Example text

If you don’t approach file management with a plan, you will almost certainly end up rendering the wrong version of some file, or worse yet, accidentally saving bad files over good ones, which can potentially ruin weeks of work. The digital assets of your project will consist of storyboards, sounds, models and rigs, sets and props, materials, textures, animation, and renders. Although we will be extending the way that those assets are organized within each chapter, it’s important to begin with a good baseline and an understanding of how Blender locates and deals with them.

42 Storyboarding and the Story Reel If you have a physical wall full of storyboards, grab a yardstick, tell the story and begin to direct your audience’s attention to the relevant boards. If you are doing it digitally, you can show each image full screen with the slideshow feature of any number of applications such as IrfanView, iPhoto, or Google’s Picasa™. In either case, the point is to show someone who doesn’t already know the story the storyboards, while you narrate. This last point is critical because what you are looking for here is feedback on what the viewers misunderstood (or completely failed to understand), what they thought went on too long, whether your jokes worked, and if anything just plain didn’t make sense.

Do this by selecting New from the Image menu on the window header. The dialog that pops up gives you options for naming the new image and choosing a size. For now, set the Width to 800 and the Height to 600.
