Importing from Library - merge vs. XRef
« on: August 29, 2015, 06:12:09 PM »
What are the advantage or disadvantages of merging vs. Xrefing objects from the Library?

To me, Xrefing seems highly preferable since it won't bloat the file size.  What is the downside?

Really there is not any downside, except that XRef files are needed to edit or render the scene. But likewise as using XRefs in your scenes for other purposes.
Ragarding render or viewport performance, if that is your worry, there are not differences.
