Im new to the video editing side of blender and here's the thing: i was stitching image sequences of a rendered animation i created and i want to take a step baCK and change something on the animation but when i try to render a new image sequence again, only blender does is output a blank, empty gray screen, my guess is that this is the video sequence rendering and not the animation, because i moved the image sequence strips away from the frame range, because i want it out of the way when rendering the edited animation but alas, blank

what am i not getting here? how can i get blender to render the animation again? and not the video sequence?

  • $\begingroup$ haha found the devil! When i entered video sequence mode, the post processing menu put a check on the sequencer and compositing checkbox. this adds the video composition to the render stack on top of the usual animation rendering or atleast that's how i see it, if anyone wants to add something to clear this i'd really appreciate it. $\endgroup$ – Pow Mar 4 '16 at 10:47

    $\begingroup$ To render animation of render layers instead of sequencer / compositor disable them temporarily in Render panel. See blender.stackexchange.com/questions/39673/… $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Mar 4 '16 at 10:49

Sounds as though you have not set your render output back to still images.

If you already have multiple sequences you want to re-stitch, just be sure to re-adjust your start and end frames.

  • $\begingroup$ thanks! what i did was i adjusted the frame range from 1-30 [opening part of the animation] and reposition every video strip away [outside] from the range. when i hit render animation, bam! not rendering $\endgroup$ – Pow Mar 4 '16 at 10:54
  • $\begingroup$ i already fixed it although by that time, i did set the setting to PNG $\endgroup$ – Pow Mar 4 '16 at 10:56
