I'm a total beginner. I've created a simple animation consisting of a rotating image. It looks fine from the Camera Perspective. I've placed the lighting and camera appropriately. But when I render the animation I'm getting a black screen.
I slapped a meatball object into the animation and it renders fine. I'm suspecting that images are somehow unsupported unless they're attached to an object. Is this true?
The program allows me to add an image to the animation workspace and manipulate its parameters. It seems like a cruel joke not to render the image. Or is there some magic attribute I need to set deep in the image or elsewhere to get it to render?
I've checked the Compositing and all of the usual suspects (as per many Google searches) for black images.
Any insight would be appreciated!
