Q: Why have some of the Rendering Template disappeared from the Render As window in Sony Vegas?

Answer: This weird and unusual problem has happened to me before. I think it occurs when a particular sequence of events generates a corruption in a hidden cache for Vegas, which then stops the full list of rendering options from regenerating itself. So Movie Studio or Vegas Pro gets stuck in time.

The first time this happened to myself, I un-installed Vegas Pro and then did a new install of the program. This did NOT fix the problem. I became so frustrated, that I actually wiped my whole computer and did a clean install of the Windows Operating System. Then I had to reload every single program on my computer. You DO NOT have to do this !

Solution #1

Try a full program reset.

Turn Movie Studio or Vegas Pro Off.

Hold down CONTROL and SHIFT keys at the same time AND ALSO AT THE SAME TIME double click program icon on Desktop to Boot program.

Window will pop up.

Select Delete Cache and Yes.

This will restore program to Factory Default Settings.

Solution #2

If solution #1 does not work for, try the following.

Before you read below, make sure you DO NOT have any of the Filters turned ON. Simply turning these OFF may bring back the full list of Rendering options.

First make sure you re-boot your computer.

Next start a brand NEW project. Completely forget about any existing project where the templates are not displaying.

Make sure to use the New Project wizard if you are a using a version of Movie Studio. If you are using Vegas Pro, just ignore this step.

Now import a new video clip (make sure this is not the same video from the other project where the problems are occurring). Preferrably add a video that is in a different video codec to what you normally use and/or different file extension.

Once you have added the video, SAVE the project.

Now go to Make MovieRender As and hopefully the missing templates have returned.

You may also have to then delete the original project that didn't work and start again, in case the corruption is embedded within the original project file.

    It is difficult to understand what you mean ?
    If I take a guess, I think you need to RESET the program.
    Instructions for how to Reset are here:

    If that does not help, it may be better if you posted a question in Slovak and then I can use Google Translate to read your question.

    If the program has become corrupted, the best thing to do is complete "clean install".

    You are a genius. Thank you. Remember kids you have to click on the actual program not the short cuts. That's what worked for me

    MS = Movie Studio
    You need to shut the program down before attempting a full program reset.

    I am trying to find the MPEG-2 template to render out to DVD architect 5 from Movie Studio 11 but it is just not there in the "Render As" options. I have tried your suggestion above but with no luck. I can't seem to find any answers anywhere else. Have you had any more ideas on this subject?

      Movie Studio 11 is only the basic version of Movie Studio and does not come with DVD Architect Studio. It is not set up properly for making DVDs.
      You need a Platinum version of Movie Studio for this. Platinum versions come standard with DVD Architect Studio as well.
      If you do have a Platinum version, then try a FULL Program Reset.
      Turn MS Off.
      Hold down the CONTROL and SHIFT keys at the same time AND ALSO AT THE SAME TIME double click program icon on desktop to Boot program.
      Window will pop up.
      Select Delete Cache and Yes.
      Everything is now factory defaulted.

        Thanks for the reply Derek. Yes I do have the platinum version, I had actually gone ahead and done a complete reinstall which fixed the problem but I will remember this trick for the future.
