    I’ve tried the Bypass Button on and off, with and without the Nvidia GPU, restarting, etc.

    The track FX and the clip FX have no effect on the image.

    I’m using Vegas 13 build 545 64 bit on a windows 10 platform.

    Thank you for any help!

    Here’s a SS, Graham. The FX button is set to Enable. The sliders have no effect on the picture — this is how it came out of the camera. i just want to add a bit of contrast.

    Thank you for yur help,

    Hi Rob

    We can’t see your Track Effects window but have you tried un-selecting the FX Bypass in the Split Screen View ?

    Cheers !

    P.S.: Don’t forget to let us know if that worked or not.

    Thank you Francois — fiddling around with the FX Bypass dropdown seemed to do the trick, but I don’t know how or why. Even when my buttons were the same as yours in your SS, it wouldn’t affect the picture. But suddenly, it startd to work. I don’t see a direct way to add a SS to show you, or I would.

    Can you explain it?

    Many thanks,

    Hi Rob

    Happy to know that it prevented you from jumping off a bridge…

    But seriously, watch this tutorial from Vegas Creative Software. It should provide you with everything you need to know about that specific feature.

    The FX button is set to Enable.

    No, it’s not. In that first SS you’re ENABLING BYPASS – So, that Button ENABLES a bypass of ALL FXing, yeah, I know . . . .

    Thank you for tutorial tip, Francois — i have watched 6 or so! And I did use levels to adjust the brightness.

    graham, clicking on the FX Bypass button seems to change nothing in that drop down menu. Can you show me what it should look like when FX is enabled, please? Also, i dont see how to add a screen shot anymore. Is there a button I don’t see?

    Thank yoou,

    I’m using a VegasPro Black and White FX.

    FX Active and Not Active. My Snapshots Functions are working as they should. You can see the Buttons:

    Thank you Graham. One last request — is there a simple way to upload a screenshot here?
