Sony vegas: Darker snapshop

Postby Liquified » Sat Oct 19, 2013 2:07 pm

Dear Community,

As i try to make a new snapshot of my footage, and place it again in the timeline, my picture is darker than the footage itself..
So how do i solve this? because i already do have Preview mode on Best -> Full, and if i try to snap in to a .PNG file, i only get a transparant file...so the only option is left a .JPEG...

Anyone do know about this? please reply, i'd really, really appreciate it if you can help me out :)

Sounds like your project settings may be altering the footage so when you export a frame and bring it back in it gets altered even more.

I'm not super familiar with Vegas so I can't really be too specific, I just know that if it is handling RGB in a special way as opposed to just passing it through (for the project or that particular video) then it will cause it to display differently.

English please...I'm going to go ahead and guess that the footage may look "washed out" when you disable special RGB or gamma handling/adjustments...if you want to adjust it for the final output, whatever...but the problem you are having is you are exporting adjusted material and when you import it again it is getting adjusted again! You do realize you could leave the adjustments off and just wait to turn them on when you ready to export your final render that would prevent you from having these issues...also, just a pro-tip, unless your monitor is calibrated you probably shouldn't be touching the gamma as it will screw up the way it looks on properly calibrated monitors :nono: ...most of the problem isn't the footage, it's the monitor it's being viewed on...

Alright, i understand that if i import something that got adjusted, it will get adjusted again, but, i dont understand the part i could leave the adjustment off and turn them on at the final render... sorry if i ask that, but im not really into the Rendering/Screen options... But could you please explain what you mean with Leave the adjustments off and wait to turm them on at the final render? :P

Basically, if you export a screenshot with the project settings set to a certain way, the screenshot will be exported with any modification, but if you have that stuff turned OFF it will not have those adjustments so it will match the rest of your footage. It's not rocket science...I'm not really sure how to explain it any clearer than that...simply wait until you are done editing before you adjust any project settings that adjust gamma and things of that nature.
