I just signed up and I need help using Blender 2.8x.
This is the case, we receive projects from external artist. They created them in Blender 2.79 using blender render (CPU). As I have no idea of Blender and no idea how to handle this program they only teached me how to render Animations. As we need to create a lot of these Animations of functional prototypes we bought a PC with i9-9900K a year ago to save the money for external render time, but it was to slow. Therefore we decided to go ahead with a Threadripper 3990X 64core / 128thread PC with a RTX 2060 Super which is now running fine since yesterday.
Unfortunately v2.79 can only handle 64 threads. If I start blender twice some times all threads will be used, some times they both share the same 64 threads and it will be slower than before.
This is why I have installed v2.82 but the projects look completely different. Lights are missing and the surface also looks different. It will render very fast but it looks complete wrong.
I would be more specific of the wrong look of the project if I would know what I am talking about. Sorry for this.
Hope you can imagine or show me how to explain it better what’s wrong.
