Rendering video in H.264 AVC (1080, 29.96P) Edited video has 2 chapters markers saved. When I go to play file in VLC there are no chapters and the "Chapters" function is greyed out in Playback dropdown. Is there a setting somewhere in render profile that I am missing to include these saved chapters in the exported file?

Except in special cases, MP4 format clips don't support chapters, so you'd need to produce to WMV, MKV or M2TS to retain that functionality outside of PD. This article has much more info.

PD can't create chapter markers in MP4 files, consider using Drax or the like to add them for these special cases. The embedded Drax chapter MP4 metadata can be used in players like VLC as you indicate you are using.

Unfortunately, PD chapter marks are for the "Create Disc" module.
