SOny Vegas Renders with incorrect colours

Hopefully the picture below will explain a lot of the problem to you.

The first is my preview. This is what I want it to show as.

The next is SONY AVC Format

The last is WMV (the closest of the the two)

Neither are the correct colours as what's in the preview



Any ideas on how to fix this? Need to hand off to the client asap.

What is your source material. This could easily be a levels problem. Levels problems are super common with Vegas users.

Many cameras output full range signal levels, but when you render most of the time you want video signal levels. If you send full range to the encoder, then on playback the player will assume video levels and then expand the levels giving the situation you show.

Any DSLR like Canon/Nikon/Panasonic are going to have full range levels. GoPro also.

First, confirm that you indeed have a full range (0-255) by looking at your histogram. If so, you need to add a "Computer RGB to Studio RGB" levels effect somewhere in the chain. I usually add it to the Video output bus.

The annoying thing to remember here is that the Vegas preview window only shows your video properly when your levels are full range. Your encode wants studio levels so only apply the levels adjustment when encoding.

The inverse is true if your source is video levels. You need a levels adjustment during editing for the preview window, and then take it off when rendering.
