Switch from rendering a scene to rendering video

Hello I’m rendering an animation and i want to switch often between rerendering the animation ( the scene) and rendering the video sequence using the video editor. but when a video sequence is in the video editor it automatically switches to rendering the video sequence, so how can i rerender my animation? Would you use 2 blend files?

Or just uncheck “Sequencer” under Render > Post-Processing whenever you want to render the scene?

thank you very much
