I'm trying to automate a field that links to the shot DIR so artists don't have to traverse the file system. I've got it working through the API but I've noticed something strange is happening. The links work just fine, but they also create references in the Shot Reference tab and if you do a search for all files there's also a link in there too. If I was to manually add the local file link these extra references aren't made. How do I stop my code from generating these extra references?
My code is pretty much the same as the 'Linking to Local Files' post on here. Is anyone else having the same outcome?
