# How do I save my rendered animation as a video/gif?

Blender is only giving me the option to save as an image, it took a long time to render, so I hope to god I don't have to do it again, but if I do, so be it. I tried looking it up and found nothing.

This is a picture of what I see:

If a series of images has been rendered, you will find them in the folder where Blender saves its renders, which is C:\tmp by default (check the path under 'Output' in the Output Properties tab, shown below, to check what your current output folder is).
