This is REALLY bugging me. None of the filters, effects or presets I apply to my film appear on the rendered final. They appear in the canvas when I select that specific track, but when I select the main file or save the rendered clip, it only show my original footage.

Please help.

Are you sure you are opening the right file and not the original? I've never heard of this happening, but Axeman might have some more insight.

Well I have a sub-question now related to this.

I have two layers in Visionlab; the top is a woman with the greenscreen removed and the lower layer is a background image. Every time I render it, though, the background image doesn't save - only the foreground woman. What am I doing wrong?

Its hard to say without seeing the project. Some additional info could help as well, such as what render settings you are using, and what compression settings as well. and just to make double-sure, when you refer to Rendering you mean an export render, to a new video file outside of VisionLab, and not a preview render within the program, right?

Assuming everything looks good within VisionLab, and the issue only appears when you render, here are a few possibilities I can think of:

1. You are rendering to separate layers, so while both parts are rendering, they are being saved to two different files, rather than one. This option is used to perform final compositing in a different app, and can be changed in the Render Settings.

2. The Background image on the timeline is outside the area between your In and Out points, and therefore is not included in the Render.

3. Visibility for the background layer is turned off.

there are likely other possibilities as well, but those are the ones I can think of straight off. If none of those helps, I'd try attaching the project file to a Support ticket, so the Support guys can have a look, and possibly identify the cause of the issue.
