Fileseq

Documentation Status Travis Build Status AppVeyor Build status

A Python library for parsing frame ranges and file sequences commonly used in VFX and Animation applications.

Frame Range Shorthand

Support for:

  • Standard: 1-10
  • Comma Delimited: 1-10,10-20
  • Chunked: 1-100x5
  • Filled: 1-100y5
  • Staggered: 1-100:3 (1-100x3, 1-100x2, 1-100)
  • Negative frame numbers: -10-100
  • Padding: #=4 padded, @=single pad
  • Printf Syntax Padding: %04d=4 padded, %01d=1 padded
  • Houdini Syntax Padding: $F4=4 padding, $F=1 padded

FrameSets

A FrameSet wraps a sequence of frames in a list list container.

Iterate a FrameSet

fs = fileseq.FrameSet("1-5")
for f in fs:
  print f

Access Frames

Using Indices:

>>> fs = fileseq.FrameSet("1-100:8")
>>> fs[0] # First frame.
1
>>> fs[-1] # Last frame.
98

Using Convenience Methods:

>>> fs = fileseq.FrameSet("1-100:8")
>>> fs.start() # First frame.
1
>>> fs.end() # Last frame.
98

FileSequence

Instantiate from String

fileseq.FileSequence("/foo/bar.1-10#.exr")

Format Path for VFX Software

Using FileSequence.format Method:

>>> seq = fileseq.FileSequence("/foo/bar.1-10#.exr")
>>> seq.format(template='{dirname}{basename}{padding}{extension}') 
"/foo/bar.#.exr"

Joining:

>>> seq = fileseq.FileSequence("/foo/bar.1-10#.exr")
>>> ''.join([seq.dirname(), seq.basename(), '%0{}d'.format(len(str(seq.end()))), seq.extension()])
"/foo/bar.%02d.exr"

Get List of File Paths

>>> seq = fileseq.FileSequence("/foo/bar.1-10#.exr")
>>> [seq[idx] for idx, fr in enumerate(seq.frameSet())]
['/foo/bar.0001.exr',
 '/foo/bar.0002.exr',
 '/foo/bar.0003.exr',
 '/foo/bar.0004.exr',
 '/foo/bar.0005.exr',
 '/foo/bar.0006.exr',
 '/foo/bar.0007.exr',
 '/foo/bar.0008.exr',
 '/foo/bar.0009.exr',
 '/foo/bar.0010.exr']

Finding Sequences on Disk

Check a Directory for All Existing Sequences

seqs = fileseq.findSequencesOnDisk("/show/shot/renders/bty_foo/v1")

Check a Directory for One Existing Sequence.

  • Use a '@' or '#' where you might expect to use '*' for a wildcard character.
  • For this method, it doesn't matter how many instances of the padding character you use, it will still find your sequence.

Yes:

fileseq.findSequenceOnDisk('/foo/bar.@.exr')

Yes:

fileseq.findSequenceOnDisk('/foo/bar.@@@@@.exr')

No:

fileseq.findSequenceOnDisk('/foo/bar.*.exr')
