Vegas Pro 15 Project Markers in DVD Architect

I am having trouble getting the Vegas Pro 15 project markers to show up in DVD Architect (Build 67, 2016). "Save Project markers in render Media File" option is set when render the Digital Dolby AC3 audio from Vegas. The video is being rendered as "Magix AVC/AAC MP4 (Blu-Ray 1920x1080, 60i 25 Mbps video stream)".

My understand was Project markers are saved in the *.sfl file (which is located in the media folder along with the DVDA project file)

Any suggestions?

What happens if instead you use the Sony AVC or Magix AVC BluRay 1920x1080 Video Stream templates (and Sony Wave64 audio for the audio stream) instead of the muxed MP4?

To my knowledge the only files that can save project markers in them are .AVC/.MPG videos without any audio, like a DVD or Blu Ray video file - without audio. I've tried what you describe and it never saves the chapter markers - only in the Sony Blu Ray and MPEG2 DVD templates.

And I've only got this to work on the Sony Blu Ray templates. Magix AVC/AAC does not work for DVDA as far as I've tried, and I really like the NVEC encoding from my graphics card, but DVDA won't accept those. You have to set the encoder as Sony AVC and not Nvidia NVEC.

If there's ever support for MKV in any encoder format in Vegas, that would let you put markers in any of those videos in that container.


I would suggest encoding it in the Sony AVC format and see if that solves your problem. I know the Magix encoding is better but it doesn't work well with DVDA from my experience.

Guys - Good suggestion, which I an trying now. I am cautiously optimistic as the Sony AVC template includes "Save Project markers in render Media File" as a render option, which the Magix AVC template did not. I will confirm if this did it later.

Yes using the Sony AVC/MVC Blu-ray template fixed the problem. I am not sure why the Magix AVC Blu-ray template lacks the ability to embed Marker information.
