Hi I have run into this problem before and desperately tried to find the answer again but couldn't.

I rendered a scene, then edited in the video sequence editor, then went back to re render the animation and when I hit the render animation button it just produces blank black renders.

I am attaching a file.

    $\begingroup$ When I render your scene, it isn't blank. I can see your animation and the frames get written correctly. $\endgroup$ – Leander May 8 '17 at 16:24

    $\begingroup$ If you have any strips on the VSE those take precedence over the 3D scene. In the post processing section you can uncheck the sequencer box and the scene should render normally $\endgroup$ – user1853 May 8 '17 at 16:27

    $\begingroup$ See if any of the reasons for blank rendering applies in this case: blender.stackexchange.com/a/53633/1853 $\endgroup$ – user1853 May 8 '17 at 16:46

So I found the answer. It wasnt showing up because I was trying to use an imported video that wasnt connected in the compositor and I had left background transparent on under the film section of render. After trying to render a part of the video further down I saw objects in the render. To fix this you have to connect it to the render like shown at Video doesn't show up in render.

After it is connected the background video will show up in the render
