I've tried the Vimeo preset, result seems to be the same. I'm already a Vimeo Pro member and so I've tried the 1080 option, etc. I've also done the high bit rate encoding, the source file seems to play nice and sharp like I said on any source I've tried, it seems to be the vimeo encoding that shifts the image, unfortunately coloring/encoding is not my strong suite, pretty new to the whole thing. This project is web only and so it really isn't that big of a deal, I am only using this as an example because I want to try to get the best export and encoding I can do on my own, Alexander you had awesome suggestions except I'm not 100% familiar with all the terms haha. Do you have any suggestions for finding a compression expert?
