Tutorial: Saving Node Groups


BlendMaster writes:

Hey Everybody! In this tutorial I will be showing you how to save node groups into your start up file. This is a super easy way to speed up your workflow because you will no longer have to re-create the same node set up over and over again in every scene that you make, You also don't have to worry about appending the node groups from files and forgetting where those files were saved.

I hope you guys enjoy this tutorial and learn something new. Thanks for watching!

I've been using Blender for quite a while now. I love Blender and its my passion, that is why I try to share everything I know about it with you guys. There is so much that Blender can do. It is not just a tool for 3D modelling, it can be used for photo editing, animating, and creating games as well. Over the years, I have explored Blender's capabilities and pushed them to the limit, and now I'm here to share those tricks with you. ;)


  1. Thank you. I have a node that I could not get saved into the start up file. By following your tutorial I have it in the start up file. It is great. Thank you
