    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

    Attach file in new note

    There is an article here on how to attach file to a note in the ftrack-python-api: http://ftrack-python-api.rtd.ftrack.com/en/stable/example/note.html#attachments

    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.

    ftrack Browser tabs

    Hey Erik, this is something that we're considering for the future. It could very useful if you have a lot of tabs open for different projects.

    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()

    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

    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

    You can meet the ftrack team in Barcelona on November 30 (Friday) and December 1 (Saturday) for b'Ars. We'll be available for demos and to answer your questions all day at a dedicated stand. We'll also have ftrack users Twin Pines presenting to share how they use ftrack for Episodic TV and Films. For more information and to schedule a meeting with the ftrack team: https://www.ftrack.com/en/2018/10/ftrack-bars-barcelona-2018.html

    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?

    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, after an update of the forum earlier in the week we're in the process of rebuilding the search cache, which might effect this as well. Give it a few days and see if it gets better. Cheers, Fredrik

    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.

    We have ideas on similar expressions in the API. All new features and widgets that we build are based on the API so eventually we will need this kind of functionality in the API.

    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 !

    The issue with update events on hierarchical custom attributes should be fixed in an upcoming maintenance release (scheduled for 3.5.25)

    Hi Tim, Sorry for the confusion on this - you're correct, the id is wrong when accessed from the sidebar. To work around this you can do the following: if '_' in entityId realId, junk = entityId.split('_') As for the entityType - this is old style entity type from the backend. Instead of using 'task' you would want to use 'TypedContext' on the session: session.get('TypedContext', realId)

    Hi all! This returns me all available version: task = session.get('Context', 'some-id') versions = session.query('AssetVersion where task_id is "{0}"'.format(task['id'])).all() I need to get only the latest versions. Is it possible?

    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, 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.
