I have been playing around a bit in Blender for the past month, and one thing I’m missing from other packages, is a project management tool.
Most artists have a couple of projects running at any one time, and I can’t work out how you manage this in Blender. All files seem to default to similar places, and if you send them elsewhere, the ‘recent’ paths that appear in the dialogue boxes, are only there for that session. I see in ‘preference’ you can set your paths, and this helps. But is there a way to set paths based on different projects? Ideally I’d like to open Blender and it has all the links the ‘projectA’, but if I want to move to ‘projectB’ I can switch. How do people mange this sort of thing?
Both XSI and Maya have really good project management tools. You can even create new projects, and all the directories that you need.
Actually, that reminds me, is there a way in Blender to create all the folders Blender needs, in a new directory?
Thanks for your help, I’m sure this is something that must have come up on the open movie projects, and there must be some way of managing it. I’ll dig through available scripts, and see if I can find something. Thanks!
