after exporting

PostFri Sep 25, 2020 9:55 pm

HELP! Everytime I export my files it always starts to lose quality. I would color grade my footage and it would mess up the colors after export. I've tried exporting in 1920x1080 with H.264 coded and restrict the quality to 80000Kbps/sec but it still won't give me the quality I want. What seems to be the explanation to this? and are there any solutions? thank you
