    Robinson got a reaction from Henrik Mark in Wiping/switching between versions in Ftrack Review player   
    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.

    Robinson got a reaction from liveforpixel in Automatic population of task thumbnails from parent thumbnail?   
    As long as we're asking for the moon,
     
    It would be particularly useful if tasks not only inherited the thumbnail from the parent shot or asset build, but also automatically appeared with a stamp indicating the type of task, say first letter of the task type.
     
    This way is hierarchy views, task boards, and team planners leads can visually identify a shot and task quickly and easily. 
     
    Even if no thumbnail is submitted for an object, if the tasks thumbnails came with the default stamps it would simplify the information visually.
     
     
    For example:
     
    Shot 020 has a thumbnail that is a picture of a duck
    020 Tracking is a picture of a duck with a "T" stamp 
    020 Roto is a picture of a duck with a "R" stamp 
    020 Compositing is a picture of a duck with a "C" stamp

    Robinson reacted to vfxman222 in PDF Project, Sequence, Shot, Task naming request   
    So I have been outputting PDF docs of various data over the last few weeks for reviews and I am finding little quirks that are a bit annoying. Maybe this is different in fTrack v3, but I do not know.
     
    In some cases the data seen in the viewer is not what necessarily prints in the PDF. Like when viewing a List and then showing the List in "Shot/Asset Build" view, you see shots, with associated Tasks when you expand each shot. When exporting a PDF, you do not get the Tasks listed out as expected. I finally found a way for it to work and it is only when I view "All" for the project and not a List, but when I have data like this: (pardon the blurred spots, project is still not public yet)

     
    Nice and clean visually. Sequence, Shot, Tasks. No hierarchy naming like "ProjectName/Sequence/Shot/Task" for every item. When I export a PDF for this though I will get this:

     
    I find the extra bits of name data visual distracting and makes for a hard quick reading. Ideally it would be simple just like the actual source view in the first photo. So for example a shot name currently shows as...
     
    "PROJECT NAME" / 010 (cameron) / 001
     
    ...would simply read as...
     
    001
     
    ...and so forth for the others. Sequences and Tasks.
     
    "PROJECT NAME" / 010 (cameron) / 001 / Remove wires
     
    ...should be...
     
    - Remove wires
     
    The key name is already mentioned and it's not like it's miles away from the rest of the data to not easily find it. Here's a mockup:

     
    Just my two cents. Thanks.

    Robinson reacted to katalina-w in Automatic population of task thumbnails from parent thumbnail?   
    Hey all,
     
    Feedback I've heard from both production and supervisors here is that they would like it if tasks automatically inherited the thumbnail of their shot/asset build parent until a task's own thumbnail is specifically set via publish. This way, a user's tasks won't be a list with blank thumbnails when a project is new. I've considered building our own thumbnail uploader to achieve this but the consensus is it would be ideal if it happened when thumbnails are added via the main web app. We've of course been using the thumbnail changer but it is tedious for production to drag and drop a thumbnail for every single task.
     
    Is this something you'd consider including in a future version or would you suggest accomplishing it via actions?
