Can somebody please explain to me how saving projects work?
I’ve spend past month and a half watching tutorials and I still don’t understand the very basic logic of saving in Harmony.
Here is my case:
I am working on a cartoon and it has several scenes and tons of shots. What is the best way to properly save those scenes?
Should I use Save As and create a separate folder for each scene/shot, or should I use Save As New version? If I use Save As, then it creates huge 1.2GB folders for each scene/shot and I have a total of 47 shots! If I use Save As New version it brings me to another problem:
If i for example open scene3 and save as new version to scene4, for some reason when I open scene3 I get a message that my sound file was not found. Why is that? Scene3 was saved and closed, why does that happen?
Also, when I use Save As New version, very often I have problems with naming drawing layers. I have a generic Drawings_1, Drawings_2, Drawings_3… etc, and when I try to name them I get a warning that the layers are used by another version. So I click no to rename the original, and voila, I return to the previous scene just to realize that I managed to redraw new image for scene4 on my previously completed image for scene3. That is driving me crazy!
What am I doing wrong and what tutorial should I watch to understand how to save properly? Can somebody please shine some light on saving in Harmony cos I really don’t get the logic behind it. Thanks in advance.
