I’m trying to write a publish hook to use with
tk-multi-publish-2 that will accept both
.ass.gz files. In my templates I’ve defined a key for the file extension to accept them both which works happily, but I can’t get shotgun to work nicely with the
.ass.gz extension in two other areas.
get_file_path_components, which is used by the standard collector. One of its functions is to determine the file extension, but I can’t get it to recognise
.ass.gz as the extension, instead it returns just
.gz, so I’m unable to use
.ass.gz in the collector’s file type definitions. I don’t mind working around this by just defining
.gz as an extension for this file type, but I’d prefer a cleaner solution if possible.
The bigger issue is that the
publisher.util.get_frame_sequence_path method doesn’t recognise file sequences ending in
.ass.gz. I presume this is because it only considers file paths where the frame number is in the penultimate term? This is resulting in the misidentification of my publish items as single files rather than sequences, scuppering the later
_copy_work_to_publish method in
publish_sg_common, as this relies on the
sequence_paths property filled by the previously mentioned method. The end result is only one file gets copied.
I’m quite new to shotgun so I might be missing something simple? Is there an example of how to handle file extensions like this? Or do I need to start overriding methods?
