A video in MP4 imported in Blender doesn't work. I can see the video in the preview, but when I render it, it is transformed in a single image.

UPDATE I create new project, select camera and then drag&drop .MP4 video on scene. I create new 3d object that rotate in front of MP4 video layer.

3d object render correctly but video not play. Only in preview mode, video play correctly.

  • $\begingroup$ Can you add details to your question? Like how did you import the mp4, as a plane or a sequence in the VSE or in the compositor or what? $\endgroup$

I'm guessing your output information is set to an image output. You need to change it to a video output in the properties panel (see image below). Then hit Render > Render Animation.


You also may need to change some audio settings, which I would need to research to remember how.
