View Full Version : Is a named VFX shot just one angle or multiple?

I'm about to work with a VFX artist for the time and am just wondering how to prepare the shots. I've been looking into naming conventions and think I have a handle on that. But when I want to name a shot, is the shot defined as just the one angle or multiple angles over a sequence/scene?

Also is there a standard practice for how an editor maintains the position of where the VFX shot sits in the timeline, considering it's been given a name that doesn't match the original source footage? Is it as simple as burning in the timecode (and maybe the orig file name)?
