Q: Why is only a small part/section of my Video rendering or nothing at all, in Vegas ?

Answer: Most likely you have "Render Loop Region Only" selected by accident in the "Render As" window.

Three different scenarios in Vegas Pro or Vegas Movie Studio, 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 Pro or Vegas Movie Studio. 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.

This information applies to all versions of Sony Movie Studio Platinum 12 and older, and Sony Vegas Pro.

Update for Movie Studio Platinum 13 users

If you are using Movie Studio Platinum 13, you should no longer experience the problem of Render Loop Region Only turning on without your permission. The controls for rendering a Loop Region are now hidden underneath a new drop box in the Render As window.

To access these new controls, go to Make Movie/Save to Hard Drive/Advanced Options.

    I rendered a video that plays fine up until around half of it. Then it goes back to the beginning of the video. Even though the video says its around an hour long, it always does that around 19 minutes, and when uploaded to youtube, it only uploaded the 19 minutes.

      If you don't have the "Render Loop Region Only" setting turned on, it sounds like you have dragged your original video on the timeline, past the automatic "loop point". This type of thing most commonly occurs if you have increased or decreased the playback speed of the video.
      By default, Vegas is set to loop playback of a video, if it is extended past the "actual end" of the video.
      The actual end of any video on the timeline, is indicated by a small notch in the top of video. If you drag a video "past the notch", Vegas will loop the video back to the very beginning.
      Hold the left mouse button down on the right edge of your video, and drag to the left or right, until you see the notch appear. It should naturally snap to this notch. Then re-render your video.
      Don't use the "Upload to YouTube" app inside of Vegas!!!
      Render your video using Render As or Make Movie first, then press the UPLOAD button on YouTube and select your video.
