Why is only a small part of my Video Rendering or nothing at all ?
Answer: Most likely you have "Render Loop Region Only" selected by accident in the "Render As" window.
Three different scenarios normally indicate this problem.
1. Only a section of the project has rendered.
2. All that has rendered is a black screen.
3. The video has rendered OK, but when it gets to where the end should be, the video just keeps going and going, showing just a black screen.
This is a very common problem for new users of Vegas. If this has just happened to you, then welcome to the Club !!!
I remember this being one of this first big headaches I experienced when I first started to learn how to use Vegas Movie Studio. Please watch the video tutorial I made explaining how to fix this problem. Once you learn what this tool does, it can actually become a very useful friend and not a foe, when you want to test small portions of your project during the editing process.

Here is where the Setting is hiding in the Render As window - turn it OFF !
If you used the Make Movie function instead of Render As, here is where the setting is hiding - turn it OFF !
