With so many different kinds of files (textures, .blends, scripts, documentation, etc.) accumulated to do CG in Blender I soon found that I had to get organized way better than I was (which was not at all)! I used to have files in some way associated with Blender spread all over my machine! Not good!
So I ended up gathering everything that had to do with Blender together in one folder, then sorting all that stuff into categories each with their own folder. All my actual projects are in a single folder which has separate folders inside for each project. All files associated with a project are saved in it’s folder. The hierarchy for a house project then looks like this:
It goes from general to specific unbroken and each part has only similar files in it.
This set up has really streamlined my work.
I’d like to know how other users handle their blender files?
