I have a VOB file that i made from a DVD of mine, after i import to Vegas i notice that the colour looks kinda washed out in the preview window, same with a game video i have. In VLC the original VOB has better blacks etc.
What I've tried is changing the project to 32bit, view transform off. This seems to give the same colour as the original VOB file even when rendered out. If i keep 8bit settings and render using x264 and xvid they both render looking washed out, there are a few built in options that render 8bit looking normal like Sony AVC/MVC. The other thing I've noticed people say is to use the filter: studio RGB to computer RGB. I did that with the project set to 8bit and it looks normal even rendered to x264. The thing is though I've also seen people say to disable that filter before rendering.
What's correct? If the original has good blacks in VLC then surely rendering it out as an .avi or .mp4 with the same looking colours is best, and not the default way Vegas seems to handle it looking washed out in most export options?
