    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.

    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.

    Upgrading MariaDB to use JSON

    Yes, we plan to upgrade to MariaDB 10.X but I do not have any dates on this yet. The JSON functionality is interesting and something to consider

    Time Zone Support

    Being part of a company that has users in multiple time zones it would be very convenient to be able to specify a time zone for any date/time field.

    Notification filtering

    Hi all, Now that we're setting supervisors as managers on more and more projects, I've been asked if it's possible to filter the types of tasks supervisors receive notifications about. For instance, an integration supervisor is receiving notifications about all tasks and publishes, and would benefit from the ability to be able to choose to receive only notifications regarding tracking and matchmove (and anything else he might select). Is this on your roadmap or something you'd consider investigating? Thanks as always, Kat

    Hi, When having lots of assignees on a task the following variable in mysql will cause problems in the Tasks spreadsheet: https://mariadb.com/kb/en/library/server-system-variables/#group_concat_max_len From MariaDB 10.2.4 the default value has changed and will no longer result in this problem. If you are facing this issue now you can change the setting to be 1M. Updating this variable will solve the problems in the tasks spreadsheet but there is no guarantee other places in the UI will not suffer from other presentational issues when having a large number of assignees on a single task. /Johan

    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

    No updates as of now - as an additional workaround, have you looked into writing a message (note without parent) to the user? This should trigger a notification note = session.create('Note', { 'content': 'hey', 'user_id': author_user_id}) sesssion.create('Recipient', { 'note_id': note['id'], 'resource_id': target_user_id }) session.commit()

    Ftrack local installation

    Hi, regarding this page http://ftrack.rtd.ftrack.com/en/backlog-scaling-ftrack-documentation-story/administering/managing_local_installation/server_requirements.html Ftrack runs well on Centos 6. Are also later versions of Centos supported? Thanks

    Hi Remus, Correct, right now there is now export on that report. But your suggestions have been noted, so let's see if either a choice for report will be added. or maybe the filter solution mentioned initially. /Johan

    Hey there ftrack, me again. So I love this upcoming dates pane in the task board but I there are a few minor UI improvements I think would make it even better. 1) If the date listed has passed, it would be nice to color the date RED. If its within days of the date maybe it goes orange - Might even be cool to have a divider showing where TODAY lands 2) Dates seem to take a while to fall off this list, is it like 2 weeks? Would be nice to customize this. (the attachment posted was taken Sept 17, and theres still Sept 11 date on there) 3) The "show more" button at the bottom seems unneccesary. I feel like I always have to press it because by default I only get 5 dates which doesnt even begin to take up enough real estate anyway. I think you should just have them all show up. If theres a lot maybe you have a button on the bottom that instead says "TODAY" and scrolls you back centered on today.

    2D/3D Asset Library

    Hey ftrack, It would be really awesome to have an asset/element library for 2D and 3D assets built right in to ftrack. Seems like the underlying structure for this could borrow a lot from how projects already work and with the new workflows feature, it seems totally possible for a user like myself to use the project structure to cobble something like this together. BUT, I think if it were implemented as a separate feature, theres so much you guys could do with the interface. I imagine that there would be a unique link for it in the main navigation bar right next to "My Tasks" so that everyone on ftrack would have access to it. The interface would allow you to filter and naviagte thru different categories of 2D elements (smoke, fire, muzzle flashes, etc) or 3D assets (props, vehicles, charactes, etc). Each one could either have a thumbnail or a small quicktime that would play when you hover over it ( like www.shutterstock.com/video/search?query=green+screen for example). Futhermore, would be great to then build some intergration into nuke/maya so that you could download/import assets from thier location right into your script/scene. -ak

    Py3K early access

    Please note, the current development status is in Beta stage and is not suitable for production. Welcome to the ftrack-python-api tech preview for python 3.x compatibilty. Here are some brief instructions on how to start testing the upcoming release of the new API. We strongly recommend sandboxing the testing environment using virtualenv. Prepare your sandbox Create a virtualenv with the Python 3 interpreter: $ virtualenv -p `which python3.6` ~/ftrack_python_api_py3k Activate virtualenv: $ source ~/ftrack_python_api_py3k/bin/activate Install Install from the development branch: $ pip install git+https://bitbucket.org/ftrack/ftrack-python-api.git@backlog/ftrack-python-api-compatibility-with-python-3 Test Run python from virtualenv and check that everything is in place: (ftrack_python_api_py3k) $ python -V (ftrack_python_api_py3k) $ Python 3.6.5 You can now start the Python interpreter and start using the API as usual. >>> from ftrack_api import Session >>> session = Session() >>> projects = session.query('Project').all() >>> print(projects) If you need to use the Python3 and the ftrack module just run Python directly from the virtualenv using: $ ~/ftrack_python_api_py3k/bin/python3 -c "import ftrack_api;print(ftrack_api.__version__)" Bug reporting Please use this thread to report issues and bugs. When reporting bugs, please remember to include: * Operating system in use. * Python version in use (use: python -V). * Full stack trace or error.

    ftrack Browser tabs

    Repost As a manager I often have multiple tabs of ftrack open on my computer, but the tabs all say "ftrack". Do you know if it would be possible to have the *active project* listed on the tab?

    It would be nice to be able to choose an assignee for a shot. Having full task breakdown assignments are great, but a lot of times I have a need to assign a full shot (all tasks included) to one person. Viewing that assignee when the hierarchy view is in collapsed view would be nice as well.

    Hi Remus, Thank you for your question. This is not possible currently. I believe this is due to that the Assignee field is a multi-value field (that you can have multiple assignees). There is a feature request ticket however on this so will add you to it. Thanks, Mattias

    Hey, I wanted to complete this thread, to halp anyone, who might stumble into this... To make sure ftrack understands files with different filenames AND different versions, we ended up manually naming the associated asset and omit the part where the files differ! example: if we want to publish a file called "my_awsome_file_v001.jpg" and "my_awsome_file_v002.jpg", the created asset gets the name "my_awsome_file". So both files are linked to this asset, which make ftrack understand, that these are both just different versions of the 'same' file. Thanks for your help Tim

    Hi Remus, not at the moment - if they have access to the components tab they can delete them. I think it makes sense to have this as a permission (and more granular in general) and will raise this as a feature request with the team.

    This is a known "issue" and not designed. We're considering changing this in the future to limit creation of new components with duplicate names.

    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.

    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 !

    Hi, I'm trying to figure out a query to retrieve all or selected custom_attributes in a query. I have some custom attributes on a project and my session has autopopulating turned OFF. project = session.query('select custom_attributes from Project where name is "{0}"'.format(name)).one() if I try to access my custom attribute "foo" the value of it is not set print project['custom_attributes']['foo'] > NOT_SET I tried to pass the attribute name directly to the query but that in key error project = session.query('select custom_attributes.foo from Project where name is "{0}"'.format(name, key)).one() > ServerError: Server reported error: KeyError(u"No attribute u'foo' exists for schema u'CustomAttributeValue'.") is it possible to fetch custom attributes in the main query?

    Including my answer to sati here as well for future reference: "Missing playable component" means that the version does not contain a component with the required metadata to mark it as a reviewable component. For local installations, we try to encode videos to a web playable format, but do not support encoding images at this point. To make the images viewable you can do one of the following: Publish versions that fulfills the requirement via the API: Publishing for web review Run an event listener which automatically updates images to be reviewable: Image 'encoder' for local installations.
