In a tutorial at 3:22 the guy rendered while in node editor, but didn't say how.

I have tried other tutorials but they all don't say how to do this.

  • $\begingroup$ To see a rendered image in the background of the compositor window, the backdrop option needs to be checked. The image displayed is whatever is plugged to a viewer node. If what you want to display is part of the rendered layers, the image needs to be rendered first by pressing f12. Check this tutorial: cgcookie.com/blender/2011/01/11/… $\endgroup$

At 3:22 he renders the scene by pressing F12.

You can render by

  • Pressing F12.

  • Pressing Render image in Info header > Render:

  • Pressing Render in Properties > Render settings > Render:

    enter image description here
