    I shot Prores HQ footage and I color graded it in Vegas Pro 21, in Vegas I get color banding but in Premiere pro it looks perfect. I used the Vegas color grading panel and i get the same results using the RGB curves effect.

    Is there anything I can do to fix this? I prefer editing with Vegas and I would hate to switch.

    Hey Jimmie, I’m not seeing what you’re describing on the still frames (?)

    But, the only thing that comes to mind to tell you is that, if you want to edit in Vegas, maybe do your color grading in Premiere and re-output the results into Vegas.

    Good idea but I would hate to compress the footage. Can you see what I mean in this picture?

    This looks like a simply settings problem in VEGAS Pro.
    I’m not an expert on this type of thing, but I recommend you ask your question on the official VEGAS Pro forums here. I was casually reading the official forum a few days ago, and read a post about dealing with SLog3. It’s important to set the correct settings, so that the proper colour space is rendered. It might be as simple as setting the Pixel Format in your Project Properties to 32-bit Floating Point (video levels). However, there may be more to the story, so please ask the guys on the forum I have given you. They should be able to help out!
