I have a scene of a large animation that is split up into many different files. They all share the same static objects in the same places, just that characters and moving objects are changed in every file, as well as a camera angle per blend file.
Now I've come across a problem that I'm consistently changing the background props as I go along. It becomes annoying as I have to fix all the files one by one.
However, blender has a link function on the file tab that I haven't used before. It seems like this could fix the inconsistency risk between scenes.
Is it safe and normal to have a blend file that has all the objects in the right place without any animation and all the rest of the files using that same scene containing the animations alongside it link back to the original file? Is there any catch?
