I have several projects created in version 2.69.
When I attempt to open them in version 2.71 which I recently downloaded, the objects are either partially missing or completely missing. For instance, I open a file that has a human rigged character in it, but only the head and torso are visible. The limbs are not there, nor is any of the clothing or other objects in the scene. I also tried just appending them and get the same results.
I have never used any other version of blender before so I’m wondering if there is some trick to opening older blend files in newer versions of Blender. Or if that’s even possible to do.
