Hi friends!We're newbies in the 3d/Maya buisness and would like to ask you for an advice about the scene organization.
Say we have a room and some props in the room. Some are animated and some are not.
Looks like we need a certain way to group and organize assets, probably via references (ie table grouped with a pen and a notebook lying on the table) and then a certain master reference asset for the whole room and then reference the whole room into the shots, so we have certain control on whether we're adjusting something only within the shot according to the current camera or on the level down in the master room scene, or even further down at the table grouping and so on.
So, the question is what would you suggest as a pipeline for this probably simple situation, what is your experience about referencing scenes in that way and using proxies.
An additional question is about the cameras - can you deal with this as a separate entity and version it ans reference versions?
sorry if it is an obvious things we're coming from the real movies world to the virtual things ))
thank you for any wise advice!
