View Full Version : Naming conventions: what systems do you use?

Does anybody have nifty convenient naming conventions they use to organize their Scene Editor?

For example, when I remember, I emulate some guru here whose practice was to start all NULL names with an asterisk ("*"). This makes them stand out a bit from the ruck of objects. (Of course, colors would work too.)

I use + cuz it's bigger and centers between the height better.

Also if you have any scripts or tools that are dependent on a specific name structure that'll dictate your convention.

"+" - good idea!

I make all my nulls red, works for me :thumbsup:

I name all my construction models with the suffix "const" which differentiates them from finished models. (this doesn't always work out though).

For arch viz items I've altered to my own tastes, I tend to use a really obvious product category in capitals at the start, such as CHAIR_Recliner_A_v001 - makes scanning older projects easier for items.
