Keep Your Previs Models Simple

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.
