Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with scenes, part of Blender Essential Training.
Another way to organize your data within Blender is to use scenes.…Now, scenes can be used to create different setups of the same objects or…completely different sets within your project.…So by default Blender has a scene and we can see that here in the Outliner.…We also have a window up along here in the Information Panel, and this allows us…to see the available scenes.…Now, if we want to add one, we can certainly do that.…
We have a Plus sign here which allows us to add scenes.…We have a couple of options here.…One is New, and the other one is Copy the Settings and Link the existing Objects and so on.…Let's go through these.…The first one is a New Scene.…So if I do that it creates an entirely new scene.…If you look here we have Scene and then we have Scene.001, and notice how that…shows up in the Outliner as well.…Now, because we just created a New Scene, we actually created a blank palette in…which we can place anything.…
So if we wanted to we could add in a Sphere, for example.…So now that Sphere is in this Scene.…
