Transformers and Git

Published on May 30, 2009 by Jesse Storimer

Today, I was watching some of the Special Features from the live-action Transformers movie, very interesting stuff.

I noticed that whenever they would show clips from the movie there would be some text at the bottom of the screen, always a timestamp followed by a string of text.

Here is one such message: “additional paint and suppression sweetening…”

Looks like a version control system to me, and looks like those animators have the same problem as I do, trying to come up with good commit messages.
