      Sorry if I don’t give enough info, I’m not very tech savvy and am still new to the program.

      I’ve been making videos with Sony Vegas for a few months and after installing it on my desktop, whenever I drop a video clip into the timeline it should look like this: https://gyazo.com/13da4a6b57f55c33647458d4022a6ff3

      But it looks like this: https://gyazo.com/8fe2b9d87bfed08c7bca8807e1962a16

      Anyone know what the problem might be?

      I’ve been using Vegas for nearly 10 years and have never seen this. Here are some questions that need to be answered before any kind of trouble shooting can happen:

      What version of Vegas?
      What is the source of your video and how are you capturing it?
      Is the color shift happening with everything you import or only with certain kinds of material? What kinds?
      What video card are you using?

      I suggest you post this question on the Vegas forum as well.

      Please advise.

      Try this, it might work: use Handbrake to change the MOV files to MP4, then import to Vegas.

      Don’t give up yet. MOV is a container and there’s no telling what codec BoomToon uses to produce the content. Download Mediainfo, a free utility, open a file in it and select “Text.” This will give you a printout of every aspect of the MOV file — codec and a ton of other information. Lets see what’s going on in the file.

      If you want to do this off-line feel free to contact me via email with a copy of the Mediainfo printout.

      I’m using vegas 13 and the files are .mov files from ToonBoom, however I tried other video files and it does the same thing, as soon as I drop them into the timeline they look blue in the preview window, they also look that way when they render, re-installing didn’t seem to help.

      UPDATE: I found out something, if I render a clip in the program the way it is now, it comes out blue and weird, HOWEVER when I drop the rendered clip BACK into Vegas and render it again, it’s normal. I have no clue whats doing this, but at least I can make it work while I try and find a solution.

      (Sorry if this posts to you twice, I couldn’t tell if I did this right)

      I’m a bit busy at the moment but I’ll give this a try later. Like I said I have found a work-around so I’m not totally screwed, thanks for keeping tabs on this though.
