  1. Hi, We've been using Ftrack for a long time now. Did around 800+ projects using it. There is one thing that would make my scheduling a lot easier is the ability for the task not only to have START and END date, but also breaks in the timeline. It is quite often that I have 3 weeks in my schedule for compositing certain shot or scene. So I setup my "start" and "end" date. Knowing the actual time needed to do it is shorter I also place an amount of budgeted days. I would love to have an ability to put gaps in the task so the system would allow me / or at least warn me if I make the gap to bi
  2. HI, Is there a way to give standard users access to Overview panel, but just on read-only level ? I want the managers to have ability to change and move tasks, but not standard user.
  3. Get me on the action - pawel@televisor.pl, thanks
  4. #bump Is there any way of doing a multiple delete without going through API ?
  5. HI, I have to say that I'm struggling a lot with implementing use of review option inside our studio for Supervisors and for clients as well. Let me first explain a bit how we work at our studio so you get better understanding of my problems. 90% of our workload is TVC. Timeframe for such projects range from 2 days to 3 months, but usually it is around a week to 10 days. Depending on the complexity I divide a commercial on shot and add tasks to those shots. If the project is very simple and done by 1 or 2 people, I usually just add tasks like Compositing, 3d to the root of th
  6. Thanks Mattias - that solved one problem. Kinda got formatting problems - can I change font size somehow ?
  7. Thanks mate, that helps with few of my problems Now I have to figure all that out - we never used any scripting with ftrack.
  8. HI, I've got a problem with some logical usage of ftrack in commercial workflow. Maybe you guys can help me out with that. I cant find a way to do that. Since we do mostly tv commercials - the lifespan of a project is from 3 days to 2-3 months. Sometimes there is just 1 artist needed, other bigger projects require 10+ users. So in easy project I do not divide 1 commercial into more than 1 task - for example ONLINE/COMPOSITING. That is easy to manage, even if we got 2-3 edits in one project I go very small hierarchy. Then when part of the work is finished they guy uploads a video for re
  9. Hi, I was soo hyped about client review, and the update came in the perfect time - we are doing a big set of commercials for Sydney based agency, when we are in Poland, and the director is currently in NYC, so I have to read and compare notes from different places and put into ftrack. I've created basic Client review for testing - send out invitation to my studio staff to check how things work. Everything worked good on my macbook with chrome. The problems started with Safari and Firefox also on Macs. First of all with upgraded system on Safari there was no annotation tools available, and
  10. Hi, Quite often I have a problem when it comes to review things. Most of my job advert post. So I have 10-30 shots per Sequence. I set up all the people to different tasks, they finish their work and all usually goes to 1 comp station to get everything in 1 sequence. So the final output is 1 qucktime for review, All previous stages are pure DPX sequences. Now here comes the problem for me. Since I'ts easier and a lot faster we never create 1 quicktime per shot, some people doing the job don't even have the tools to do that. So I upload 1 long QT and review it - the problem is that the notes a
  11. First of I cant want to get my hands on new Ftrack version with client side review - finally KUDOS to you guys. This is so important. I'm counting hours on upgrades on my server. Now to a point. Are there any plans to implement any kind of multiple project functionality. Since there are 5 to 10 projects at the same time in my studio I have to take under consideration what is going on in them in order to use my resources the best I can. For example Schedule Task view with dates on more than one project. It would be great to have a option to go 1 step higher in hierarchy from a project to s
  12. I have to say that I love planning view. It helps me control the mayhem in the studio There are few things that I would love to see in future upgrades. All of them have one thing in common. Ability to look at the bigger picture outside 1 project idea. Since I do around 5-10 TVC a month I need to mix/match people and use them as much as I can on many projects at the same time. - Option to share the view with normal users without option to change. - Ability to book time more precisely with better visual interpretation. Right now if I don't book for entire day it is hard to see that the
  13. Hi, Mattias I'm afraid that is the case - project set to 'hidden' wont change the visibility of the task in that project. I will check it with support. thanks, Pawel
  14. Hi, I am trying to incorporate ftrack more and more into my postproduction studio. We have it for more than a year, yet we are still using very basic functionality. Few thing got me curious. When guys finish the job, project manager verifies the task as "completed", it lands on DONE part of "My Task" view for each user. After the project is finished I usually change the status of the project from "ACTIVE" to "Hidden". We are doing around 70-100 projects a year so it can get crowded on project task bar etc. This does not remove task from that project from "MY TASK" view - they are still
