Caused by rBf7386b97571e: Fix T62612: Saving with "Remap Relative" makes ALL paths relative

Short description of error

  • I hope I can make this clear.
  • I'm using Linux (Pop!_OS 20.04)
  • I'm using Factory Defaults.
  • I included the whole project (simplified) as .zip to this report.
  • So, I'm working on a project and want to organise the folders a bit better. I want the Video Editor file comp_0001.blend to be located from /3d/comp/comp_0001.blend to /comp/comp_0001.blend.

Here is a capture of how files were and how I want them to be - As you can see, the COMP folder should locate at the root of the project:

  • So, I just though of using 'Save As...' and keep the Remap Relative option ON, as usual.
  • But then all the frame sequences get this on their source frames:

Very weird. The folder 3d gets duplicated a lot of times. And of course the frames don't work anymore, since the path is incorrect. I think this is a clear bug. And I think a lot of people want to reorganise their folders like I do.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Unzip the file structure
  • Make Blender to use factory defaults
  • Open /main_directory/3d/comp/comp_0001.blend
  • Notice how the .png frames get loaded normally (hopefully, should load nicely, they use relative mapping for path)
  • Save the .blend as /main_directory/comp/comp_0001.blend
  • notice how the .png frames' source gets messed up :(

Attached file structure with the .blends and source frames to make it easy to reproduce (hopefully):
