For anyone that uses vegas (i use pro 10) and owns a vx2000 or vx2100 (will prolly most likely work with a vx1000 as well), i have some color correcting presets and advice and good render settings for you. it has worked for me and my friend and ive been using it to get pretty good ass quality and colors on youtube ever since:

Saturation Adjust preset:

Render Settings for MP4 Videos using the Mainconcept AVC/h.264 Codec (16:9) :

Note: for using these render settings (regardless if it is 16:9 or 4:3) to make it look as best as possible, you have to compensate for the h.264 codec, which once done compressing, adds about 0.06 to 0.12 amount of contrast to the clip (does not affect saturation or brightness). usually what i will do is seperately color correct each clip on how im going to want it look as the final product, then add a brightness and contrast from the Video FX panel, add it to the video track on the left in whatever track the footage is in, and set the contrast at -0.06 (for me -0.06 works best.) therefore you dont have to go through each individual clip and take it back those 0.06 to 0.12 notches.

[NOTE: in your properties {icon looks like a little gray list with an arrow on it in pro 10} you have to set it at NTSC DV for 4:3 or NTSC DV Widescreen for 16:9 stretched footy, and have it at field order lower field first, full resolution at best, motion blur at gaussian, and deinterlace mode at blend fields. also in the audio tab of properties change it to best as well]
