Pipeline folder structure framework

Every pipeline project is made of Branches.

Each branch contains a hierarchy of folders and components.

Components contain the maya files:

  1. component master file
  2. component version files
  3. archived files
  4. component master Playblast
  5. archived playblast files

The pipeline framework is designed to handle most of the common CGI workflows,... from small commercial, to short film, to tv series.


Every pipeline project is essentially a maya project.
pipeline will use json files to map the projects directory structure.


  • Do not to alter the directory structure of a pipeline project manually.
  • Do not delete any json file from the project directories.
  • Doing so will result in pipeline unable to read the project.
