I am preparing a complex animation sequence with many many moving parts and effects. As the assembly grows, the timeline is stacking up into an impenetrable maze. Synchronizing actions is extremely tedious - bordering on impossible. I can share the project with you by secure link if you care to venture into the mares’ nest.
I am sure Cinema has solved this problem beautifully (as it always does). If you could summarize for me the Maxon strategy and identify the path for training, I will happily follow it.
Secondly, in my experience, large complex animations are not generally built in one project. Breaking it into blocks of action so the timeline is not 250 lines deep seems a better approach. But I can see how that could multiply the opportunities to screw up. If you have guidance on that aspect, I will gratefully embrace it.
