RV's Movieproc `name` field requres url_safe version of base64

Ran into a ‘fun’ issue and I wanted to let others know in case I’ve advised them in the past. I’ve learned that RV’s name tag on movieprocs require the url_safe version of base64’s encode, otherwise / characters will break the movieproc and you’ll get default args to your movieproc.

Base64 has / and + characters as valid characters in addition to a-z and A-Z, the url_safe version will avoid those characters.

PS, @Autodesk, this would be a nice limitation to document in the movieproc docs here:

base64 string to spoof filename
