How do I get a video out of this thing?

So, I have my sequence. I’ve clicked on the render movie button, where it says “Render this movie to a video, or image frame sequence”.
But the settings don’t have any video options. Only image sequences.
The official documentation shows a completely different option screen for output options.
How do I fix this? Or should I just make do with an image sequence?

Open up the Plugins window and select video plugins. Search for ‘video’
Prores and Avid are the 2 offered.
(And I guess HAP?)
If you’re doing special movie render passes then search for Movie and enable them for the Movie Render Queue.

Yep, those are all enabled. Still doesn’t give me an option to actually output a video

?? Not sure why it does. Are you on a Mac? UE4 or UE5?

I’m not sure either. Mac, UE5.
Wasn’t an issue using UE4

The HAP plugin is only for video playback within the engine.

I had the same problem, and was able to get it to render .avi videos by going to the “render movie” icon above the sequencer and clicking on the 3 vertical dots right next to it and selecting “movie scene capture (legacy)”


It looks like that’s done it. Out at least brought up the options. Hopefully that’ll save a few steps of image sequence exporting & compression.
Thank you.
Though why this is only available as a legacy effect is baffling
