Strange Error in Both Versions 13 and 16

I'm including a screenshot to show you my issue.

I cannot find anyone else with a similar issue.

Both my Vegas Pro 13 and Vegas Pro 16 have the preview in a strange grayscale. When the video is rendered, it too, is grayscaled. The video is recorded in color and the preview is set to 'Best'.

There are no filters or effects applied. Every video project starts like this regardless if I tell it to match video settings.

 

Thank you for your time.

Please DO include a screen shot, meaning upload it to the forum and not just a link.

@Im_Confused can you post a screenshot of your Project Properties? It appears the pixel format is in 32-bit floating point. Is there a specific reason for this, as to rather the default of 8-bit?

I apologize for uploading incorrectly - Here, I'm pretty sure this is what you are looking for.

Turn 32 bit video processing off. You gain nothing from it since you are not using 10 bit or higher source media, all you are doing is wasting CPU and GPU resources and probably making the video look much worse than you want. Switch it back to 8 and see if that helps.

Im_Confused wrote on 5/20/2019, 7:07 PM

Is this what you meant? It doesn't seem to have helped.

You can submit one of the original videos so we can take a closer look? Preferably a very short one with only a few seconds.

Im_Confused wrote on 5/20/2019, 9:02 PM

This is rendered footage from the project. The original recording has no loss in quality or color. Regardless of video format, both Vegas 13 and 16 display and render as the video file that's been uploaded. Screenshot included of the original file as a reference.

Former users wrote on 5/20/2019, 9:13 PM

In fact, what was requested is that you upload an original video file via upload.

For this you will have to save one of your original video files in some domain of the internet (Drop Box, Google Drive, Mediafire etc.) so that we can download it and analyze it.

Im_Confused wrote on 5/21/2019, 12:23 AM

Ah, I understand.

To make the file size that much smaller - I just recorded a few seconds with OBS right off the bat.

And yes, it does not work either. Plays fine with all colors in VLC, but the same issue persist in both Vegas programs.

Try using a different codec in OBS, and make sure you frame rate is a constant 60fps.

I can't even see a little, only a light gray picture, when I place your file to the timeline. See the difference between your OBS file and mine

I tested your file in Premiere and Vegas. It opens normaly in Premiere. Only in Vegas did this problem occur. The only way to open this file in Vegas is by transcoding.

Very strange, thank you for the input.

So, originally my recordings were in Lossless and it seems CBR and others are working much better. Strangely, there is a dark tone by default now. I apologize if I am perplexed so much by this. You would think that default usually matches what you put in. But, hey, looks like we got over one big hurdle so far.

Eagle Six wrote on 5/21/2019, 11:44 AM

I think the 'High 4:4:4 Predictive@L4.2' in your format profile is tripping up Vegas, change that in OBS to match what @j-v posted above (High@L4) and your problem should end.

I'm always wondering that people 'buy' a professional NLE, just for editing screenrecordings of pcgames.

There is a huge Youtube scene that generates millions if not billions per year made up of personalities that make compilations of their favorite in-game kills, scores, etc... as well as other channels that act as reviewers for popular games, previewers of upcoming games, strategy guides, long plays (playing through an entire game), speed runs (trying to beat records for beating a game the fastest), etc..

Often times, they like to use pro NLEs to add effects to their videos, use advanced transitions, etc. to give them that more "pro" look vs. their competition. Many of these people also put out tons of tutorials about how to use Vegas that actually serve as a really nice video-tutorial knowledgebase, and some of them are extremely creative with the things they are able to make stock Vegas Pro do.

Not all of that knowledge is perfect, for instance there seems to be a myth going around that scene that there is an advantage gained by recording your game at 120fps and then editing it back down to 60fps in Vegas, which isn't true at all unless you want smooth slomo, but the majority of it is very useful. So, I am glad that scene exists.

I would go out a limb and say also that Vegas was one of the easier programs to hack. As a result, it caught on with people who normally would not buy a video editing software program.
