How to import .blend files - Append function in Blender 2.8

Hey Blender-community!

Today I want to show you how to import an .blend file to a new one or just import particular elements of one file to another one without exporting an fbx or anything like this. This can be very useful in some cases.

Enjoy the video. Cheers!

  1. Thanks for the information.
    I open up the old .blend files from 2.7x in the new Blender 2.8x with the option uncheck "Load UI"
    The biggest difference is that Layers is now called Colletions. This is the way I do it.
