In 2.79 I could select a workspace, choose any scene and easily switch between workspaces - for example I had one scene for modeling and another one for VSE.

But in 2.8 I can't find a way to do so. It seems like scene selecting is now a global thing and switching between workspaces shares the same scene.

As you can see green highlighted part is a scene created specifically for Video Editing, but if I switched to workspace Layout - I'd still be viewing this scene.

I used to this so much, cause Blender doesn't allow to use same scene as strip in VSE.

  • $\begingroup$ if you mean what used to be layers then collections has replaced it a google search of collections in blender 2.8 will probably help $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @J Block I didn't mean layers or collections. Whole scene, which contains everything $\endgroup$

Just to clarify (or what I think the problem is): It's annoying to constantly change the active scene when switching between Video editing and any other operation.

The workaround is to use "Window->New Main Window" and use the first window for 'Video Editing' and the second window for everything else. I realize the convenience when you change the scene for Layout/Modeling/Sculpting/Animation etc. But this becomes an INconvenience for the 'Video Editing' workspace. It seems it takes another monitor to go smoothly.

  • $\begingroup$ Yeah "New Main Window" dedicated for special scene is currently the best solution, even for a single monitor $\endgroup$

I don't know for how long this option is presented in Blender (found it in 3.3.2 and 3.4), but here it is:

Pin Scene to Workspace

enter image description here

Just select desired scene and press pin icon.
