tk-multi-reviewsubmission Review submission: "bad" codec (apple prores 4444) with Nuke 9 on linux

Hi,

In tk-multi-reviewsubmission 0.1.12, the linux output node code sets is configured to use the "ffmpeg" file type with the "mov" format in apps/app_store/tk-multi-reviewsubmission/v0.1.12/python/tk_multi_reviewsubmission/renderer.py:

elif sys.platform == "linux2":
# On linux, use ffmpeg
node["file_type"].setValue("ffmpeg")
node["format"].setValue("MOV format (mov)")

Though in Nuke 9 on linux, the "ffmpeg" file type does not exist anymore and because of that, nuke 9 will fallback to the "mov" file type with the "apple prores 4444" codec. Unfortunately, RV cannot read this file format natively.

How can we fix this? It would make more sense to use the "mov" file type with the "mpeg4" codec (like what "ffmpeg / mov" was doing in version below 9) pr maybe "mov" file type with the "photo - jpeg" (mjpeg) codec to match what is done on windows and mac in tk-multi-reviewsubmission 0.1.12

More generally:

  • can we somehow overload the "__create_output_node" method in a project pipeline configuration?
  • wouldn't it be more handy to let us set the file type and format/codec at the app configuration level?

Thank you for your help and best regards,

Maxim

    Hello Maxim!

    Thanks for the feedback! Sounds like we should at the very least put this logic in a hook so that each studio can fine tune the options. Let me check in with the team and get back to you.

    Hey Maxim!

    I spoke to the team about this yesterday - it looks like we already have a pull request that splits out the functionality into a hook - https://github.com/shotgunsoftware/tk-multi-reviewsubmission/pull/1, so this is potentially a quick improvement we can do! We are totally slammed up until siggraph in August, but we'll try to get this into one of the sprints soon after.

    Thanks!
