Help a Beginner

Although I've done over 100 videos originally on a Sony HDR-SR12 in 2010 and then a HXR-NX5U in 2011 & 2012, I am totally stumped as to what to do next. I'm sure I used to be able to get the SR12 SD videos done in .mp4 on Vegas 9, 10 11 & 12, but now am on 13 & I can only choose .avi as everything else is grayed out. I have a 45 minute video with 47 slides edited in that needs 10GB to upload to Vimeo that will take over 10 - 15 hours & don't want to start over even if I knew what to do. The only choice for the project seemed to be NTSC Wide Screen & the only render choices were .avi. This is definitely my last interlaced video. Get the new NX3 next week. Just checked my Vimeo upload. 6% done in an hour. It's 12:45 am here in the Philippines. Will stay awake till I figure this out.

There was a bug in the video driver in the early days of the Ivy Bridge CPUs. You might have developed a similar situation with driver changes.

The Render As possibilities appear to be context sensitive based on hardware, what's selected on the timeline and who knows what other factors.

Thanks! Yes, there was a driver change this year. I do have another computer with Vegas 13. Is there a way to copy the .veg file and other files over to another computer. I had 6 tracks on the timeline.

Vegas 13 has an archive feature that will allow you to include all media used in the project to be saved together with the veg file to any new location.

Edit: Make sure you haven't solo the audio track, meaning muted the video track. If so, all video rendering options don't even appear.

I was ale to render to a 10GB .avi file, but that was the only option. Thanks, OldSmoke for the help with the archive suggestion, but couldn't get it to work. Maybe something to do with Plural Eyes. However, had the idea to use the final .avi 10GB rendering (which I like very much) as an input file on another computer. It seemed like a good idea. Unfortunately, same problem, only options for project OR rendering are .avi. The different computer is a 2010 Sony laptop and the first computer is a 2008 Sony RT-150 upgraded from Vista to Win 7. Both have had video driver updates in the last year.

UPDATE: Actually, the laptop will now only render the .avi file to .mxf instead of .avi
