    We find the 'old' documentation invaluable for sharing and training internally. The new docs simply aren't suitable (at least not yet). We miss the ability to: Link to specific sub-sections. Access the docs offline. Navigate left and right through a topic. Link to the specific release documentation (as we are often behind latest by a few versions). Link directly to API reference (via intersphinx) from our API reference and then maintain context in surrounding docs. Please bring back the 'old' docs or at least keep updating them alongside the new ones until you can support all these features in the new docs.

    ftrack_studio rez packages

    Hi all and Happy New Year ! With the experience built in the past years helping various offices setting up ftrack, I decided to wrap a rez repository where to collect all the needed bits and pieces to have ftrack_studio running as rez package. The repository can be accessed here http://git.efestolab.uk/rez/rez-ftrack for now while in development. (planning to move it later to bitbucket) The long time plan is to make this repo able to support all the needed platform and systems supported by ftrack , but at the moment I'm focusing mostly on linux. The installation is somehow tedious as the packages have to be installed in a certain order, I'm looking into a more automated system though, but is really not a priority. (check the readme to see the actual installation order) In order to make the default application work off the shelf , a custom package called ftrack_hook_override is provided, and original hooks are disabled. If you manage to install all, you can then run : $ rez-env ftrack_studio > $ ftrack_studio At the moment I'm matching the dependencies for the latest (2.7.3) version, and all the connector plugins are loaded by default (this might change later , to allow more dynamic settings). If you have any questions or issues please let me know ! L. P.s At the moment you need to have already available the basic packages such as qt, pyside and python installed as rez-packages. Please, bare in mind is currently in development, so things might be changing fast, and some packages might still be missing. If you think you can help , please do !

    Probably a big ask from a technical perspective but an incredibly useful feature in Review would be to wipe between two loaded versions in Ftrack Web Player. If wiping isn't possible, even a key press to quickly switch from version A to version B during playback would be helpful.

    2D/3D Asset Library

    Although not web based, one option I can think of would be : 1) have a project to act as library, 2) one action which allows to re migrate the assets to/from a given project . (could be a reworked version of this example: https://bitbucket.org/ftrack/ftrack-recipes/pull-requests/4) This could be extended to keep reference (as metadata or custom attribute) on where the asset originally comes from (as project when publishing back). 3) a pyside based browser (so can be used as widget in maya, nuke and any other qt based application) to act as library browser. Although requires some work, seems doable. L.

    Exporting Links

    Hi Ozen, hope you are well! It is possible to using a advanced query filter to filter on linked entities, below are a few examples, it is however a bit fiddly to update these query filters if you wish to iterate over a few different shots / asset builds, so it might be worth writing a tool using the api to export the information in bulk Using a Shot Query filter, show only shots that have a incoming link to a asset builds named "Monkey" incoming_links.from.name = 'Monkey' Using a Asset Build Query filter, display all asset builds used for a specific shot outgoing_links.to.name = 'SHOT_NAME' cheers Eric

    Time logging

    Hi Chris, It should be possible to use an event listener to automate starting a timer for a user when a task's status is set in progress. The reason that we don't do this automatically is that there can be several situations where you do not want the timer started automatically, and it is hard to know when this is. An event listener is a small python script that can be used to subscribe to changes in ftrack and perform custom logic such as updating a status, starting a external process or triggering a user interface. Here are some useful resources for setting up an event listener: * Developer hub with introduction to the API * How to subscribe with the API * Information about the update event * Example event listeners If you are not interested in logging time, but rather want to see how long a particular task has been in a certain state you can look at querying `Event` objects using the API. There is a snippet with some examples here. You probably want to query for action=change.status.task and parent_id=the task's id. Regards, Lucas

    Hey @Remus Avram Is this what you are looking for? https://forum.ftrack.com/topic/895-filter-by-component-name/

    We have asked for this also. It is essential to be able to track every change, especially in case bad data enters the system. With a proper audit model we would have a chance of getting back to a good state without losing data through a restore from older backup. Note that even the API does not provide sufficient granularity at present and still uses old data types making it harder to relate to actual data. We are also interested in there being a facility for giving the reason for a change - e.g. why the status was changed. A sort of special linked note / metadata attached to the change event.

