Here what I do normally:
I’m a shake user . . .
When a want to play a image sequence, by using shake’s flipbook, that I just rendered on our network, I go browse the network, using the finder, and when I got the folder where my image sequence is in, I drag&drop the first file in a “Terminal shell” where I had pre-type “shake” in.
And then, I go back and change the end of the file to better suit my needs. See EX:
So after I have type “shake” and add the drag&drop in the Terminal it give me that:
After a bit of editing manually:
shake /Volumes/Projects/BeachDream/VFX/BD0013_00/BD0013_003/2D/Comp/hi/BD0013_003_b03b/BD0013_003_b03b.####.tga -t 1-75
So, as you see, I change the zero at the end of the file for .####. and add -t 1-75 wich is the number of frame that folder contain. And that tell the flipbook the range of frame to open and play.
I press “enter” and a “shake flipbook” open and load up that serie of frame that I can now play in realTime.It is fast and convenient.
Here the question:
Would it be possible to have a “AS icon” where a could, let say… Drag & Drop the folder that my images sequence are in and it will automatically do the “Terminal things” for me ? It will just open the flipbook in question with the good frame range wich always correspond to the amount of frame in the folder.
thanks for your Help
