something like this: http://vfxpedia.com/...feCheckThis.zip

-- JefeCheck This
--
-- A ToolScript that makes a preview and opens it in JefeCheck
-- (http://jefecheck.jefecorp.com/)
-- (quiet similar to the built-in "create preview on" feature)
--
-- On Loader/Savers it will just open in jefeCheck with the footage of the loader/saver
-- on all other tools it will create a temporary saver, renders and opens jefeCheck with the new Footage
--
-- User can specify path and name for the temporary footage
-- User can select proxylevel of rendering (level 1 is HiQ on)

you have to open the script in a editor and set the correct path to the jefecheck executable

Cool, thanks for that. Now perhaps I can retire DJV and your other script!

I'm wondering if you can make the script for JefeCheck work with the four layers. Would it be possible to select 1-4 loaders in FU and send those to the individual layers in one go... ?

Also I notice that JefeCheck loads a new instance of the program for each run of the script. Does their API allow for calling to the program (JefeCheck) that is already in memory, and not load a new instance?

Thanks for the script.

to load up 4 layers shouldnt be a problem

for calling a running session of jefecheck i have to dig deeper in the documentation. right now i just starts a new instance with the path of the footage via commandline.

Here's a quick Python script to open Loaders and Savers in JefeCheck. It's plain-vanilla, with no options, and requires that only one sequence exist in the directory sourced by the tool (which is how we do things here anyway, since we don't mix multiple sequences in the same directory). If it's of use to the Pythonistas, have at it.

Also, in our case, all of our frame sequences start at 1001, but the comps start at 1, so the start and end frames listed by the tool are not the same values as the actual start and end frame numbers. So I do a little os.path business to get the first frame in the sequence, regardless of what the tool says.

import os
import subprocess

JefeCheck = 'Path\To\JefeCheck.exe'

if (tool.GetAttrs()['TOOLS_RegID'] == "Saver") or (tool.GetAttrs()['TOOLS_RegID'] == "Loader"):
    clipName = tool.GetAttrs()['TOOLST_Clip_Name'][1]
    parentDir = os.path.dirname(clipName)
    firstFrame = sorted(os.listdir(parentDir))[0]
    targetFile = os.path.join(parentDir, firstFrame)
    subprocess.Popen('%s %s' %(JefeCheck, targetFile))

My first and little contribution to the community: A python script that allows you to load up to 4 sequences into JefeCheck. To make it work, you need to check if the path to JefeCheck.exe is correct. If is not, you need to manually change it of course.

Quick video explaining how it works:
http://www.screencast.com/t/4Zvsq23Oi

And attached you'll find the script, just replace .txt with .py and place it in your composition scripts folder.



I hope you find it useful,

Orlando.
