I'm new to blender so I don't know what happened to my scene but anytime I render this appears instead of my camera view: enter image description here

What did I activate and how can I fix it?

  • $\begingroup$ Do you have more than one camera? $\endgroup$ – Denis Sep 24 '16 at 0:57
  • $\begingroup$ No, I have just one camara it looks like is rendering a noise texture of some sort $\endgroup$ – Estefanía De La Vega García Sep 24 '16 at 1:06
  • $\begingroup$ It looks like you have set a non camera type object as active scene camera. Select a camera in the 3D view and press Ctrl+0 (Zero) or go to the Properties Window > Scene > Camera and pick your camera from the list $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Sep 24 '16 at 1:10
  • $\begingroup$ No, it keeps rendering that weird thing that i don't even have in my scene $\endgroup$ – Estefanía De La Vega García Sep 24 '16 at 1:15

    $\begingroup$ It looks like a procedural noise texture from Cycles, so if Blender is rendering that it definitely is in your scene though it may be hidden. $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Sep 24 '16 at 2:57

You might have something hidden in preview mode, but not in your final renderenter image description here

Check the little eye symbols to make sure they aren't transparent

You might also have some after effect in your compositing node setup that is broken.

Please post your blend file.


Check also if you have a video in the Video Sequence Editor (VSE) that may block rendering the 3D view. You can swtich what to render (Compositor and/or Sequencer):

  • go to Properties Panel > Render
  • than Section “Post Processing”:
  • if you have checked [x] Sequencer and have clips or media in the VSE, than the 3D view will not render but the VSE instead, i.e. the “Sequencer”. So in that case un-check it for the Sequencer

Section Post Processing of the Blender-Properties panel Render
