Cineform Avi and Mov clips

Here are two test clips shot with Sony HVR V1, captured with cineform Neo Hdv, the first an avi and the second was an m2t converted to mov, used high settings. shot with Sony V1 1080i let cineform deinterlace, edited in vegas 8 as 29.97 progressive. they take a few minutes to load, about 41 mbs each. and there is a noticeable difference in the two clips, the mov. seems to be more vibrant in color, the blacks are blacker, and seems to be sharper, is there a reason why? however, with vegas the mov files are not handled well. they want to crash vegas where the avi clips do not. they crash vegas more if captured as mov. clips instead of converting,

Vegas can be head ache as it has two RGB profiles. This is the whole video systems RGB thing. For AVI Vegas askes CineForm for vsRGB (display black at 16,16,16), but not for MOVs (black at 0,0,0.) The AVI are higher dynamic range, therefore flatter looking. If you add the color correct that converts vsRGB to cgRGB, the two will match.
