There would be no fun without VFX!
I was shocked and very pleased to hear that Shotgun Software decided to unify their pricing and bring it down to $49 USD per month per user with the API! How awesome is that?!
That brings me to a thought of actually releasing our duberPython plugin for a ridiculously low price so that EVERYONE can use Shotgun and our Python module in their pipeline!
Let me know what you think, guys and I’ll prep the installations in the meantime.
I’ve been extremely busy recently, thus the updates on this blog have been, well, nonexistent.
I promise I’ll write about some really fucking exciting shit (oh yeah: Max, Mari, Nuke…) pretty soon, but I’ll have to deliver two more TVCs this and early next month. So, possibly right after that.
Stay tuned, you won’t be dissappointed, I promise. Cheers…
Just a shout out to those who downloaded my RV Explorer integration Python script.
I’ve updated it so that RV now accepts file sequences with various leading zero lengths as I bumped into this issue myself recently.
Hope I haven’t caused you too much trouble.
Here’s the updated script: v0.3
I got really sick of all the shit that Mozilla started doing with Firefox lately. It kept on freezing, crashing, updating all the time, the Flash was basically unusable in Firefox (though I blame Adobe for that), but mainly it became bigger, bloated and slower with each micro-release.
This drove me to, again, evaulate Chrome (as I can’t stand Opera in general, so I won’t even bother trying it out). And to my surprise, they removed those annoying little bits I didn’t like last time I was trying it out and added a few handy features I appretiate.
The smooth scrolling is still a far cry from Firefox, though, but it’s snappy, feels lightweight and doesn’t get in my way as I basically just want to browse the web, not admire the software that does the rendering for me.
So, as of today, after a few days of trying Chrome out, I made Chrome my default browser and I hope it won’t be pissing me off as much as Firefox has in the past few weeks.
This, Mozilla, shows how easy it is to lose user base.
This post is basically just a note to myself, because I keep searching for this every now and then and every time I forget the syntax. So, here’s what you need to do in order to extract .msi archives to a specific folder of your choice.
To extract files from a .msi file from the command line, type:
msiexec /a PathToMSIFile /qb TARGETDIR=DirectoryToExtractTo
For example, to extract files from X:\installs\someProgram.msi into C:\someProgram you would type:
msiexec /a X:\installs\someProgram.msi /qb TARGETDIR=C:\someProgram
Yesterday, I posted about RV integration in Windows Explorer. Today, I have the script and a tutorial on how to hook this up ready for your pleasures.
Just download the script, place it somewhere safe and follow the tutorial on how to create an RV specific right-click menu entry in Windows Explorer.
Basically, I’m tired of this workflow: fire up RV, invoke the open file dialog, navigate to the folder where my image sequence is and finally double-click the sequence I want to review.
I want to streamline this workflow as much as possible. So, my idea is to add a right-click menu entry for the most frequent file types I review daily, i.e. jpgs, exrs, tiffs, etc. When right-clicking on any of the files in a sequence a script will figure out the sequence numbering and will pass the wild-carded file name to RV via RVPUSH.
When I’m done, I’ll post the scripts and how-to here, so stay tuned.
We’ve launched a brand new website, courtesy of our friends at refresh.cz, with some latest finished projects showcase, including our new demoreel. Head over to duber.cz and leave a comment if you like, hell, even if you don’t like the new site.
Thanks for watching!
I’ve been looking for the perfect phone since my good old Nokia 7650 I had in high school. It was a great phone, back then. Had a very comfy portrait keypad and a large screen. Since then I had a few more Nokias until finally switching to HTC phones. My first HTC was TyTN II, what a beast! Then, after the iPhone introduction, some more touch only or touch + type HTC phones. My last one was HD2. I loved and hated the phone equally.
