Save Render Presets Add-On

by Blender Add-ons in Addons


Can I use the presets from different Blender versions?


Yes, you can. It's just important that the path you entered in the Save Render Presets add-on settings is the same in all blender versions. Also note that some settings are not available in all blender versions. For example, blender 3.0 has different Cycles samples settings than blender 2.93. Logically, blender 3.0 cannot save the samples settings for 2.93 because they are not available.


What is the difference between this Add-on and the “Copy Render Settings” Add-on shipped with Blender?


The “Copy Render Settings” Add-on is only to copy settings between scenes and you need to checkmark, what settings you want to copy.

Save Render Presets” makes your render presets available in every Blender file and it always saves all settings to avoid unwanted changes.



Where can I find the presets from the previous version of Save Render Presets and are they compatible?


You can find the old presets here:


Linux~/.config/blender/2.81/scripts/presets/


Mac/Users/{user}/Library/Application/Support/Blender/2.81/scripts/presets/


Windows C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.93\scripts\presets


Because the user can now enter a path himself, this problem is now a thing of the past.


And yes: the old presets are compatible. Note that some settings are not available in all blender versions. For example, blender 3.0 has different Cycles samples settings than blender 2.93. Logically, blender 3.0 cannot save the samples settings for 2.93 because they are not available.
