Cinema 4D SetupRender and Playblast App

Hi,
we are trying to integrate Cinema 4D with Shotgun and we found the fabulous Mykhailo Datsyk files!
Cinema 4D is up and running and the Set Frame range. But we don’t have any luck with:

Of course we are doing something wrong if is not working.
Any help to set up these, step by step?
Playblast has some instructions but no luck with them. What is the way to install a App?

Many Thanks

Hi @johnny.duguid thanks for the tip!
Hi @Mykhailo_Datsyk first of all thanks for your contribution! Your tools for Cinema works really well! Thanks!
But I tried to install the tk-cinema-playblast and tk-cinema-setuprender but because maybe they are not really detailed I made a mistake on the installation. I will start with one.
I copied the tk-cinema playblast into:

install\github\mikedatsik\tk-cinema\v1.0.0\config\env\shot_step.yml

  • ./includes/settings/tk-cinema.yml

engines:
tk-cinema: “@settings.tk-cinema.shot_step

**tk-cinema-playblast:
** hook_post_playblast: default
** hook_setup_window: default
** location: {name: tk-cinema-playblast, type: manual, version: v0.1.0}
** template_shot_work: cinema_shot_work
** template_shot: cinema_shot_playblast
** template_sequence: cinema_sequence_playblast
** #scale_options: [25, 100]
** #temp_directory: “C:/Temp”
** #camera_name_pattern: “.ShotCam_.

and I added:

shot_step

tk-multi-about:

  • {app_instance: tk-multi-publish2, name: Publish…}

- {app_instance: tk-cinema-playblast, name: Cinema Playblast…}

template_project: shot_work_area_cinema
location: “@engines.tk-cinema.location

under install\github\mikedatsik\tk-cinema\v1.0.0\config\env\includes\settings\tk-cinema.yml

Is it ok?Or I’m missing something important?

Many thanks for your job!
