Vegas Color Correction

How do you crush blacks in vegas? Should I use the gamma settings, or is there a better way?

For a simple tool, there is also the black restore filter (stock Vegas filter).

The black restore filter does something else. You probably want to be using color curves.

These curve presets may be useful for studio RGB levels (the default DV and HDV codecs decode to studio RGB levels):

You can do basic gamma work (and crush noisy blacks to flat zero) with levels, as well.

It's a very easy filter to use.
