While Blender promises backwards compatibility across all versions, through loads of testing we’ve discovered that isn’t necessarily true. It is a tough promise to keep after all.

We have found that while Blender may open up and work with older files, the rendering results can be different. Sometimes it may be missing a texture, or you’ll see odd black streaks on your render. This is due to the fact that the rendering engine is constantly being updated and improved.

Ultimately, these are tough to trace down, so Renderjuice tries to match the Blender version you’re using as closely as possible.

How We Handle Blender Versioning

Since Renderjuice’s 1.2 release, the team has been working relentlessly on supporting as many different versions of Blender out of the box possible to iron out any strange kinks.

We currently use the following versions going from oldest to newest:

Your VersionOur Blender Version
< (LTS) (LTS)
< (current latest) (current latest)
> (current latest)

In a future release, following the semver pattern, your Blender version will be more specifically matched up to the minor version of Blender.

This will allow us to support even more versions of Blender.

If you need other versions of Blender, please reach out! We’re happy to help.
