I want to begin creating projects in version 2.8; however, I still have a couple created in 2.79b that still need to be wrapped up + rendered. I currently have version 2.79b on a server from which I use PuTTY to launch compute nodes on a Linux platform using a command prompt similar to the one outlined below:
Command Prompt Example
blender -b -y name_of_shot.blend -x OUT -o ../rendered_images/name_of_shot/name_of_images -a
You can view a list of Blender command line arguments here.
I realized that downloading 2.8 would override the blender prompts to automatically open the shot in version 2.8. I was wondering if there was a way to specify which version of Blender was launched when opening the file and rendering?
