Learn how to properly name your editorial sequences so you can track versions and revisions properly and hand off to other team members with minimal confusion, and errors. Also learn how to track your various sequences using a specific numbering system and connect them with the corresponding outputs.
- [Instructor] In a previous lesson, I demonstrated…my own personal system for organizing…my media, bins, and folders.…In this lesson, I want to show you my system for naming…my sequences as well as how those sequence names…correspond to my outputs, so I can always track any version…of any cut and never have any notes or ideas…get lost in the shuffle.…It's easy to keep all of your sequences named untitled.01…or untitled.02, but when you are in a hectic…and fast paced environment, your sequence naming…can be the difference between making…or missing a tight deadline.…
