I am brand new to Blender (2.87 - Debian Stable) and have been trying to make a simple animation of objects and text that appears whilst I am talking. I recorded me talking using OBS and the resultant video is a white screen with a feathered transparent cutout with me in it at the bottom.

I have created a 3D model in which a scene made up of Objects (text and some boxes) I want to appear with the faces in the YZ plane being what I ultimately want to see. These objects have plenty of depth in the -X direction. Just in front of all these objects is a plane whose texture is composed of the video of me talking. I animate my talk by deciding at which frame through my talk I want to particular object to start to appear, and at which point I want it fully appeared, and I key frame a transformation on the X axis to that the box, or text, so it moves through the plane and sits just past it, giving a slightly 3D appearance to my diagram. I can play my animation and it all plays perfectly.

blender view of model to explain the concept

But when I come to render it, I get the video playing on the plane, but when the objects appear through the plane, they come out white rather than the color that they clearly are in the model.

enter image description here

I don't know what I am doing wrong. Can someone help.

I am not using the compositor and nodes (other than the compositing the image sequence of me talking on to the plane) because I don't know how in the compositor you specify a node is the output of the camera - there doesn't seem to be one.

I discovered what the problem is. I had world lighting turned up way too high and set to white. As a result it dominated, washing all the other color out. Turned it back down to 1 and changed it to black and all is rendering correctly.
