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.

Solution #3

Vegas Movie Studio and Vegas Pro, rely on other background Windows processes to work correctly, like .NET Framework. Sometimes .NET Framework stops working correctly and needs to be re-installed and/or re-started.

In the Windows Search box next to the Windows Start button, type Windows Features.
Select Turn Windows Features ON or OFF

Windows Features .NET Framework

Please note that the following information may vary, depending on which version of Windows 10 you have installed.
The version of .NET Framework on your computer, may be higher or lower than what I have written below - just use your common sense and adapt.

If .NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0) is not enabled

Verify that .NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0) is enabled.
If the box for .NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0) is not enabled, enable it by clicking the box.
Select OK, then reboot the computer.

If .NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0) is already enabled

If .NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0) was already enabled, you can repair .NET Framework by clearing the box.
Make sure box is un-checked and then re-boot your computer.
After the re-boot, open this window back up and then re-enable .NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0) by clicking on box.
Select OK, then reboot the computer again.

If .NET Framework 4.8 Advanced Services is not enabled (your version may be 4.7)

Verify that .NET Framework 4.8 Advanced Services (this version may be higher or lower on your computer) is enabled.
If the box for .NET Framework 4.8 Advanced Services is not enabled, enable it by clicking the box.
Select OK, then reboot the computer.

If .NET Framework 4.8 Advanced Services is already enabled (your version may be 4.7)

If .NET Framework 4.8 Advanced Services was already enabled, you can repair .NET Framework by clearing the box.
Make sure box is un-checked and then re-boot your computer.
After the re-boot, open this window back up and then re-enable .NET Framework 4.8 Advanced Services by clicking on box.
Select OK, then reboot the computer again.

After checking all of the above, I recommend going back to Solution #1 and resetting Vegas again, then check to see if your render templates have returned.

Solution #4

Uninstall your version of Vegas Movie Studio or Vegas Pro.

Download a fresh copy of the installer file.

Re-install program.

    Hi, Thanks for your advice. I tried solution 3. "Turn Windows Features on or off" shows that .NET FRamework 3.5 is off. I tried clicking it on and clicking "OK", but it then comes up with "Windows couldn't complete the requested changes" and gives error code 0x800F0922. I still cannot install DVD Architect Studio 5.

      There is obviously something very wrong with your Windows 10 installation.
      I highly recommend you re-install Windows 10 by doing a "clean install".
      Do not try and restore Windows 10 from a backup or using the Windows reset tool.
      You need to do a complete clean re-install and then everything will work for you.
      In the past, I have also experienced Windows 10 errors which blocked Vegas Pro from working at all. After re-installing Windows, all problems were resolved.
      I have a tutorial which explains what you need to do here:
      https://www.moviestudiozen.com/free-tutorials/computers-and-video-editing/548-how-to-do-a-clean-install-of-windows-10
      Make sure to backup any data on your C-Drive before attempting a full re-install.

      If you are referring to resetting Vegas, doing that has nothing to do with any saved projects.
      Resetting does not delete project files, as long as you have been saving your projects in your Documents folder and NOT in the temporary files cache. No one should be saving projects in the temporary files cache - that would be crazy to do that.

    A solution for those who are missing 'Image Sequence' as a rendering option, a solutions I've found is by installing the 'HEIF Image Extensions' from the windows store here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/heif-image-extensions/9pmmsr1cgpwg

    It's worked for me on Vegas Pro 14, and the option has since then re-appeared in my template list.

    I also just have the image sequence option DISAPPEAR for me. I tried everything listed here and elsewhere, Reinstalled the program. Before that, factory settings reset. No luck. Both Vegas 15 and Vegas 16 do NOT show the image sequence options in render as. Very frustrating, now have to use other programs to continue my work. Any idea on how to fix this ?

    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
