Hey there im using Vegas Pro 17 now and i was used to Vegas Pro 13 back in the day but now i got a problem i cannot fix myself and i cant realy find the problem behind it.

I recorded material of a game trough OBS in mp4 lossless quality
I can play the recorded footage in VLC player with no problems
But once i drag or import the material in Vegas it is all black and white or sort of greyish with just a little color glitching out at some spots ocassionaly.
Rendering the material results in the finished product being black and white as well so this is not just a display error.

here are the recording settings:

and here the problem displaying vegas and VLC player:

Hallo der Tobias !

If you can - try uploade one of your recordings so people in here can test if it's your footage is bad !

Hi Tobias

Also, Mediainfo on your file would help. I suspect that there is something funky with your original file. Granted, VLC will play almost anything you throw at it. It has an algorithm that compensates for missing or weird information.
