I use the blender video editor with several scenes. The scenes contains images as planes (via the so-called addon).

They look good with a shading set to material in the 3D editor (render is also OK) :

But when I add them as scene strip, the look as grey boxes in the video preview (render is also KO) :

Is there any shading settings in the video sequencer ?

I'm using blender 2.90.1 on linux.
