I just started blender and one of the main things you have to do is to render to make an animation, but I can't seem to do that. Whenever I click Render and then render image or render animation, at the top of the screen it says 'No camera found in Scene "Scene". I don't know why this is happening.

  • $\begingroup$ What is happening is exactly what Blender is telling you that is happening, No camera found in Scene Scene that means there is no camera object in your scene, so go about creating one as described in Shubol3D answer. $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Jul 16 '16 at 17:50

I don't know any other reason, except you have no camera in your scene.

You can add a camera by: Shift + A > Camera.

Or maybe you have a camera in you scene, but it is switched off for render. Check the little camera icon on right side in Outliner.

There are Eye for visible in viewport, arrow to prevent selection, and a Camera to toggle visibility in render.

I found another place to check that sorted my 'no camera' error. Check the camera setting in 'Scene' tab in the 'Properties' panel. Mine had nothing in it! Even though I had a camera in my scene

Properties Panel, Scene Tab

  • $\begingroup$ That is not unusual. You can have a camera, or many cameras that are in the scene, but not set as the scene camera. (An object can be set as the scene camera.) $\endgroup$ – David Jul 2 '17 at 13:03

All you have to do is press add at the bottom left corner of the blender screen. when you have finished clicking add, press camera at the second top of the options menu.

Press add at the bottom left corner of the timeline editor.

Now all you have to do is press camera.

Thank you for listening to my simple tutorial!

It is that easy. :)

no camera found in scene "Scene"

is the problem to your question.
