Hi everyone! I'm writing here to let you know that we are working on some changes to make Connect easier to extend and develop plugins for. Some of you I've already been in contact with but I would love to hear the feedback and opinions from the Community. We have a lot of ideas that we want to implement in Connect but the plan is to start out by tackling two common issues: Extending and modifying the environment and command when an application starts from Connect. Adding hooks to Connect without modifying the FTRACK_EVENT_PLUGIN_PATH. The way we intend to solve this is: Emit an event every time an application is launched from Connect. The event will contain application identifier, context, command and options that contain the environment variables. Here you will be able to make changes to environment variables, command and options. This should allow a lot of flexibility without having to override the built-in hook it-self. A platform dependent default directory from where plugins can be discovered without modifications to FTRACK_EVENT_PLUGIN_PATH. E.g. on OS X it would be something like /Users/mattiaslagergren/Library/Application Support/ftrack-connect-plugins/. We also intend to give the option set an environment variable so that you can centralise the plugins to one directory that everyone in the studio reads from. Connect will pick up plugins from both places.
Whenever I set a new location for the FTRACK_EVENT_PLUGIN_PATH I lose all actions within connect. I can't figure out how to append to the default location on Windows and I can't remember where I found an earlier example, but that example didn't work for me. The example in the docs used 'export' as to append a custom plugin location. -Mike
Hello, We just started using ftrack and are testing it, so this is probably a noob question I just tried to install the extension for Photoshop. But when I click on Publish, it says Error: Unable to publish; Not connected to event server. Also when choosing an Action on the website I dont get Photoshop as an option. In the Photoshop extension debug info it says this: I also use Maya. Maya works. The thing is I got Maya installed on my C: drive , but all Adobe Programms are installed on my E: drive. I think ftrack connect doesnt find my Adobe programms, because they are not installed in the C drive? How do I tell ftrack connect to look for programms also installed on my E: drive? Or where do I change those settings from the debug info (user, entityId and entityType) ?
