Just a quick note... I've been going really nuts all day trying to organise all of my work. Everything is on different computers, after effects had lost heaps of files etc... SOOOo Alex made me organise everything onto my external hard drive.
I have a Film folder with folders for "frames" containing all my footage, "after effects composites" containing all my compositions (which I had to relink to all of the footage!!), "test renders", "final renders", and "music. This so far is working very well! as I can move from computer to computer without having to transfer my stuff everywhere and it doesnt matter if my computer has been taken! Genius!!
