Pan/Crop rotation problem
Hi everyone,
I am having a small issue with the pan/crop window, I am using it to create a rotation, and it shows up just fine in the timeline but in any render I do, it is like the rotation is not even there. Any ideas?

I cant see anything wrong with your Pan crop. Maybe put up picks of each keyframe.

What version of Vegas?
Recently on a secondary computer that's running small projects on Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 9.0B, I had to engage the "Stretch Video To Fill Output Frame Size" when doing the final render.
Otherwise my pan/crop settings for some events wouldn't work properly in the render even though they looked perfect on the timeline and shouldn't have required engaging that switch.
I wasn't doing rotation, but instead two tracks of PIP to put a corner box over both shoulders of the talent. It seemed like a bug but I didn't investigate it further once I discovered by accident for another reason that stretching to fill the frame worked in the render.

This is 9.0c
I will try what you said, I have noticed sometimes elements are not rendering quite the way they should lately, however, It is pretty rarely I need to use the rotation feature and thought maybe I was missing something. I have had a few pictures though where I have had to mess with the output aspect / source aspect to get them to work right, seems like more than usual but I chalked it up to the images not being framed properly for video.

The problem was Windows media video.
I was rendering directly to WMV, which was what the output specification was. When I rendered the same timeline in avi for rendering to FLV for a secondary application, the video came out perfect. This lead to me render to a very high quality AVI and just run it through Adobe media encoder (Which I was using to get the FLV anyway) which I found gave me better control over the output rendering settings. I was able to get a reasonable frame rate vs data rate at under 320kbps that I could not get out of Vegas. But it could be the aforementioned issues came into play here.

The WMV renders would be showing many clips and images used in the project incorrectly including incorrect aspect ratios, especially in event pan/crop. Very weird. I can't think of one issue the video had when rendering WMV, in fact, that was not related to event pan/crop.

I was also rendering to WMV, as well as MPEG-2. I don't remember at this point which I tried to do first, but after realizing that "stretching" on the render page was correcting the problem, I "stretched" with all following renders no matter what the output format was.
