Milestones [Reply To All]

There are so many little milestones in the making of a film. After another day of work with the Reply To All editor and animator, we've finally got a rough cut that goes from the beginning right to the end. There is still a lot of work to take this rough cut to a polished final version, but for now this is our Golden Spike moment.
We've also replaced the scenes that Premier Pro decided to delete randomly. Everyone's a critic! And even in placeholder stills our family of animated co-stars are looking great.

 I've also completed a couple of other projects: my London Mechanism animation (a whim that became a minor obsession), plus a transformation scene that will appear soon in a promo video. I'll post more about that project soon. So there will be a short breather before our producer returns from Cannes and work continues on Reply To All.

Geez that would kill me if it deleted scenes from a movie I made.

I drove the editor mad asking for backups every 10 minutes... but then the missing scenes from the previous edit had also disappeared from all the auto saves. I believe this is what Microsoft used to refer to as an "undocumented feature."

However as a Blenderhead I regard random crashes, data loss and other undocumented features as part of the rich tapestry of life.
