@mmoshev, as Nico pointed out, you can specify a task to launch into on the commandline, so that will save you some browsing in the File Open dialog. If your engine supports it, you could set the
launch_at_startup setting on
True, so that you won’t need to manually open the File Open dialog at launch time.
Another option to explore would be reloading things within your DCC session. I know we’ve seen some issues where not everything that you’d expect is being refreshed, but if it works for you, it’ll speed up your iterations quite a bit. You have a couple options:
- If any of the bundles in your environment has a
dev descriptor, you’ll get a
Reload and Restart command in the Shotgun menu in your DCC:
- And even without a dev descriptor, you’ll always have a “Reload Engines and Apps” button on the Work Area Info app:
Hope that helps! Let us know if you have any other questions, and if the those commands aren’t working as expected, I’d love to hear about that, too, so I can escalate it.
