rendering video

hi i am trying to render a video for a windows machine, i am running ubuntu and i think the format i want is Mpeg but there is no colour in the rendered version please help. Thank you

Well your posting in the Rigging and Animation Forum… you might have better luck in the Compsiting and Post Processing forum…

but having said that…

In your Properties Panel (right hand side) goto Render (camera icon) > Output > on the bottom right of the ‘Output’ box there is a BW / RGB setting… make sure RGB is checked (blue)…

then Directly under the Output box is ‘Encoding’ … make sure that is set to MPEG4 or H.264…

I can’t think of any thing else that would cause you to render Black and White
