If you create a scene for the Video Sequence Editor and start working on a project Blender will render the output from the VSE. But if you want to later switch it to render your 3D scene again (the camera output) where is the setting to select the source?

Usually I keep a separate .blend for VSE edits so I don't need to switch, but I feel like I ought to learn how to do this as it's pretty basic. I would expect to find this in the Render context but I see no place to specify the source.



If there's anything in the sequencer, blender will render from there by default. If you don't want to render from the sequencer even if there are strips, disable Sequencer in Render settings > Post Processing:
