I used Boujou and a script in Blender 2.49 then opened the file in 2.79. Now when I render, I get redirected to a different screen layout:

enter image description here

And my composite that adds the video background doesn't load as well in this view unless I re-open the Composite Node editor.

Is there a way to do something similar to reset the settings to a project in Blender 2.79?

This is a wild step in the dark since I haven't used 2.49 in quite a while. But there's two things you can try.

  • Make a new file and append the data you need from the other file with SHIFTF1. That way you should be able to isolate pretty well what is broken and what isn't.
  • You can disable 'Load UI' when loading the old file.

  • $\begingroup$ I don't like jumping either, but it's the only thing that works with Boujou at the moment. $\endgroup$
