Hi All this is driving me absolutely mental someone must know the solution
When i view any video within vegas via the explorer option it displays in the preview window nice and bright when i add a video too the timeline and preview it the image quality drops as does the brightness regardless of the quality.
The only way around this appears too be rendering the video in clips once they are complete before adding them back too the time line. Is this normal for vegas too do as its very difficult working with videos like this
The video's are captured from a Haupage HD PVR box.
The project is 1440x1090x32, 23.976p
The preview is 1440x1080x32 23.976p

I have reset everything too defaults and checked every setting possible. I run dual displays with my laptop being screen 1 and a TFT as screen 2. I only use vegas on screen 2.
