Topic: Work Flow and Archiving your projects

We are continuing the topic from November since we ran out of time at the November meeting.

Everyone has their own workflow in completing their projects. Sometimes there are easier ways to complete a project and better tools that we are not aware of. What better way to learn than from others in our field.

We will also be discussing what you do with the project once it is delivered. Do you archive the project and if so how do you archive the project, or do you delete and move on? Marshall will be discussing back-up solutions.

Below is a sample of a workflow presentation:
  1. when I'm shooting a recital/wedding, I typically have 3 cameras & 2 audio recorders
  2. copy all my SDHCs onto a HD (in this example a master folder with 5 folders)
  3. use FCP to import/transcribe all the video clips from the master folder
  4. manually import audio files, pics, etc
  5. create multi-clip by .....
  6. etc.
