Work involving physical or digital organization methods.
As an OCD individual, whose main role at The Molecule was to manage the pipeline, I can tell you that nothing is every perfectly clean and organized. This is especially relevant to digital files that are being shared collaboratively with an entire company.
Organizing, renaming, and cleaning up The Molecule's video assets was a personal focus of mine. However, when we built the Asset Browser, it eliminated the need, as it no longer mattered how files were organized when a user can search the entire breadth of the collection in one query. Their folder structure will be even more insignificant once we implement valuable tags that describe the content, instead of ambiguous/poor folder and file names.
Regardless, here is the naming scheme we've employed for all new assets that we ingest into our library:
Folder name is restricted to: one noun or one adjective
Folder containing image sequence: Given two text names from the previous two parent folders, followed by a number
Image Sequence Name: reflects parent folder name exactly, followed by frame number
A simple example of a file named using this scheme
