  1. Bump please. This process is such a time waster in my day. I'd love an address book or at least ftrack to remember the clients that I've already put in for that job so I can just choose them again.
  2. Hi guys, I've just downloaded the latest version of ftrack launcher for OSX and can connect to my server and see all my tasks correctly. However when I try to launch a task with maya 2015 I get the following errors: file -f -new;// untitled // commandPort -securityWarning -name commandportDefault;// Warning: file: /Applications/Autodesk/maya2015/Maya.app/Contents/scripts/others/retargeter.mel line 27: Failed to run file: /Applications/Autodesk/maya2015/Maya.app/Contents/MacOS/plug-ins/retargeterNodes.py // // Error: file: /Applications/Autodesk/maya2015/Maya.app/Contents/scripts/others/retargeter.mel line 27: (retargeterNodes) // // Error: Unable to execute igInitialize.mel. // updateRendererUI; The file is not loaded and there's nothing related to ftrack within Maya 2015. I don't see the ftrack menu so I'm not sure if ftrack is doing it's thing correctly. Is this something that you are aware of with Maya 2015? Is there something I'm missing or not aware of?I did have to update the apps.xml file to show Maya 2015. Cheers! Rob

  4. HI Guys, I was wondering if there's any plan to integrate the project spreadsheet with the planning board? It would be something that makes sense to me. The way I see it operating is almost hierarchal. Planning board is used to overview all the projects running in the studio, resources that are booked on particular projects / tasks etc. While the project spreadsheet gets into the details of the specific project. Both sections are integrated so any tasks added in the project view show up on the planning view and vice versa. This seems like a logical step forward. I find that we avoid using the planning board all together but it has an advantage over the project view in that it can show you all projects running in a studio and the resources assigned to them. Cheers, Rob
  5. HI guys, I've just run into a problem with ftrack revew in that when you draw on a frame and add your comment there's no way to know what frame it was taken from. This is really annoying, especially when you have animation that repeats itself and you don't know what frame the comment came from. I guess there's a few ways to implement this but it's something that has caused confusion with working on a task. Any advice?
  6. To be able to update the thumbnail to reflect possible changes in design for the shot or task. This could be that the task thumbnail was a wireframe before, then changes to shaded, then possibly a final render.
  7. Hi guys, I've noticed that when you preview a video in ftrack the player controls sit over the video footage, and not below. Can this be fixed? I cannot preview the full frame as part of it is cut off at the bottom. See attached image:
  8. Hi Guys, I wanted to suggest a very simple solution to the creation of thumbnails for tasks or shots. It would save us lots of time fussing about. When I upload a new video for a shot or task, it would be great to be able to save a particular frame as the thumbnail. An example would be to be able to right click in the preview window and select 'set frame as thumbnail'. Does that make sense?
  9. Have you added it yet??? Still waiting.
  10. Having a client side review tool is essential. This would almost stop me from purchasing an account! My top 5 things are: Simple, minimal and intuitive interface (not all clients are tech savvy like us, most are really bad) Multiple client log-in accounts without a hefty fee (maybe up to 3 accounts?) Clear and friendly tutorial video on first log-in to show clients how to do things (that can be accessed again for future reference) Mobile / tablet friendly for clients on the road Company branding for login screenAnything more and I'd be to demanding
