Import Cut API


Is there any Python API support for the import cut tool in RV?


Hey @mharris!

Outside of outlining the specifics of how the cut schema is organized on a per-entity and per-field basis, there are no API specific cut functions for ingesting/reading of cut info. You can read more about the cut schema here:

Hi @brandon.foster, I was thinking more along the lines of the Python commands built in to leverage off reading an EDL file and using the timing information to chop up a Sequence QuickTime file then automate creating the Shots.


Have you looked into OpenTimelineIO at all?

They have quite good support for most EDL formats as well as rv_sessions and more!


Those sort of functions aren’t a part of the Shotgun API. @Ahuge’s suggestion sounds like the best way to go.
