Folder structure in commercials

Hi all

I’m looking to create a preset folder structure that makes sense in commercials.

In commercials the sequence is the edit. In a project there could be multiple sequences (edits) which use different and share shots. It doesn’t seem that the hierarchy of sequence/shots/etc fits this scenario very well. Have any other people come up with solutions to this that they might be willing to share?


Hi @john

I’m not sure if this helps but you could ignore the sequence entity and just use the shots entity. Leverage the “Cuts” entity to have your different edits that pull in versions from each shot with the correct in/outs or as many times as you need.

As far as a hierarchy goes it would end up something like Project/Shots/Pipeline Steps/Tasks/

Hi @PeteHart

That sounds like a good suggestion.
