Vegas Movie Studio 9.0 Platinum suddenly rendering a certain clip as black

I'm completely confused.

I've rendered these videos hundred of times (an AVI) and the 2nd clip was always there.

Suddenly whenever I render, that clips only plays audio and shows up as black on the screen. What did I do wrong? Is there a setting for clips that would make this happen?

So Far I've:
- Checked loop region, rendered with and without, same problem
- Checked pan and crop on the clip, made sure the clip was front and center, same problem
- Moved clip to a different track and renderd, same problem

Help, please!

    freshjuice,  don't really know, but if I've rendered these videos hundred of times maybe I forget something. And the original clip has been altered.

    What you mean by render dear?
    Rendering is the process of generating an image from a model, by means of computer programs.

    Accepted Solution

    I found a suggested solution on another forum where they said change the Frame per Second rendering settings to 30. I tried that (it was at 24 frames per second) and the problem went away.
