To Do or Not to Do
I feel like I've spent the last two days formatting drives and transferring data and not really getting anything done.
Oh, that's right. It's because I've spent the last two days formatting drives and transferring data and not really getting anything done.
Here's a bit of a conversation with Ian Hubert regarding Blender and sending files back and forth with all the associated files which go along with it. He tells it like it is:
"Surprisingly "packing" the data doesn't work (although that's what I thought). At least, it's never worked for me.
What I've found DOES work though is packing the data, re saving the blender file to it's own separate folder, then UNpakcing the data into that folder (I don't recall the options it gives you when you try to unpack the data, but they're pretty self-obvious).
Then you take that folder, zip the whole thing, and send it over. With any luck that will work."
Another exciting thing I found out is that if you do a motion-track with Voodoo and import the Python file into Blender, the actual tracking will begin at whatever frame number your first frame was in the render you used to do your track. So if you make a .tga sequence in Adobe After Effects it will likely be frame 1 freakin' thousand.
Luckily there's this rabbit here.
Oh look, the computer says it'll be done transferring this data in 1 day and 12 hours. Hopefully it'll speed up some when the other transfer is done at what's estimated to be 5:15am.
