[Sidefx-houdini-list] advice on a "set shot" workflow in windows!??!! (WTF)
Saturday, 22 May 2010 Sat, 22 May '10
I've tried such a system and found that its a hinderance or irrelevant if you're: * A slow typer. * Working on multiple files at once from multiple projects. * Use a non-labyrinthine directory structure... or a spreadsheet to launch scenes (with static names). * Reading/writing dependencies and output with $HIP. * Not employing multiple specialists to work on a shot. * Moving shots around or restoring old shots from archival. ... So far, under some conditions, not using something like setshot is perfectly understandable. "Peter Bowmar" <pbowmar at gmail.com> wrote:
Yeah, at home by myself, I have a relatively simple system too. I've seen whole studios working without one, on small and large shows, and I can't understand how you'd work without it...
