Are your Fusion nodes messier than your desk?
If you’re working quickly it can be easy to make a crazy noodle nightmare with connections. And when you open up the project again, you might not remember what you did last time.
So it’s a good idea to stay organized. It might take a little time to set up, but once you’ve found what works your comp work will feel faster and less stressful.
