Try this ...

Create a new project.

Place the Sony Credit Roll on the timeline.

Now try the render.

Out of curiosity, do you have Vegasaur?

If you do, go to render Proxy and see if you have the IMAGE SEQUENCE option there?
BobDiMarzio wrote on 7/22/2016, 8:29 AM
I never noticed any options when doing a proxy.

Vegasaur gives you options.

If you have photoshop CC you can load a file as layers and then export them as a work around for now.

Maybe I missed it, but did anyone say if they compared the .exe file from MAGIX compared to the SCS .exe or are they the same? Has VP13 been rebranded to MAGIX name now or is it still saying Sony Vegas Pro?

BobDiMarzio wrote on 7/22/2016, 11:10 AM
I have other programs that I can use for an image sequence including the (free) Resolve 12.5. Since my hope was to completely transition to Sony Vegas Pro and avoid subscriptions, I would hope that all the feature would function and/or the development team would be available to explain why my hardware or operating system is affecting performance. Since my hardware and operating system works perfectly with all Adobe products, resolve and Hitfilm Pro 4, I doubt it's hardware related. I wonder if I must patiently wait until September to get any answers from Magix

I truly appreciate everyone who supplied suggestion to this very strange issue.

MovieStudioZen suggests a couple of solutions.....

I haven't tried either as I have the option. Use them if you see fit....
musicvid10 wrote on 7/22/2016, 1:55 PM
Just another longshot -- is your Sony/FileIOPlugins folder installed to Program Files, or to Program Files (x86)

Another possibility -- I hope Magix isn't selling a stripped-down version -- as some third party vendors have done in the past.

BobDiMarzio wrote on 7/22/2016, 3:09 PM
Sony FileIOPlugins folder is installed in Program Files.

Please create an incident here so we can assist you on this further:

Which Windows OS do you have Vegas installed to?

Also: Image sequence should be the first option on the list. The scroll bar is not scrolled all the way up in the screen shot. You likely already checked this, but just to be sure.
john_dennis wrote on 7/22/2016, 3:52 PM
I just restored a Windows 10 clean installation to my System # 2, downloaded Vegas and DVD Architect from the Sony site. After installing both, I was presented with the Image Sequence render option.
BobDiMarzio wrote on 7/22/2016, 5:21 PM
Hello Eric D. Although I purchased the software from Magix, Magix does not have a record of registration ( I presume that the current registration is through Sony.) So I cannot submit a Magix support ticked. I unistalled everything sony and reinstalled Vegas only. Problem continues. I would provide a Dxdiag but I cannot attach a file to this post. I am using Windows 10. So I will copy and paste

Could some one tell me what this render Image Sequence is all about and what's it used for? I googled it and it seems it's for making photos flip through very fast. If that's the case why not just render to a normal high quality .MP4 Codec?

Film was originally an "image sequence" long before folks were able to just save a full frame every 12, 15 or n frames and save difference for the B and P frames in between. As an input to Vegas or any other NLE, the image sequence has no explicit frame rate. An example would be a series of still images shot every hour by a still camera and played back on a 29.976p timeline, a.k.a. timelapse.

As an output from Vegas, the image sequence could be used for any number of processes like animation or computer generated graphics programs to create effects that never existed. I once rendered a short image sequence where the subject went through a door from a dark space to a light space where I couldn't get the two exposures to match in real time when I shot the video. I cut out the door opening as it changed frame by frame in Photoshop and spliced the two events together. Tedious but effective.

I have little information about cinema industry workflows but you might search for phrases like Digital Cinema Package, Open EXR and read this thread

Perhaps Bob would share how he uses image sequences.

Image sequence is the staple of animation video production.

In the early days of computer handled video - production workflows to create video in low processing power environments was almost always including image sequences.

In todays environment - VegasPro and combinations of product like NewBlue titler generator are best handled by image sequence, whereas there is far more control and ease of processing quality video generations within this workflow system.
BobDiMarzio wrote on 7/23/2016, 11:52 AM
I use Image sequences primarily for planer tracking with Mocha.
musicvid10 wrote on 7/23/2016, 12:00 PM
Here's one that was converted to an image sequence for batch processing in Photoshop, using my clipping indicator action.

BobDiMarzio, What version of Vegas 13 are you on? If you're on the latest version you may want to try rolling back the previous version.

If you're on an older release try loading the latest one.

I'm on Vegas 12 so not sure what the latest release is for 13.
NickHope wrote on 7/23/2016, 10:51 PM
I had some footage wherein I had a chunk of dirt on my lens and a whale shark was swimming through that part of the frame. I couldn't repair it by my usual masking/compositing methods in Vegas so I rendered to an image sequence and fixed each frame with the clone stamp tool in Photoshop. Long-winded but effective. That's the one time I've used an image sequence.
BobDiMarzio wrote on 7/24/2016, 11:03 AM
Byron K, I just got Sony Vegas Pro 13 using the current Magix offer. So, I do not have the option of rolling back.
