When I press render, it doesn't render what the camera sees, but instead a png image that I added as a plane (specifically a very heavily edited picture of my face).

I made sure the camera is set to the actual camera in the scene settings, and not the png.

I've also tried moving, deleting and re-adding the camera and nothing has helped.

Here's a Gdrive link to the file: intro.blend

You have selected the png file to be the source for the output (composite)

Select the rendered result.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, sorry about not dding pictures, I didn't realize that was discouraged. I'll use that advice in the future. Unfortunately, doing this just results in a black screen being rendered. $\endgroup$ – Ben Aviani-Bartram Jun 28 '19 at 12:27
  • $\begingroup$ You have to render, so that the compositor has information. Press F12 to have an image $\endgroup$ – user1853 Jun 28 '19 at 15:35
