Video FX preview in Vegas Pro 10e

When I use a Sony video fx plugin like "Brightness and Contrast" or "Color Corrector", the preview screen does not show the change. This works fine with Vegas Pro 9, but 10.0e (the latest 10) doesn't show the change. I have to render the video to see what I did. Have other people experienced this? Was it a bug corrected with version 11?

I'm using Windows 7 with 12 GB of RAM.

Re: Video FX preview in Vegas Pro 10e

OK, I just found the answer to my question. Apparently, I had accidentally clicked the Split Screen View icon, which causes the preview display to bypass the video FX. I clicked on it again, and now everything is back to what it should be.

Try checking the two toned button upper left hand side of the preview window. You have accidentally turned off the fx in the preview window, I'm thinking.

Thanks Jeff. Looks like we posted at the same time.
I'm glad to find that it was not a bug in the software; just a bug in the user.
So I let out a great big Homer Simpson style "DOH!!!"

Click the little drop-down arrow to the right of that button and you'll see there are MANY options. This is actually a very nice FEATURE of Vegas - open the help file and read about it.

BTW, NEVER use "Brightness and Contrast". Instead use the color correcter and levels controls to perform these same features. "Brightness and Contrast" is like using a sledge hammer to drive finishing nails.

Re: Video FX preview in Vegas Pro 10e

Thanks Edward,

I've switched to using the Color Corrector, and now I prefer it over Brightness and Contrast.

I took a look at the Levels plugin, but I don't understand why it has both Input and Output settings. I can use the plugin, but I'm not sure what I'm doing. The online documentation gives a very brief explanation, that doesn't really help.

Sorry, I was thinking of color curves.
