Can someone tell me how to fix this? It's getting me stressed out because I haven't been able to work on my project for almost three weeks now. ]=

Simply add the SONY Levels FX and choose the Preset to un-crush the blacks.

If you are wanting to read-up further on this huge topic do a search here for: Levels; Crushed Blacks; Studio RGB to Computer RGB.

Thank you very much for this. I greaaaaaaatly appreciate it! :)

I am able to get it evened out a bit, but I still don't even get why I even need to do this. :/ .... this never happened before. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the program. I fiddle around with the levels, and I can't get it exactly on spot, but I mean, it comes close. I use these videos for competitive purposes, and I worry that it will still be obvious that there's a color shift in there. I'll use it for now, but if there's any other ideas to regulate it where the screenshots color matching occur as the picture is snapped, that would be even better.

Why? Because Vegas treats the User's Levels with great respect and offers/presents back to the User the way it has been given.

This "assist" by Vegas has been discussed at least over the past 13 years, which is the time I've been using it.

Why are you deleting the event that you took the screen shot from? You should be placing the screen shot on a track directly above the event that you took it from and then toggle the mute button to do your comparison. I have no idea if the other event you are comparing it to is the same. It doesn't look like it is. In fact, the screen shot looks identical to the event that you deleted.

Also, can you show us a screen capture of your Project Properties. That may give us a clue as to what might be going on.

There you are. I deleted that other shot because it was like the other one I just took in the video and I wanted to use the shot I had just taken to show you what is going on. Nothing being changed to make the screenshot. I know what you mean about the double layer thing and turning layers on and off, but it still does the same thing.

Why are you using 32-bit Pixel Format? That's should only be used for 10-bit source which I doubt you are using and will cause havoc with colors if you don't know what you're doing. Try changing it back to 8-bit and see if it solves the problem for you.

Omg, you are a life saver!

Sorry, I still don't know everything about Vegas. The settings were defaulted this way. Thank you oh-so much. Seriously!
