Eevee Presets / Cycles Presets

Thanks for reporting! I hadn’t tested 2.81.
I wrote a quick workaround to make it work in 2.81 alpha.

The add-ons sound useful. What’s not clear to me is: do the add-ons come with presets for Eevee and Cycles, or do they purely serve to store your own settings?

The latter. It comes with no presets and it just saves/loads your settings.

Eevee-Presets update 0.0.4:

  • update to blender 2.82

Removed “bpy.context.scene.eevee.shadow_method” and “bpy.context.scene.eevee.use_sss_separate_albedo” from the settings to save to make it work with Blender 2.82.

Cycles-Presets update 0.0.3:

  • update to blender 2.82

Big thanks for this add-on, gonna use it heavily. Do you have donations set up anywhere?

this addon is great. are you considering updating it for 2.90/2.91?


Are there changes in Eevee? I didn’t keep track of the current updates.
If an update is necessary, I’ll update.

I updated Eevee Presets to work with Blender 2.83 and 2.9+.

Your saved presets might not be interchangeable between Blender 2.83 and 2.90 or future versions!

The add-on now detects all Eevee settings and saves it. But if a setting is removed in a future Blender version, presets are broken and can only be fixed by hand (remove the lines in the preset file).

Update for Cycles Presets comes later.

Cycles Presets is updated, too.

Both add-ons got a new (the first and only) option: Save Film Transparent.

When there is no cycles_presets ditectory in blender config directory, I got this error:

Python: Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.92\scripts\addons\Cycles-Presets-master\", line 96, in execute
    with open(preset_path, 'w') as preset_file:
FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'C:\\Users\\user\\AppData\\Roaming\\Blender Foundation\\Blender\\2.92\\scripts\\presets\\cycles_presets\\Cycles'

location: <unknown location>:-1

Fixed by creating cycles_presets directory.

Reporting this. :slight_smile:
Trying to install your wonderful script but no luck. Haven’t tried old versions yet.

Blender 2.91

Report: Error
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “X:\Steam\steamapps\common\Blender\2.91\scripts\modules\” line 351. in enable mod = import(module_name)
File “C:\Users\Dot\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.91\scripts\addons\”, line 3, in < from eevee_presets import *
ModuleNotFoundError. No module named ‘eevee-presets,eevee_presets’

I think you have to delete the “-master” at the end in your addons folder and just leave Eevee_presets.
I remember getting that error but I’m not sure if that was the fix

Hi, under 3.0.0 I get an error:

Error: Failed to execute the preset: SyntaxError(‘invalid syntax’, (‘C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\3.0\scripts\presets\cycles_presets\Cycles - Empty’, 8, 35, “cycles._devices_update_callback = <bound method CyclesRenderSettings._devices_update_callback of[‘Scene’].cycles>\n”))

Any chance for a fix? This would be very helpful! Thank you.
