Join Andy Beane for an in-depth discussion in this video File management and import, part of Maya: Advanced Modeling.
- [Instructor] So, one bit of housekeeping…that I do want to go over when we're working on…modeling and final projects is your file management.…So I'm here in the exercise files…and I do have a Maya Project.…And, inside any of our Maya Projects,…we have our scenes folder.…And, I do want to talk about these.…This is an example of what I see a lot…with either students or even professionals I've worked with.…When they finally finish a model, it'll go Books Final.…
Then they'll finish it again,…and it will be Books Final, Final,…and then Books Final, Final, Final,…Books, Final, Final, Final, really the Final.…I hate this Model Final, really, really, really the Final.…This is the Real Final, and I hate books.…This naming convention is terrible,…especially when working in 3D projects in a team,…which most projects working with 3D animation…will eventually move on to another team.…So I do just want to quickly talk about your scenes folder.…So you'll see that I've named mine with each chapter,…and in the end I actually will create a folder called Models…
