Hi Willie1441,

Since you did not list which version of Move Studio you are using, based on the "Screen Shot", it looks like you are using Version 16. If so, check to see that the video is not on "Track #2", which would have the Picture-in-Picture TrackFX already applied.

1. Turn off the TrackFX
2. Move to Track #1 or add another Video Track (right click on a video track and select "insert video track") or on keyboard press Ctrl+Shift+Q.

Hope this helps.

If your video shows in the Preview Window at full size 1920x1080 before you begin a render, but switches to a smaller size when you begin a render, that is normal behaviour. Vegas automatically does this while rendering to save CPU power for actual rendering, instead of displaying in the Preview Window. There is no need to display a full resolution image while rendering. Your rendered video is still being rendered correctly at the full 1920x1080 frame size.

The Chief has also explained what could be the problem if your are referring to Track #2 in Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 16.
Track #2 is meant for Picture in Picture fx only, which automatically re-sizes and re-positions any video placed on that track.
:idea: Remember to turn everything off at least once a week, including your brain, then sit somewhere quiet and just chill out.
