I have all the production files of an open-source movie in a folder. I open up a Blender file, say scene1.blend, and save a copy, say scene1_copy.blend, in another folder. This scene1_copy.blend, works perfectly, knowing where to find all those assets, etc.

Now I want to move all the production files to a new folder. I tried just moving them, but then my scene1_copy.blend cannot find all the production files, which is no surprise.

How can I let scene1_copy.blend know where to look for those production files?

    $\begingroup$ Linked files generally use relative paths, so if you keep the folder structure identical, Blender should still be able to find the files. Instead of a using Save as, try copying the files manually using a file explorer instead. Using Save as makes Blender remap the paths library files on save, changing their relative locations. $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Nov 5 '16 at 3:34
