So you're doing previs for a project, but the environment and props haven't been designed yet by the concept team. This lesson makes the argument that while your first instinct might be to use detailed stock models from a digital asset library, a better path may be to use much simpler models, to avoid confusion of what's been designed and what's just a temporary asset.

If you've ever done previs for film or television, have done greyboxing for videogames, or are a concept artist who shows 3d scenes to your client before refining the design, this set of observations may save you some time and pain in the future.
