Is there any option do add comments/descriptions to versions in the client-review? Apparently the only information that are carried on to the review-session are the TaskName, parent object name and version index. It would be great if it is possible to forward comments / descriptions from the AssetVersion to the client-review. Or display the Asset Name as well. For example when I want to share 2 Versions of the same edit with different audio files or different endings the only ways to make clearly distinguishable for the reviewer is to either comment the versions myself right in the review, add slates or create separate parent objects or tasks for each version. And frankly, I don't find any of them appealing. Including the AssetName as information for the reviewer would be a step forward but an option to manually pick attributes/comments which will be forwarded would be even more useful. Maybe I am missing something and it is already possible? AFAIK there is also no option to work something out via the api?
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 the project. So my project structure goes from very simple to a complex one with many commercials in a project and a lot of ppl doing it at the same time. Problem starts when I want to review a commercial. Usually there is 1 main online / comp guy that gathers all assets from different shots, puts that into edit and outputs entire commercial at current state. So he uploads the mov file into his task that is one of many. When I review that movie and add notes - all notes land into just that one task, and all other people don't have any idea about them. What would be good is to have an option of each note to redirect it to some other task within the project. 2nd thing is about client review - Our producers use it to gather client feedback on at the end of offline presentation - they upload the movie and do it live with the client on the side. Thing is that since offline is first part of the project quite often you don't have a project structure created by supervisor ( since we don't know exactly whats the brief ). That means that all the feedback and notes cannot be published into ftrack tasks - This is where the "redirect" option would be awesome. Without it our producers have to do it 2-3 times - one for the client, and then later on after the structure is created. Another thing is to be able to change the order of the notes that are added - Sometimes we jump from shot 1 to 9 in notes, then get back and write notes for shot no 2. That way they are not chronological based on edit. That is very hard for our clients to digest, and it would be easier for our artist to dig into if our producers had an option to change the order to correct one.
