What is Anchorpoint

Anchorpoint is a simple management application for VFX, animation and real-time projects. It organizes assets and tasks in one cohesive app. More Information.


✨ What are Anchorpoint Actions?

If you've worked with Visual Studio Code, you know the concept of extensions. Visual Studio Code is delivered as a lightweight application and can be customized to your needs with extensions. An extension in Anchorpoint is like a collection of actions in Anchorpoint. For example, an action is a command, a hook, or an integration with another application.

πŸ—‚οΈ Example use cases

Everything where you have to do a lot of manual work (renaming files, copying files, constantly opening the DCC to load files and save them again or bugging your teammates to put data in the right place) you can automate with Actions.

πŸš€ Getting Started

The best way to get started is looking and code examples and modify them.

  1. Download Anchorpoint
  2. Go to your workspace settings

Execute Action

To get a good feeling just modify the greetings.yaml and in the "ui" folder in the source code. Then in the folder context menu pick "UI / Greetings Dialog" which will execute that Action.
