Darken Vegas's User Interface?

Hey guys, evaluating Vegas 8a (long time Premiere user, since ver 4), is there a way to darken the interface of Vegas? It's a little too bright for my tastes. Thanks.

Kevin

It uses XP themes, so just change your theme.

As Emre said, you have to change the Windows Theme (and THEME support has to be ON in the preferences - it IS on by default). The side effect will be that ALL programs you run will get those same adjustments. Plus, changing the theme has, in some instances, made the scrollbars on the timeline go solid black (unusable) and the solution is to revert back to the default theme or turn off theme support.

So, you can do it but there are some trade-offs you have to consider.

Thanks guys, not as elegant as PrPro's slider, but it worked.
