Starting to move...

So I've animated 106 shots in the first two weeks of production... I haven't gotten to the crazy swordfights just yet but I'm pretty confident about everything ^ ^ The last shot I animated was an 800 frame one...

It's a bit too soon to make any projections but I'd like to do 250 shots a month so thats what I'll be shooting for this month...

I haven't looked at any of the finished 3d renders yet as my emphasis is on moving forward instead of wasting time and ruining momentum by tweaking off minor issues on shots... all the shots are organized and saved so if there is a prob I just open the scene file...fix and re-render... So on my workstation I have a "SHOTS" folder..this is what the hierarchy looks like...

SHOTS/Sequence/Sequence01/Shot_0001/C4d project file+audio files for lip sync+text file for notes

So I have a folder for every shot on the workstation.... then on the render server I have a folder with folders for each sequence and inside of that are the C4d project files for each shot that was rendered.... same project files that are on my workstation, you need to save them on the server to do network renders so I keep them for redundancy.... also everyday I use Allwaysync to backup the project files and other important things to external Usb drives... So the shot files are in 3 places for safety... 3d renders will be in 2 places.... If anybody wants to send me a 2tb bare drive or 3 ^ ^ pleas do! The 1tb drive on the render server is already halfway filled... will have to buy some more tb's soon...

  1. You are SOOOO ORGANIZED!! That's one of the things I have always admired about you - your project organization skills. I'm just starting out on a little project and I am a mess! No Organization!! Shit everywhere... held together by Post-its and chewing gum. *sigh* I need your ninja x9000 powers.

  2. I'm also working on a film,but a short film. I'm pretty much working the same way,organizing and backin' things up. It seems difficult at first but later it saves your ass >9000 times.
