Video FX

So I'm new to Sony Vegas, and I need a little help. I'm using Sony Vegas 9 Platinum Edition. I put an effect of on my video clip that made it really grany, and I'm not sure how to get it off. When it first happened I closed the program, started a new project and then tried again with a different clip, the effect was still on it. I see that there is a 'Reset to None' thing in these Video FX tabs but the truth is I'm not sure which effect I put in. If someone could tell me how to take the effect off I would really appriciate it.

Note that there are three places where effects can be applied: the clip, the track, and the entire project. The green symbol for the entire project is located at the top of the preview window.

... and the fourth level at which FX can be applied is to Project Media, which means that wherever that clip is used in the project, it will have the FX applied.

I have not been aware of this fourth mode so I went to the Project Media tab and right-clicked. Much to my surprise I saw an item marked "Media FX...". After I added an effect, I noticed there was NO INDICATION that an effect had been applied. The only way I could see it was to right-click again and view the effects chain.

Ideally, there should be a green icon on the image in Project Media window to be consistent with the rest of Vegas. Is there a way to reveal this? Note, I have version 7.0e.

I don't think this has changed for many years - instead of an indication on the media icon itself, if a piece of media is selected in Project Media and it has FX applied, the FX icon at the head of the window shows as green. The other way to check is, as you found, to right click on a piece of media and open Media FX.

Also note that there are separate Vegas Pro & Vegas Movie Studio forums. While many features are exactly the same between the two, some are not. You may find settings/techniques on this forum that you can't replicate in Movie Studio, and you may have questions that Vegas Pro users won't be familiar with. You may also find that folks on the Movie Studio forum are posting about things that you are also running into just because of the experience level. Many of the users here are professional video guys (note: not me) that have been doing it for years & years and have completely different issues.
