And then, I decide to play a game of league of legends and then FUCKing my computer freezes.
"Soulslayerzx" said ...Seriously, if you set up a model, textures and 60+ flexes without making a single backup of your file, you're doing it wrong. Software, especially 3d modelling software, crashes all the time and as a 3d artist, you should take precautions.
as the long backups it automatically does has corrupted data and only saves like half of it.
"Soulslayerzx" said ...Maybe vent it on twitter in 140 characters or less and move on. Moping around and flipping tables won't bring your files back. I also wouldn't go around looking for sympathy, because I know that most of the times, when shit gets truly fucked up, I could have done something to prevent it.
What do you guys do if technical difficulties impairs your process of animating,modeling? I'm so fucking angry right now. :x
"Soulslayerzx" said ...Have a few drinks? Seriously, though, I've been burnt more than once by such situations and have become a bit paranoid as a result. I rarely lose more than a few minutes of work these days even when faced with catastrophic circumstances (hard drive failure, e.g.) I have Blender set up to retain the last 30 copies of any file and I make it a habit to save frequently. I also decreased the auto-save time to 3 minutes from the default 5, and I have incremental system backups running to local drives (updating every 15 minutes) and offsite using BackBlaze ($5 a month unlimited offsite backup of one computer). For today, I suggest doing something that doesn't involve the computer, and then tomorrow or the next day, do some disaster prep so it won't happen again.
