DNG sequences and vegas 12

I've managed to import a sequence of DNG's (using Convergent Design 7Q) and all is well until I select floating point 32 full range. It looks fine when Preview is not set to Full. On full best it becomes several shades darker and unusable. Does anyone know what's going on? thanks

Re: DNG sequences and vegas 12

I don't edit in 32 bit mode but I found this suggestion on another Vegas forum. Hope it helps.


Whenever I switch from 8- to 32-bit color depth (full range) for the FIRST time in a project, the "View Transform" defaults to ACES RRT. This makes my flat footage look immediately cooked: colors go wonky and blacks and whites are fairly clipped.
Verify the behavior and settings that I described. Then switch "View Transform" to "off." Do you get 'back' your nice and flat image? Hopefully, you do.
I don't work with 4k, but I always cut in 8-bit color depth to maintain smooth preview. If I need full 32-bit, it's the very last thing I switch before I color correct and grade, usually by spot-checking since I can't (usually) get full preview rate at this setting.

Thanks for the reply but I do keep it to off and I still get that problem but only in preview best. Very strange.

I forgot to add that it's only with DNG files. Thanks

Have you considered converting it to a different format? Adobe, the creator of the DNG format, offers a free conversion utility just for that purpose.
