Anchorpoint at Verso
How Verso Studio creates stunning motion graphics for renowned brands while managing their production data in Anchorpoint.
Verso is a design and animation studio driven by the research of new aesthetics and the power of collaboration. They use still and moving 3D imagery to provide visual experiences for brands such as Aston Martin, Adidas, Bershka or Yeti.
It was founded by Diego Gastelut, Nicolás Basílico Miara and Javier García Munuera, who we are talking to right now.
Javi, could you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I'm a motion designer and director at Verso, mainly on the technical side of things. I'm always looking for ways to improve our workflow within the software we use and the pipeline in general. I'm now starting to get more involved in programming, so I'm really looking forward to exploring the possibilities that Anchorpoint offers in terms of custom tools.
Tell us about the pipeline at Verso
We use Cinema 4D as our main tool, along with Houdini and the Adobe suite. We also rely heavily on Notion for management, not only of projects but also finances, freelancers, clients, etc.
When it comes to sharing files, we mainly use Dropbox to synchronize all our work within the team, but also Google Drive for other documents.
We like to work locally in our office in Madrid, but we also work with remote freelancers, so we need communication and file management to be as smooth as possible.
When did you start using Anchorpoint?
We started using Anchorpoint 2 months ago.
Was it easy to get started?
Simple and intuitive. We shared the tool between our 3 members and the experience was almost seamless. It works on macOS and Windows!
What problems does Anchorpoint solve for you?
- Share files with links across the team. Faster search and access.
- The ability to convert sequences to .mp4. Working on 3D renderings, this feature is key to our workflow.
- Detailed annotations with time code on videos. Nice and accurate feedback within the team.
- Easily preview different image, video and sound formats.
- Having different sets of favorite folders for each project.
- Smooth navigation through folders.
Which features do you use the most?
The links for files directly from any directory is the big star for us. We work with Dropbox, Google Drive and Local and the ability to share directly with everyone is great. Sometimes the routes can be a bit messy, especially when computers have different operating systems or different drive names.
This feature is also very handy when managing projects in Notion, as we can use these links to navigate directly to a folder from our Notion structure.
Of course, the sequence conversion tools are also a must in the daily workflow for checking renders.
How did you hear about us?
I followed you on Twitter for a long time before start using Anchorpoint.
Would you recommend Anchorpoint to your friends?
Yes, specially for teams with a huge amount of files to manage.
Thank you so much Javier for taking the time. Learn more about Verso
