A fundamental functionality of Snowtrack are Tracks. In version control terms, also known as Branches.
Tracks are a powerful tool to explore design ideas without cluttering your project directory. Imagine you're creating a logo for a customer and they want to see the logo from last week in a different color. Simply restore the corresponding version and change the logo in your project directory. Snowtrack will then automatically create a new track that branches off the current version.
How to create a Track
In regular version control software you can create branches/tracks manually.
In Snowtrack Tracks are created automatically when needed. Check out the following 3-step scenario how this automation works.
As you can see in the image on the left, the project directory is currently in sync with
Final camera + render and no unchanged files are present.
We restore the older version called
added UV textures.
Any changes, e.g. a new or modified file, in the project directory will be detected by Snowtrack and will lead to a new Track.
