Q; Rendering Scenes with the VSE?

Hi all,

Looking into some render management with the VSE, but running in some issues…

I have a blend file with 3 scenes, containing a different animated camera & ViewLayer output settings each.
The forth Scene contains the VSE with added scene strips, this all works as expected.


  • The VSE output is not obeying the output filenames from the separate Scenes.
  • The VSE is ignoring the render engine set in the Scenes, including the VSE. It always renders the viewport shading.

Am I mistaken to think the above is possible as a toll for rendering all Scenes/ViewLayers in one go?

If so, are addons the only way to address this?
