Editing/compositing pipeline - hardware/workflow question
In our company i always was the one responsible video/3D/compositing/motiongraphics works. Solely. As a generalist my workflow was quite simple. I could switch tasks on a whim so my workflow could be what ever i needed it to be.
Now, with the projects getting bigger and bigger. And me getting more colleagues to work with me i re-thought the whole workflow. I tried a few things and, as allways, every option had it's pro's and con's.
The best workflow i found to work in was to have the whole project on a server and edit from there. Output dynamic linked comps on the same location and have the compositors work there. (we're using Adobe's ultimate collections and some extra software, btw). This way the edit was updated instantaneously when a composite was changed.
The biggest downside to this was speed. It didn't have speed. Our network is a Cat6 gigabit network (could be 10gigabit network with updated/costly network switches and cards).
What is the hardware setup you guys have. And what is your workflow in this respect.
Also what are your opinions on linked comps when you have a bigger compositing team. Is this even a viable option. Because you would need to output linked comps to different AE files instead of, when you work alone, to 1 AE file.
I'm curious to what you guys do.
