I'm just starting to play around with the toolkit stuff, and so far I think it's pretty cool what you guys are doing.
Two topics that I think would be great as a standard toolkit app in a VFX pipeline:
I found a thread from 2013 which talks about publishing plates from Hiero, which is great. However in pipelines I'm used to we'd normally receive plates (in form of dpx or exr sequences) from a client/DI house. Usually a coordinator then publishes those plates to the asset management system.
So it would be great if there was an app in toolkit that can be launched straight from shotgun (or command line?), without having to open a separate app (Hiero, Nuke etc, basically apps that are beyond a coordinators know-how), which allows you to publish plates to Tank. There is definitely a lot of studio specific configs, but a base app for this would be fantastic!
same with Deliveries. a base app, again launchable from within Shotgun, which can handle deliveries would be great. This one probably has even more per studio (and per project) configs, but a basic framework would be sweet!
I'm just thinking that this would kinda complete the whole roundtrip within toolkit.
