Episodics: Traditional vs. Like a Feature

Hanna Lee Updated by Hanna Lee

When creating a new Episodic, you will be asked to select one of two production types: Traditional/Block or Like A Feature. Your selection will determine how your production is set up in SyncOnSet. The two options are compared in detail below.

Warning: It is not possible to switch your production type after your production has been created, so make your selection carefully!
Traditional/Block

Traditional/Block

Episodes 

Each Episode is its own unit, completely separate from other Episodes. However, you can view information for multiple episodes at one time. To switch episodes from the web app, click into the Episode Selector and select the Episodes you would like to view. 

My Productions  

On the My Productions page, each episode will exist as an option to click into. 

Type of Shooting

We recommend Traditional/Block for productions regular shooting or block shooting. 

Budgeting

Each episode will have a separate budget. Only one episode’s budget can be viewed at a time. 

Reports

To generate reports, you must only have one department and one episode selected.

Amort

You can create fake episodes for items such as Amort budgets. 


Like A Feature

Like a Feature 

Episodes 

All episodes are built into one larger entity. Episodes are separated by a numbering scheme where the episode number comes before the decimal and the scene number comes after (ex: 101.1, 101.2, etc). 

My Productions  

On your My Productions page, there will not be a separate link for each episode. Your entire production will exist in one link.

Type of Shooting

We recommend Like a Feature if you are cross-boarding (shooting multiple episodes at the same time).  

Budgeting

There is one budget for the entire season. 

Reports

Reports will include information from the whole season and cannot be separated by episodes.

Amort

Unavailable for Like a Feature.
