I'm using the Blender Video Editor. I finished, rendered it, and went to open the file, but I do not know where my file saved to!

I want it to be saved as a video file and I would like to know where it is, but I do not. I've already tried to look through all my folders, but I don't know if I'm checking the right place.

    $\begingroup$ Check the Properties Editor > Render tab > Output rollout. Click there to open file browser which should be opened in the directory which contains that file. Other than that use OS system search and that's not Blender related then. $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Apr 16 '16 at 22:52

    $\begingroup$ The default path should be the OS' temp path or /tmp. You can change that path (in your Properties, Render tab, Output panel) to something starting with a double forward Slash (like //out, the Frame range and file extension will then be appended) to get your Render output saved next to your .blend-file. $\endgroup$ – Samoth Apr 17 '16 at 6:55

The output settings determine where your video file (or image sequence) should be saved to:

2.7$x$$x$

enter image description here

For 2.8 look here:

enter image description here


If you are rendering a single image (By pressing render or F12) The image does not get saved automatically, you need to save it manually.

in 2.7$x$$x$ use Ctrl+F3 to save the image, or go to the UV/Image editor and Select Save Image

enter image description here

in 2.8$x$$x$ Use the image editor and select Save as (or press Shift+S)

enter image description here
