Changing a Job's Stage

As you complete your animation project, you can update a job's status to reflect where it is in the overall production process. You can classify jobs as being In Production or Completed.

In Production: The Job is still a work in progress. The other modules can still access this Job.
Completed: The Job is finished. The Harmony database still has all the job's components (scenes, elements, drawings), but the job neither appears nor is accessible from the Harmony applications.

In most cases, you would mark a Job as Completed after it has been finalized (inked, painted, rendered) and transferred to a medium like tape or sent to post-production.

You can change a job's status from Completed to In Production at any time to continue working on it.

If you want to remove a job and its data from the Harmony database and archive it, you can export the Job from Control Center.

To change the stage of a job and view the list of completed jobs:

1. In the Environments section, select an environment.
2. In the top menu, select Job > Change Stage or you can also right-click in the Jobs section and select Change Stage.

The Change Stage of Jobs window appears.

3. Select the jobs you want to change the stage.
If you want to change a job from In Production to Completed, select the jobs in the In Production list.
