  1. I did some googling and end up here. Sorry for bumping this two years old thread up. It's an essential feature request we need to keep names under control as we just cannot count on the human hands to be typing correct names all the time. For now we are going to use the solution @Eric Hermelin provided(thanks) but as @keyframe said considering the UX it would be nicer to have a better solution.
  2. Thanks. I don't think it's mentioned anywhere in the document though.
  3. Hello, any one has any clue?

    Querying custom attributes

    Thanks Julian! It works now.
  5. Hi, I'm trying to filter assetversion using custom attribute, but got an error: As you can see when I inspect the custom_attributes of a version object it did show me the "downstream" attribute is there. Did I miss something? Also, how to compare a bool value? Am I using it right? Cheers, John
  6. Hi, Johan, for now we are going to use filter + shot view. Thank you.
  7. Hi there, When I tried to generate a reviewable video using version.encode_media('d:/beauty/ [1001-1003]') I got an exception: File "V:\TD\thirdparty_packages\ftrack_api\", line 2288, in encode_media result =[operation]) File "V:\TD\thirdparty_packages\ftrack_api\", line 1654, in call raise ftrack_api.exceptipn.ServerError(error_message) ServerError: Server reported error: AttributeError('NoneType' object has no attribute 'filetype') If I call it using one frame it works. i.e version.encode_media('d:/beauty/') # good I also tried using ftrack-connect, it uploaded without problem but didn't generate the reviewable component. And I didn't manage to find any relevant log from ftrack log files. By the way it works fine with .mov file. Any thoughts? Thanks. John
  8. Hi Johan, for now a filter would do a similar job, but still not as perfect as a customizable "Group by". What I'm trying to achieve is like a "hierarchy" look but without actually parenting shots to "Episode" objects. By this way we can utilise the StandardStructure while getting rid of episode folder (due to the potentially frequent changes of episode attribute, we don't want to bind a shot to an episode regarding file system). Thanks.
  9. Hello, In spreadsheet, is there any chance I can group entities by custom attributes other than predefined ones?(For now it only has Assignee, Priority, Status, Type). So I can group shots by episodes instead of putting them under each episode objects. Cheers, John
  10. Hello, Any chance I can get rid of this icon(in red circle)? As we don't want to provide any alternative ways to publish files other than our own inhouse publish tools. Thanks. John
  11. Update: The report is being generated perfectly after changing the font to a proper font rather than leaving it as default.
  12. Yes I have. Glad to hear that. It really matters and makes sense because it allows us to map arbitrary data into a ftrack in what ever way we like and get the summary/average. Cheers.

    Component path shows up red

    It works now. I think part of the reason this thread becomes so lengthy is I didn't realize I need to have an event handler running by myself to supersede connect, so I kept asking how ftrack python api gets called. Thanks Steve and of cause Lorenzo!
