TOPIC: Runtime environment?

Runtime environment? 1 year 8 months ago #206

Hey,

when I execute an action within 3DPlay, is there a way to differentiate if I am in "proper MCR 3DPlay" or in the "scheduling 3DPlayBrowser (ActiveX)"? We would like to logic to behave a bit differently (such as file paths, some extra fields visible in the preview renderer, etc...)

Thanks!
We are all, by any practical definition of the words, foolproof and incapable of error.

Hi,

Can you please elaborate.

More details such as: How do you execute the action? will be helpful.

Maybe some step by step example with the desired response.

Thanks,
Yogev

Sure,

in our workflow we have scheduling people using 3DPlayBrowser and they prepare events which are the played out in MCR via 3DPlay later on.

In some cases we would like the actions to work slightly differently in the preparation phase of the workflow, for instance we might have "a debug view" in the renderer showing export values or something, but that should NEVER be shown in the playout renderer. Or we might have a file management routine running while in preview but not in playout. Stuff like this.

But for this to work, we would need to recognize if the action is running in the "preview environment" or in the "playout environment". This could be an internal 3DPlay constant / variable such as "RunningAsActiveX = True" or something...

Naturally we can have VB-script checking the hostname of the current machine, but that's a nasty approach...

Maybe there is something already.
Maybe there is something in the future version :-)

Cheers,

Hi,

I now understand what you are trying to achieve :)

You could try using a checkbox with a condition for preview or MCR, but it will have to be check manually.

At the moment we don't have such an automatic way of doing that.

Cheers,
Yogev
