I am using Blender 2.79 on a fully updated iMac.
I want to create a 2-D animation and have 2 video clips before this animation.
The issue is that even if the clips are above the scene strip, or even as in the screen-shot, the scene starts after the videos, the videos do not render.
Strangely, they are show in the preview, but not in the rendered video or even image (F12), as you can see in the screen shot.
Am I doing something wrong, or is it simply not possible in the Blender VSE to mix video clips with the scene?
I could render the scene and then import the video into another blender file, but then I would have to render the movie twice and rendering time in Blender is already quite long.
