  1. I think I see something which might work..perhaps in the action method I use python to update the environment variables. I assume for each project I can make a unique set of Action based program Launchers and this is how I can ensure each show gets the right version of software. When we install software we remove any environment info which is global...keeps computers nice and clean and avoids crud from multiple installs interfering with each other...then we use application launchers to add in the needed environment variables before executing the program.
  2. Hello all, My goal is to launch programs such as windows shell, Maya & Nuke, etc, from the ftrack UI and also feed custom environment variables to the shell before the application is launched. For example, I know project A requires Nuke 8.0 and Ocula 1.0 and project B requires Nuke 9.0 & Ocula 2.0 . I'm hoping to make/update a UI in ftrack which would have a Nuke icon and if the user double clicks the Nuke icon, the correct version of Nuke and plug-in are found via the environment variables. I can do this with other web based production tracking software and via a command line/Gui based system I maintained at a previous job site. This is the first time I've used ftrack so apologies if this is an obvious topic. Thanks for any tips. Adam Chrystie Pipeline Software Engineer
