Render Output vs File Output

Hi. I am preparing an animation to use in Blender comp.

I am a bit confused about the workflow. I set everything using my file output node in the comp…at the same time I can see there is an output path in the Output Properties menu…will that override the comp output ? How does exactly work…? It is a bit confusing to have two ways of output animations …Shouln’t the output menu in the right bar get greyed out when we use the file output node in comp ?

Thank you …I am a bit confused about this .

Hey.
I think it outputs both…?
Depending on the names and directories it might override the comp files. So just make sure they don’t save in the same place and/or under the same name, and it should be fine…

This looks still relevant:
