Custom Action Feedback
2 2

6 posts in this topic

I have written a custom action to upload a reference movie clip to a shot in ftrack. 
Once the action is launched, it creates a movie from images on disk and then uploads this movie as an attachment to the shot. 
After the action is launched, the movie creation and upload runs asynchronously. 

What's the best way to give feedback to the user regarding the asynchronous processes? I can output messages to the terminal, but an artist may not look at their terminal or even have it open.

How can I do I give feedback in the ftrack web UI? 

Thanks,
Natasha

I have been using a job to wrap a long running action and it is quite nice.

But jobs seems a bit limited with legacy API, is there a way to specify:

  • a progress value 
  • a custom message (in addition to the title)

Or should we switch to new API for this ?

Cheers,
