Hello! I’m using the API to add source footage location to the Path_To_Movie field for versions.
Ideally I’d like my users to click on path to movie (to open in RV, or to open in file explorer / finder whether they are in Windows or OSX )and it’ll translate path properly to network share.
i.e. /Volumes/share/etc vs X:*share*\etc
Is this the same as linking local files? If not, how can I take advantage of linking local files for a similar workflow? I think I may just be confused on the nomenclature. Thanks!
Enable linking to local files
This option allows users to point to files or folders on a shared file system instead of uploading them. Other users with access to that file system can then click to immediately open that file or jump to the folder in their finder / explorer. Create one or more storage configurations, which includes the base paths for all the operating systems you want to support. Read more about how this works.
