    Ok so I am trying to merge 3 videos of different size's.

    Video 1 - 1080x800
    Video 2 - 1080x768
    Video 3 - 1080x800

    So I go to Project Video Properties, and I change the width to 1080, and the height to 720 and I click ok. And it does appear...

    But as soon as I go to File > Render As and I save it, it goes back to 720x480, question is why????

    I'm going to guess that the problem is because Video #2 isn't the right size.
    Make the video 1080x800 by adding 16px to the top and bottom, then try it again.

    Are you sure the render settings don't override the project settings? I know After Effects and Premiere Pro do this.

    Afraid I do not really know much about Video vegas- more of an avisynth guy but I will give it a go

    You have not got a "make DVD compatible" option ticked somewhere have you (I have seen this in some other programs and I noticed you were using MPEG2 the other day)?

    Most programs alter the resolution of a video when rendering, as I said.
    Are you sure the project is set to the correct resolution you want the video to be?
    And when you Render it, change the template, under "Save as type", you can create your own if you click the "Custom" button.

    How do you merge videos? (and by merge, you mean put together, like two recordings of me would be in the same video?) I have Vegas Pro 9.0.

    Err what Berthenk said
    go to save as type after you click render as

    and pick your format, preferbly something like Sony AVC mp4 and then go to template and choose the resolution.

    And isnt 1080 x 720 a pretty odd resolution?

    I think haddad has put them in a sequence so you see the one after the other, what you are mentioning can be done using chroma key or a similar technique.
    It's basically this:
    1. Record on green/blue/any color background
    2. Cut out that color from the shot with a program like After Effects
    3. Put a background (or another video) on a layer behind the source video
