I have no idea if this will help, but try checking 'Always suggest RGB
format for output' in the Huffyuv configuration. I quote from:
"When a program reads a Huffyuv-compressed AVI file, it can either ask
Huffyuv to decompress the video to a specific format (like RGB), or it can
ask for the "default format." Huffyuv's default format is the format the
video was originally compressed from, either YUY2 or RGB.
There are a number of video-processing programs out there which ask the
decompressor to produce its default format, but then malfunction when
Huffyuv returns YUY2. Huffyuv autodetects several of these programs
(Premiere, Ulead Media Studio's Video Editor, AVI2MPG2_VFW, and Bink), and
reports RGB instead of YUY2 to them.
The "Always suggest RGB" option makes Huffyuv do this in every application,
not just the four mentioned above."
I had a problem with Huffyuv and Vegas Video 3 as well until I checked that
option. However, I could open the Huffyuv files with VV3, but the picture
was distorted, so your problem seems different.
