Complete beginner here. I have an animated sequence of some rotating cylinder objects and want to render this sequence and save it as a video. I thought that the view on the left of the screen represents what the rendered animation will look like. I have in "right view" mode in the viewpoint settings because that is the angle I want to record (first picture). However, the render looks different to what I expected (second picture).
Also, I'm unsure why there's purple light on the objects when they only have a grey or black material on them and there is no additional lighting in the scene (only the default light). The image below is what the final render looks like.
Was trying to attach a .blend but couldn't work out how to.
