Assets Browser

Assets Browser is a Python app that are designed to manage and browse assets for 3DCG/VFX pipeline.

This is still an ongoing progress and minor bugs are expected.

Goals

During my time working for a small 3DCG studio, the creation of new assets are tedious since it is created manually by hand using Windows Explorer.

Furthermore, there are issues with user permission problem that requires the artist to refer to their team leader or project manager to help them create the assets which affect productivity.

Plus navigating the various assets on the server are not friendly using Windows Explorer.

For reasons above, I decided to write this Python app which helps to minimise the effort of creating new assets with parameters that meets the studio's pipeline (which can be customised to fit your pipeline environment) and greatly speed up the navigation of the available assets based on the project.

Since this code is written in Python, it can be easily deployed to any workstations provided the necessary dependencies has been installed.

Features

  • Navigate assets based on projects from a dropdown list.
  • Create new assets using dialog with options.
  • IN PROGRESS: Integrated help file for assets as reference for artists.

Usage

Requirements

The codes has been tested on Windows 7, macOS Sierra and Lubuntu 17.10 for cross-platform compatibility.

  1. Clone or download the repository.
  2. Extract to your chosen destination.
  3. Run assetsbrowser.py
