I noticed that some nodes changed significantly with Blender 2.81 and 2.82.
Now I can't follow older tutorials, because some have different options than me.

  • Voronoi Node is totally different
  • Mapping Node is missing it's maximum / minimum clipping controls

Q: How to get these older nodes back into Blender 2.82?

Good news. Blender will automatically convert these old nodes for you.
Just get an older Blender version and copy/paste them.

  1. Download Blender 2.80 and create your material.
  2. Make sure the nodes are connected (or it won't work).
  3. Copy/paste an object with the material into Blender 2.82, the nodes will be converted.
