Just lost 3 days work.Forgot that on Thursday I loaded up from an Autobackup at some point, and just forgot about it and carried on working, hitting the 'save' button at the end of the day.Yesterday, started a new scene in the same project - totally forgetting that the main file I was working on was an Autobackup file and is still in the Autobak folder....You know what happens next. The rest is history. GO FUCK YOURSELF, ME.Sorry, I just needed to vent.
wouldn't happen with Blender>>565218
>>565218happen to me all the time with max... life is hard when your dumb
>>565218Happens to me too, every single day. I mean, I don't lose much work, but it still crashes all the time. I can't tell if it's my PC (GTX960, i5 6500), but it shouldn't be. Same scenes in Blender are smooth and never crash.The worst thing is that I have a craving for Blender, but if I ever want to work in this industry, I'll have to stick with Max.
>>565242This is the only time this has happened to me. And it 100% my fault, I accept that.If, as you say, this happens to you 'all the time' - there is something deeply wrong with you.
>>565218>not autistically increment+saving every 30 minutesbackup your stuff, and then make backups of those backups.it feels autistic, but at least you won't ever end up losing 3 days of work.
>>565338>>not autistically increment+saving every 30 minutesi increment save whenever i make a meaningful change that i can't easily undo. i also give it a name referring to whatever i did so i can potentially go back later and know what it is i'm actually opening
>>565218to be fair in big projects 3 days is nothing
