Question: How can I export a scene from one project and then import and use that scene in another project?

Use case: I often find myself working on a “test” project" for figuring things out and proof of concept. I use a test project so as not to hose my working Master project.
Once I have it working in the test project, I’d like to export the working scene from my test project and incorporate it into the final project.

Can’t find a hint of this in the documentation - any thoughts?

Save the scene, then copy the .tscn file from one project folder to the target project folder.

The other project will recognize it.

Just make sure you copy all the dependencies too.

Another option apart from copy-paste, export the scenes with the export tool, like when making executable, but export to zip instead with dependencies, and no binary conversion.

That way could be useful on big experiments with lot of useless files.

ps: The zip can be loaded later with Globals.load_resource_pack too, the contents will appear in “res://”

There is Merge from scene menu when right click on node.
Select scene file that you want to import, and select node from that scene.
Then you can get copy of another scene.
This would help also.
