No really, I’d love to hear about your workflow!

During a recent double over-nighter I found myself thinking about workflows. And the nitty gritty stuff too, like how frequently people version their project files, how they name their assets, and how they arrange their folder structures. I would really love to hear from anyone about the nuts and bolts of how you go about “going about your business” I know this is probably boring stuff to most people, but it can make or break a workplace. Here’s a list of other possible things to talk about.

Do you use any ingest management software? (such as fcp loader or flow by gridiron)
Network setup (do you edit off of a san / internal drives / external drives)
backup plan for old jobs?
do you have any network rendering set up? for what apps?
what do you use as your go-to codec?
do you have any must-have hardware?
how frequently do you version your project files?
(how) do you name your assets?
how do you arrange your folder structures?
Do you have a preferred bin structure in final cut?

Also, what are the worst parts of your current setup? Is there anything that you would like to implement but can’t?

Feel free to post in the comments, or private message me. I can’t wait to hear what you have to say!

Hello all, this is my little corner of "the cow"! I'm a vfx artist and I work in final cut, nuke and after effects. I love finding workflow hacks, and I'm always looking for a new keyboard shortcut! For more posts check out You Down With FCP
