    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.

    We've been waiting on this for a while now. Do you have an expected date of when this will happen?

    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

    Good points Yas, and yeah i'm finding that i am needing to control the version numbers at times, at least now i've got the version up happening on the end of Ftrack. I like your explanation of first() and one() as well, i'm still brute forcing my way thought some things as i get a larger overview. On the asset_version - that's a leftover from a test i was doing, forgot to delete it lol.

    Fails to encode media

    Hi @John Su, For what I can see it seems you don't have installed ffmpeg on the server, can you please double check ? On this subject you can find more information on our documentation: https://help.ftrack.com/en/articles/1040538-installing-ffmpeg-and-ffprobe Hope it helps! L.

    Component path shows up red

    Hi @John Su, sure you can ! just extract the given script (or download it directly from here ) and drop it in a folder mapped in a FTRACK_EVENT_PLUGIN_PATH environment variable. When the session start will look into that variable to see if there's any plugin to be discovered and run. I'd suggest having one folder on a shared server folder mapped so you can simply drop events in there. Hope it helps. If you need any further help just let us know ! L.

    Component path shows up red

    Hi @John Su, the path is resolved through an event available in ftrack_connect itself and called resolve.py If the path is red is possible that your structure cannot be properly initialised and hence not be resolved. You can try adding more logs into the resolve.py and see if anything is off. Please send us , either here or through support (depending on how sensible the information are) and we'll look further into it. Hope it helps. Cheers. L.

    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

    Default asset

    Hi, You could use something like this to find out whether a Maya file had ever been published for a given task. If not, this will raise a NoResultFoundError, so maybe you want to use all() and check the length instead. components = session.query('Component where version.task_id is "{0}" and file_type in' '(".ma", ".mb")'.format( task_id)).one() If you already have a Maya file on disk, you could publish with just the Python API: http://ftrack.rtd.ftrack.com/en/3.3.7/developing/reviewing/publish_components_for_review.html And maybe you want to modify ftrack_connect_maya_hook.py so that the publish happens before Maya even starts. Otherwise you could modify userSetup.py to load your default file and optionally publish it to the current Task. /Johan

    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

    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 compatibility. 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

    Archive projects

    exactly, for backup on LTO drive. yes, we want to remove it then, because of the number of projects we have. in the same way, it would be nice to have the other way, a restore function. So to get the Project back into the database.

    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 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.
  46. 1 point
    If there was a way for the event to return the hostname or ip of the browser from which an action is called you could at least verify on which machine the action is called. This doesn't solve the multiple instances on one machine issue, but for users logged in on multiple workstations you could at least filter out your custom hooks so only those available on that machine are discovered.

    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?

    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.

    Set home/start page after login

    Its possible set different start page to show after login? For example Project Manager instead MyTasks I think start page as MyTasks is good scenario for an artist, but person with other rol, like a project manager person perhaps he wants start with other page.
