since monday and that update:
it was supposed to be easier to update Tasks and Task templates.
I have to say I was rather excited by this update, as it is quite a pain to do such operations - not even talking of the risks of taking the whole prod down if you make a mistake.
Anyway, I had a use case this morning with an update in my dependencies: I want my FX to depend on my Animation.
I first update my Task_template then try to update all my Shots.
I go to my Shot page, select my Shots and right-click on the Task_template -> ‘edit Task template on the selected’, as usual.
The new UI is pretty nice, and I notice the promising ‘Reapply’ button on the right bottom. I click on this, it runs and… no dependency update appear on my Shots, even after a page refresh.
Ok then, let’s try the old way.
I go to my test Shots, select them and choose ‘No template’ in the new UI.
I apply, it asks me if I want to send all my existing Tasks to thrash - nope, I just want to update them!
So I keep the Tasks, and reapply the previous template the same way.
And there we are : I have all my Shot Tasks duplicated, the new FX Tasks having the dependency and the old ones not
So I am a bit disappointed: the new update way does not do what I expect it to, and the old one does not work anymore. I have to update all my dependencies by hand for the existing Shots.
Could you please check this, or let me know what I did wrong?
Thanks a lot,
