So, I have a video project I am working on, and decided to move away from Hitfilm Express and give Blender a shot. So, what i used to do in Hitfilm, is i will make a composite shot and then bring it into the sequence editor, and then add the video footage into the sequencer. When i use Blender, I assume that the "composite shot" is indeed the scenes, and I bring in the scenes into the VSE just like how I do it in Hitfilm.
So, I created an intro with text and a mask object (will provide a link to the .blend file). I added a scene strip into the VSE, and rendered it from the VSE. I then realized it was rendering the masking objects (plane) too. I then switched the Scene Preview/Render to Rendered, and then rendered it. This time the masking objects did not show. I was very happy.
I then spent the next 2 days or so searching in many forums, searching in documentation, searching everywhere, but I could not fix this bug.
Anyone have any ideas?
here is the .blend file.
