[Solved] Building in custom folder?

Ready for a dumb question? How do I build multiple branches without overwriting my build_windows_Full_x64_vc15_Release folder? I always rename my build folder before building a different branch.

OK, I figured it out.

make full x64 builddir name_of_new_build_folder

OK, the above works only once ,but how do you build again in the same folder? I get this if I run the above again.

A subdirectory or file C:\blender-git\blender\..\name_of_new_build_folder already exists.

There’s a rebuild.cmd in the build folder you can run for rebuilds. make full is gene really just needed to setup the build


Learned something new. I always did make full to update ,but nice to know about rebuild.cmd.
