Have A Plan When Naming Files

Now that you have invested in an editing platform (Avid, Final Cut Pro) you are ready to jump in with both feet into that first big project; just a little advice, it pays to be organized! Before you log the first clip of your project, you should have already decided on a file logging scheme to help make your edit easier, and most definitely if there will be more than one person working on the same project!

Naming Scheme Suggestions:

1. Use Description field to name each individual shot

2. Use auto incrementing scene and use numbers to keep track of clips within the script. When a clip is logged, it will be automatically incremented.

3. Use Mark Good checkbox to distinguish between takes you want

When all is said and done and you have a beautiful finished project, it's time to archive those masterpieces.
