Converting Fraps footage with x264, output file's colors become brighter?

I have some 720p footage taken with Fraps that I'm trying to compress with x264 using MeGUI. The problem is, the output file's colors do not look anything like the original video nor the preview in MeGUI. The original file and the preview in MeGUI look identical. They are too bright. How can I fix this? I've tried using the 4 different matrices with ConvertToYV12, the colors look a little better, but not how I would like them to be. Here are some comparative screenshots.

Original, uncompressed:

Compressed with x264:

Will I have to correct this in a editing program?

Encoded with these settings: program --preset slow --pass 2 --bitrate 6000 --stats ".stats" --deblock 0:-2 --bframes 0 --ref 3 --output "output" "input".
