So I am working on a scene with objects, cameras, lights, paths, etc. My goal is to make almost a complete linked scene, however I want to change key frames, minor positional changes, swapping out assets. In prior attempts I made a full copy and that duplicated the entire material list, a linked copy doesn't work because both scenes change, and only settings would just be settings.

Maybe there is a workaround, perhaps saving a version of a scene, and then maybe you could go back to previous versions and change new ones? Perhaps make a scene linked, then unlink specific obj or animations.


Have you tried making an collection?

A - to select all, shift+D to duplicate, Ctrl+G to create new collection that is NOT Linked to the active scene.
