While backing up my VITRVVIVS files I reflected on my Sony Vegas file naming convention. The file names are listed below to illustrate the incremental numbering for each session so I can rollback if something goes wrong:
What this means is, with the date modified system info as well as my file naming convention, I can tell approiximately how many “editing sessions” I did for VITRVVIVS. And the grand total is…
42 sessions in 17 days
That makes sense when I think about it since I would probably start a session early one day, save it with the new number, then at the end of the day save the changes with the next sequential number. The time period was from July through September 2008 spread out over evenings and weekends.
I then checked my After Effects files which use the same convention VIT-EDIT-FX-SHOTS-##.aep
And the result is…
20 After Effects sessions in 13 days
So, post-production took approximately 2 weeks of After Effects color correction, color grading, composting, and effects and about 2 weeks of final editing and sound mixing in Sony Vegas…spread out over 3 or 4 months.