    Hi @mark.fin , we have the same issue. What we need is a lock system for the Ftrack entities and attributes. Please have a look at this discussion http://forum.ftrack.com/index.php?/topic/788-lock-system-for-entity-attribute/ . Until this is implemented, we are using an Ftrack action which works pretty nice for us. How the action works: - it listen for all the events - ones an event match the conditions, we process it. Example: we allow production to create an asset and update the name as long as the status is not changed. Ones the status is changed, we mark it (set a key in metadata). If the production renames it now, the action detects that the asset is marked and rename it back to the previous name and let the user know why he/she can't do it.

    DJV Viewer

    I have recently updated the DJV View action to be more flexible in other pipelines; https://github.com/tokejepsen/ftrack-hooks/tree/master/djv_plugin You can now specify what files are available for the user to choose from.

    Download ftrack-connect-package 1.1.0 Windows Linux Osx What's new ? With this minor release, we have started a long journey for a complete revamp of connect and connector plugins. This release mostly focuses on moving the hard-coded connector plugins to standalone connect plugins, so these can be customized and extended by the users as they see fit. This release also includes an improvement for the Nuke Studio integration. Changes: ftrack-connect-nuke-studio 2.1.0 Tokens to compose assets names as well as components. Support for multi-track export. Fix Hiero template parser. ftrack-connect-maya 1.2.0 converted to connect plugin ftrack-connect-nuke 1.2.0 converted to plugin ftrack-connect-3dsmax 0.4.0 converted to plugin ftrack-connect-hieroplayer 1.3.0 converted to plugin ftrack-connect-foundry 1.2.0 remove ftrack-connect from dependency links Known issue None reported atm

    Hi Remus, We store an Event entity when some entities (e.g. Task, Note) are created. Examples of how to query these are available in this snippet. Currently, we do not track changes to AssetVersionLink and no create Event will be available. I've added a request to add this. Regards, Lucas

    Assigning user groups to objects

    Cool, thanks for your feedback Mattias. The more i think about this concept the more it makes sense for me and is super appealing. In a large project Producers or Lead artist don't necessarily need to assign all tasks to a specific user. The freedom of saying for example these are alle the 3D modelling tasks and i assign them to the 3D modelers group seems very nice. These tasks then appear under the 'available task' column in the my task view for everyone in this group and if a 3D modeler drags a task to another column 'in progress' for example it gets assigned to him/her directly and disappears from the 'available task column for everyone else. So they just work through the pile as they like.

    Afaik this is not documented. The ftrack-python-api hides this in convenience method and the user never has to understand this part, but for the javascript API things are more hands-on. I will raise this question with the team.

    Simplify team management

    Thank you. This was just a proposal how it could work. It can be done with multiple selection and a function like "add selected to group" as well....or when adding users to the group the list of users (that can be added) can be just contain the users added to the ungrouped team.

    I would also like to able to easily access this type of data. In an ideal world there would be a dashboard widget to display the status changes along with the date changed and this could be filtered to specific asset types. A stacked bar graph would be a bonus! This information is massively useful for production staff to assess where there are time issues on turnaround of notes and reviews, in particular from clients

    @Remus Avram: Thank you Remus, we ended up following your breadcrumb and creating a dedicated API user to filter through the events. Works like a charm, but quite disappointing that it requires a license. Thanks again for the offer to help. It's much appreciated. Cheers, G

    Ok, so the issue was with these lines: shot["custom_attributes"] = shot_data["custom_attributes"] shot["metadata"] = shot_data["metadata"] which doesn't work anymore, at least with ftrack 3.5.9 and API version 1.0.4. All credits to Eric Hermelin from ftrack support for figuring it out and providing the solution: for key, value in shot_data["custom_attributes"].items(): shot['custom_attributes'][key] = value for key, value in shot_data["metadata"].items(): shot['metadata'][key] = value Everything is working fine again now. Thanks Eric and Matthias for resolving this quickly!

