Questions tagged [scene]

Using multiple scenes is a way to split a Blender file into sections for organization (kind of like the tabs in a web browser). The [Game Engine](https://blender.stackexchange.com/tags/game-engine), (pre 2.8) uses individual scenes as levels. Use this tag for specific scene related questions.
