Project Organization and File Structure

When working in production, it is important to keep your work organized. It is important to create a naming convention chart and establish a file storage structure before starting the project. It is not only extremely important that everyone follows the criteria laid out in the naming convention chart and the file storage structure, but also that they understand the organization and where to find the files.

A well thought-out and logical naming convention will help keep your production structured and allow it to run smoothly by preventing the loss of files due to chaotic organization.

In this chapter, you will learn how to organize and name the different components in your animation project.
