I have the Blender 2.8 version from the 21st Sep 2018 I was looking forward to render a test sequence but cannot find a render button anywhere? Does anyone know where to find it?

  • $\begingroup$ You can press CTRL + F12 for that. $\endgroup$

While the pre-release builds of 2.80 were setup with Alt-F12 as the render shortcut, the final 2.80 release returned to using F12 to render an image and ⎈ CtrlF12 to render an animation.

You can find each render option in the render menu at the top left of blenders window.

2.80 render menu

The render buttons previously found with the render settings are no longer there in 2.80, although it is possible to replace them with an addon.


In case anybody who comes here is annoyed by the change I have a tiny addon that adds the Render and Animation button back in.
