What is the workflow for rendering/exporting grease pencil animation? Seems that the new updates for 2.78 are intended to make the grease pencil a production ready tool for making 2D animation in 3D spsce. There must be a way to render, right?

  • $\begingroup$ In version 2.79, a grease layer still cannot be rendered directly on top of 3D objects (except using OpenGL Render as explained in the answers -- But this rendering is a preview for the 3D objects, not a true one). However GP layers can be rendered and composited with the true 3D rendering, as explained in this video: Quick Grease Pencil composition with Blender which is linked by the manual. $\endgroup$

To render grease pencil animation you have to go to Render>OpenGL Render Animation. Render will have dimensions set in Render properties so it's best to draw while in camera view to avoid stretching.

One way is to render with opengl, using the menu or the icon:

but this can't be enough in some cases...
