I have multiple scenes to render and in my "master" scene I have set up the render nodes to output the render of all scenes. This way I only have to hit the Render Animation button once and all of the scenes get output.

The problem is that I still have to manually change the render settings of each scene to match.

Is there a way to sync / link the render settings of each scene so that I only need to change them once?

More detail if it's not clear: If I want to render a preview, I have to manually set each scene to my "Preview" settings, but then when I am render for the final render I will have to once again manually change ALL of the scenes render settings to my desired high quality. Also, I am using Cycles.

  • $\begingroup$ I have also tried and looks like you can't apply drivers or expressions to all of the settings to link them back to the master scene. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ You may want to try Python approach. Here's a similar case described: Modify render settings for all scenes using python $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ There is a copy render settings add-on that comes with blender. $\endgroup$
