adjusted camera focal length render is stuck at 50mm

I've changed the focal length of my camera from ~50mm to 35mm I want to be able to see the door and the ceiling in the rendering BUT the rendering is stuck on 50mm As you can see in Image 2, the ceiling and door are cut off. I've tried: -re-saving and re-starting Blender -making a new camera altogether and setting it as the active camera

Many thanks in advance!

  • $\begingroup$ Woops, meant to add: Something weird is that the focal length doesn't always save... Like I change it to 35mm then close Blender and re-open and it's at 50mm again. Here's the file: pasteall.org/blend/726cdf2243f64fb8a6bfc3935f82c75e $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ weird because it works fine for me, the camera view matches with the render: zupimages.net/up/22/20/nsg6.jpg $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for checking it moonboots! So the camera view / render view in your screenshots is ~50mm, not 35mm. As I mentioned, changing the camera focal length to 35mm doesn't seem to stick when I save and close. Do you mind checking if you're able to change the camera lens length to 35mm and see if it's still set that way when you close and re-open blender? Maybe that's part of why I can't render the 35mm view? $\endgroup$

You've keyframed the Focal Length of your camera at 50, so if you ever want to change the focal length you need to either remove the existing keyframe or keyframe the new value, otherwise the render will stay at a focal length of 50:
