.MP3 Audio Renders

I'm kinda at a loss. I'm using Vegas Pro 16 bld.424. Windows 10 bld.1903 OS. My PC has an AMD 6300 6 core CPU and 24GB RAM. Now I know I've rendered audio files to .mp3 format in the past. But that option has completely disappeared from my Render As options window. I've seen some post in other places from other people who have seen a "no .mp3 render option" issue as well. Am I wrong or did this option disappear for some reason? And if it did, can it be recovered?

I would try a simple reinstall of Vegas first.

I did have the option within VP16 as well (I do not have a filter selected). I have no idea when it disappeared or why..just know that when I had an audio clip I was going to render out as an .mp3, it wasn't there anymore. Also, I did perform a reinstall of Vegas Pro 16 and still had no .mp3 render option.

I have the same problem with Sony Vegas Pro 13 - recently the Render As mp3 option disappeared. Anyone know what to do?

Is your PC online? Some of the encoders need to be connected to auto-register.. at least from time to time. Not sure about VP-13 though. As a work-a-round, you render it as a PCM file and encode that in LAME or another third-party MP3 encoder I like LAME and the WinLAME RC-3 GUI which has many more customization options (scripting) for audio folks. Otherwise the basic GUI is simple with the default presets.

Thank you for your help. Yes, my PC is online. I am aware of workarounds by rendering the audio file in Sony Vegas as one of the remaining options and then re-render using Format Factory. But since Vegas used to directly render as mp3 for years, I'm wanting to know how I can regain that functionality.
