I wanted to increase the brightness/contrast of an AVI video I have. What I did was go to the compositer, load the video file in the Movie Clip node, fixed what I wanted to fix but:

  1. The quality of the video seems to have dropped, looks more pixellated.
  2. I have no idea how to export the video file.

Does anybody know how to export a composited AVI file as an AVI or MP4 file?

Thank you.

  • $\begingroup$ Hard to know why the video quality dropped without more information from you. Do you have screenshots of your setup and what you're seeing. To render out of the compositor you'll have to render the animation the same way you would for a 3d scene. Setup output dimensions/file format/etc in the Scene panel and Render->Render Animation. You might consider using the Video Sequence Editor instead? docs.blender.org/manual/en/dev/video_editing/introduction.html $\endgroup$ – crazycourier Feb 6 at 15:17
  • $\begingroup$ I tried to render it but it says there is no camera (I dont need one as Im compositing a loaded video.) And if I add a camera it just renders whats on the 3d viewer :/ $\endgroup$ – Lechinor Feb 6 at 18:24

As mentioned in the comment, use a file output node or connect your output to the composite node. It's important to make sure that you're telling Blender to use nodes, in the compositor windows make sure "use nodes" is checked.
