Unpopular opinion: How many of you like me will be sticking with 2.79 for a long looooong time?

Well, I take it out of a collection first, then copy/paste. And I just do one object at a time. I won’t be in front of my workstation until tomorrow to do a screencap, but I’d be happy to do it.

For me – “short answer: EEVEE!” :smiley:

It’s tremendous to be able to get high-quality real-time renders of what you are doing, as you are doing it.

I also liked finding the new “Workbench” renderer, which is very fast for test-renders a la the “OpenGL Preview” only much better.

I’ve frozen on the latest version of 2.79 for backward-compatible support of existing projects as I earnestly hope that the decision to remove Blender Internal will be re-considered and the feature quietly returned. Because I can’t do anything with most of my existing projects without it. (And, I’m still paid to support and to enhance those projects.)

No, I’m not a Blender developer, but I really don’t agree that Blender Internal had to be completely removed from the system – nor that it should have been. However, I can also anticipate that, having cleanly removed it and cleaned-up all the loose ends, the prospect of re-introducing it might actually produce something that is considerably better than before, while preserving compatibility with existing projects (of which there are legion). I’d like to see that be a very(!) high-priority “2.81” goal.

Node Wrangler

Node wrangler has been updated. I’v been using it in 2.80 for some time.

I will also be using 2.79. The reason is because of the fact that my laptop is not compatible with 2.80. In order to run it, your computer must have OpenGL 3.3 or higher, meaning more money spent on expensive GPUs. If you want to get a computer that has a advance GPU (ex: Gaming Laptops, Microsoft Surface Tablets, etc), you will have to pay an unreasonable amount of money. In today’s society, it’s becoming impossible to upgrade to new equipment, especially for people like me. Since these products cost more than the cost to make them, I don’t really see the point. Maybe this is why I always lose to the competition, All because of the computer I have. I guess I’ll just have to stick with 2.79 for the rest of my career.
