I have a couple tk-apps that launch Photoshop from the Shotgun browser. Some times I want to open a fresh instance of Photoshop, which is good because thats all I currently know how to do via engine.execute_command().
But what I really would want in some cases is to just foreground the the currently running Photoshop/Engine instance and open the file. This would save the launch time and the time it takes to spin-up the engine.
So, how would I…
- Check to see if the PhotoshopCC engine is running.
- Tell the engine to open up the file so I don’t need to launch a new instance (and engine).
Are they all connected with a ‘parent’?
