Colour problem maybe ...

We take one of our album sound tracks and add a static illustration as a visual and render to Sony AVC/MV? .MP4 Template and upload to Facebook. No problem. Sounds good, looks fine. For the last few days we've been trying to upload another track but Facebook freezes at 100%. No dialog, nothing. We uploaded it to Vimeo so we could at least embed it into our Facebook page and Vimeo comes back to us with a 'warning' saying the image 'colour' is not recognized blah, blah blah but it plays fine and the colours look slightly desaturated which is no problem for us. OK, so this could be the reason Facebook is refusing to accept it. What do I have to do in Vegas 12 to ensure the colour is in 'gamut' or whatever the problem is. TIA for any help.

Is that static illustration full range computer RGB 0-255 and did you apply the Computer to Studio RGB filter before rendering?

Nope, didn't do any of that. I will do it now. I'm assuming the filter is in the video 'FX' list. Thanks kindly for the help.

FX / Sony Levels / Preset Drop Down: Computer RGB to Studio RGB.

Hmmmm, I've never had anything rejected because of improper levels. If that was the case, probably a lot of youtube wouldn't exist.

"[I] Sony AVC/MV? .MP4 Template [/I]"

Did you use the Sony AVC/MVC (*.mp4, *.m2ts, *.avc) Internet 1920x1080-30p template?

Please quote the actual message you got so it can be searched.
There is lots of blah-blah on the internet.

That did it, John! Facebook sucked it up without a hiccup. You're the man!

How ya doin', bro? This is what I got from Vimeo:

"Does your video look/sound strange? Here are some recommendations:
This video contains unknown color properties, and may look incorrect on Vimeo as a result. If it looks weird, try re-encoding your video with explicit color properties."

Like I said "blah blah blah" :-)
