Preview problem with MB Looks and Vegas

Just submitted a ticket to Red Giant about a level preview problem that makes accurate color correction impossible when previewing to an external monitor from within Looks.

I've attached a few test pictures showing what I'm seeing. I took the same HDV clip and viewed it inside the Looks interface in both After Effects and Sony Vegas. Notice the black levels on the Looks RGB parade graph? The Sony Vegas version jumps to 1 which is also reflected on external monitor preview via Black Magic Intensity (the picture is washed out) whereas the After Effects RGB parade levels stay at 0 and the external preview is accurate.

Once you leave the Looks interface and go back to Vegas the preview from the Intensity card looks normal again (no longer washed out). Also tested with Cineform files and it had the same problem.

***Sorry but for some reason the pictures won't upload.
