So, I just started using Blender about a week or so ago, so forgive me if the answer to this is literally right in front of me.

But I was editing a channel banner for one of my friends and added text behind it: enter image description here

But.. As you can see here, when I go to render it the text doesn't show up. enter image description here

At first I thought it was just because the background was transparent or something, but that didn't seem to be the case. How do I fix this?

EDIT: Here are the material settings

  • $\begingroup$ I don't know how exactly it should look but you can change 'Volume' to 'Surface' in Material Tab. $\endgroup$ – cgslav Aug 23 '16 at 21:31

In Material Tab change Volume to Surface.
