Chroma key not showing in the preview window
on Jul 28, 2014 at 12:48:51 pm

Hi,

recently im having problems with the preview window in Vegas 12 since its not showing what it should. Long time ago I created a template project file which i have been using so many times now as base for all my future projects. There i have some media that has chroma key applied so they lose their background. However, today i opened the file and i found that the background is there in all shots. I even checked back old projects files and all of them have the same problem. I havent changed anything in the settings or whatsover so i dont understand why is this happening because if i render the file the output looks fine. It only occurs on the preview window.

Also, some days earlier i had already noticed a different problem with the preview window too. If i crop a shot and i extend it on the time line it doesnt show properly on the preview as i play it. It looks squeezed instead of cropped. It looks fine when stopped and in the output. Why? Is there anyway i can fix this?

Thank you.

On the Preview Toolbar, check you haven't Selected FX BYPASS.

That is correct, in the Split Screen View icon.

Thank you, it was checked for some reason. Maybe I pressed it by mistake. This fixed the chroma key problem but i still have the other issue with the squeezed images. That looks more like a bug rather than a wrong setting.

Here is how it looks on the preview when stopped and how it is supposed to actually look:

This is how it looks on playback:

Somewhere amongst your settings you've not matched the PAR to the Settings.

Pixel Aspect Ratio = PAR

What Version and Build of Vegas are you using?

[Cain Nuke] "Vegas 12 build 367 64 bit"

Well, you're someway behind the curve - the last Build was B770.

Well, saying that, I'm NOT seeing a Build 367?... And this for the next Build up from you:-

Notable fixes/changes in version 12.0 (Build 394)

Fixed an issue that could cause image stretching for certain PNG files when used with Pan/Crop.
I had to read the WHITE Paper on VP 12 for you

Read it, and you'll see a lot of Pan/Crop activity went ahead. But your Build367 ain't mentioned . . hmm...

[Cain Nuke] "Thats whats happening to me."

What still format are you using? Was it the same? Do you remember?

Should you upgrade? Why wouldn't you?

You hope?!? As long your copy has a legal serial if needed then it shouldn't have an issue.

Why have you waited so long?