    Hi, We have just released a new version of ftrack-connect 0.6.2 (https://www.ftrack.com/portfolio/connect). This is a major release as all ftrack connect plugins have been updated to no longer use our legacy API and instead use the new API. This change will improve performance across the board, as well as lead to a quicker development cycle. In addition, we are including our new Beta plugins for Maya and Nuke built around the open source project, Pyblish (http://ftrack-connect-documentation.rtd.ftrack.com/en/0.1.12/). Backwards compatibility with the old location plugins and actions are achieved through the ftrack-location-compatibility plugin (https://bitbucket.org/ftrack/ftrack-location-compatibility). While old locations and actions will continue to function, we highly recommend that you start looking at migrating your plugins and locations, please have a look at the migration documentation for more information (http://ftrack-connect.rtd.ftrack.com/en/latest/release/migration.html) For more information on what has changed please refer to each updated package: ftrack connect 1.0.1 ftrack connect cinema 4d 0.1.3 ftrack connect hieroplayer 1.1.5 ftrack connect legacy plugins 1.0.0 ftrack connect maya 1.0.0 ftrack connect nuke 1.0.1 ftrack connect nuke studio 1.0.0 ftrack connect rv 3.6 ftrack python legacy api 3.6.0 We hope you enjoy the release. Please let us know if you have any questions or feedback. cheers Eric

    is query by link possible

    Hi Pawel, thank your for posting and welcome to the forums. There are a ways to achieve what you want in a faster way that just requires one query. # Going through the parent hierarchy. session.query('Shot where name is "sh010" and parent.name is "seq1" and project.name is "test_project"').first() Another one would using the ancestor relation, which could be more powerful if you have a more complicated nesting of the project structure where the exact order of the objects is unknown: session.query('Shot where project.name is "test_project" and ancestors any (name is "seq1" and object_type.name is "Sequence")').first() For readability I would recommend #1.

    Hi Remus, I would imagine that the user has removed parts of his gnome panels, in particular the applet for tray icons. You could probably add it back manually by right clicking the panel and selecting "Add to panel" and then making sure the panel configuration matches one of your working users , I can sadly not replicate it here as I do not have access to a system with gnome 2. As an alternative you could reset the users gnome panel configuration completely , I believe that can be done by deleting ~/.gconf/apps/panel and all its sub files and folders and then logging in and out, that should force gnome to regenerate the default configuration. cheers Eric

    client review custom emails

    Hi guys. It would be a big plus if we could make a our own custom layout for the emails that are send when you send the invites. Most of the times my clients think it's some sort of spam and don't even bother to look at it. Just adding our own logo and a custom text would be helpful. But even better off-course is a custom html form what we could change in the settings. Cheers Robert

    AssetBuild Custom Attributes

    Thanks for following up. For future reference, the server version 3.5 requires ftrack-python-api 1.0.4 or higher. Version 1.0.3 will be unable to use custom attributes properly (what ionav experienced) and versions prior to 1.0.3 will fail to initialise the session with a ServerCompatibilityError. For more information, see the migration notes. We are still polishing a few things before we will start to roll out ftrack 3.5 to hosted sites and will be in contact before then.

    Nuke Publish error new API

    On top of my mind; does the write node that you try to make a reviewable from have an input? The publisher uses the first input of the write node to generate the web reviewable. If that is not the issue, could you click "Open log directory" and send the ftrack_connect_pipeline.log file to support@ftrack.com and have this forum thread as reference.

    Houdini plugin

    Hi guys, We use Ftrack in studio and love it, but our main package is Houdini. Now we use a very simple integration with Houdini software without assetManagment and I need a standard plugin integration as Maya and Nuke has. I'm not a professional programmer, but have some TD experience with main VFX programs. I start my own Houdini integration as branch of ftrack nuke and maya plugin. For now it has basic functionality and can publish and import limited data, but I'm working on it. Installing and developing simply the same as ftrack team maya and nuke open source packages. It open for everyone and if somebody want to help, please welcome! If Ftrack Team have some throats, or even working prototype, it will be cool to be a part. Repository: https://bitbucket.org/postmodern_dev/ftrack-connect-houdini Help: http://ftrack-connect-houdini.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ P.s. I hope, I don't violate any rights. Thanks!
