Export Controller - Source Range question

Aug 13, 2013 5:36 PM

Tags: #scripting #export_controller_api

I've written an export controller plug-in that works with a database to register metadata and moves exported media around where it needs to go for playback (TV station automation).  One thing I've been unable to resolve is the notion of the user being able to select whether they want the whole sequence exported, the work area, or the in/out points exported.  I'm unable to really locate this in the SDK documentation, instead any exports simply render out the entire timeline.  In a plain vanilla media export the user can select the Source Range and choose things like Work Area, Sequence In/Out, or Custom.  I'm probably just missing it, but I don't see where the hooks for this are in the Export Controller SDK.  Can someone give me a nudge in the right direction on where I can set whether to export the whole timeline, or just the work area in an Export Controller?

    Hi Dave,


    You're not missing anything - this isn't something we've exposed yet.  How valuable would this be for your client?

    Hi, Dave.


    Much is possible using PPro's scripting API, including (but not limited to) calling existing export controllers, rendering sequences to [some AME preset, which may include ftp post-processing] and [some destination]...and rendering using AME on the same system, so editors can get back to editing.


    I'm curious about your Harris integration work; my Harris contact hadn't heard of your efforts.



    Please contact me directly at bbb at adobe dot com, to further discuss possibilities.
