Sony Vegas Pro 13 Automatically making things brighter.

Hello! It's really as simple as this:

I don't know too much about vegas, but this has never happened to me before.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Sincerely

Swavo

I believe you have it backwards. The question is why do most players stretch video levels, which appears to the eye as darker. Vegas is showing you what is in the file, the difference you are seeing is a lack of level correction in the Vegas display. You can add this correction manually, just like the player has it baked in, by adding a Sony levels fx to your preview window then selecting SRGB to Computer RGB. There is also a check box selector for external monitor that will apply this adjustment, this setting is under Preview preferences.

If you where to render to Windows Media format, this format bakes in the level correction automatically. This is one reason people like to use windows media for upload to YouTube, as they get a 1:1 view in the YouTube player. Normally h264 content will appear darker when uploaded to YouTube because the YouTube player is applying the same level correction as the player you posted a screenshot of.

Vegas is a technical application that shows what is in the file at a rudimentary level. It is up to the editor to understand level issues through the display chain.

What you have mentioned Aaron is very accurate, unfortunately some will never
grasp it, and will always want an NLE to do so automatically.
For me, i prefer the Vegas approach instead!

Hey there!
I just created account to know more about your reply!

SO I tried SRGB to Computer RGB (Adding this to the c) but still when I render video in MP4 format, it ends up getting brighter! I'm facing so many problems due to this!
Where as while renderring in WMV format, it works just fine !
What should I do?

Wrong FX. You need to apply the Computer RGB to Studio RGB level FX.
