Stuart...
Vegas Pro v8b will process in 8-bit or 32-bit, your choice. Within 32-bit processing, you also have the choice of gamma 2.2 or a linear gamma to improve transition fades, among other things.

Unfortunately, using 32-bit is a wee bit tricky. One needs to carefully adjust FX settings (primarily the Levels FX) to realize the highlight recovery. Glenn Chan has a few very good articles explaining the process,but, the editor still needs to wrangle Vegas to use it to its best potential.

Read John Miller's post in this thread. It's very informative re: what 32-bit floating point processing means.

Thanks Bill,
seems I need to learn more on this before I use V8 to do anything in 32bit. I'll read the articles!
Thanks for the advice though! maybe using After Effects would be a simpler option for 'non engineer types' like me!

Even with these settings, the images are blurry and out of focus when viewed via a Windows Secondary Display. The same footage is razor sharp when viewed on the same monitor on an application outside of Vegas.
Ack, my mistake! I was thinking about the Video Preview.

For square PAR formats: You could uncheck the box which says "scale output to fit display" in the preferences for Preview Device. This doesn't work for DV though.

Affect Effects has a few of the same issues and a few different issues (Quicktime color management gone awry, not being able to see superwhites).
