Fusion : hos_incrementalSave.eyeonscript

eyeonfusion120Here’s a script that mimics the way Autodesk Maya handles incremental saving of scene files.

Basically what it does is create a directory (if it is not already there) called incrementalSave in the directory your comp is located, in the incrementalSave directory another directory is created with the exact same name as your comp (including the extension)

Finally when both directories exist, the script copies your old scene file to the incrementalSave\compname directory and adds a 4 digit versioning number between the file name and the extension, separated by a ‘period’.

Every time you save, the directory structure is checked, and the script checks what the next highest versioning number should be, your old comp is copied, and the comp is saved (this way your final comp will always have the same name, where as you ‘backups’ are the only files that get incremented.)

The script has not been tested to death yet, so if you find anything, let me know.

Also, i have no idea whether or not this will play merry hell with Generations (as i have no idea whether or not Generations has a build in incremental saving system.)

Another thing you will notice is, that since this script copies the versioning file using the os.execute command, a DOS pop-up will appear for a couple of milliseconds, this is as far as i know, unavoidable, if someone however knows another way, please let me know.



Version 1.2 changelog:

  1. Changed the incremental save file pattern matching.

 some small updates from the inital release:

 v1.2 changes:
 - Changed the way the postfix increment number for the incremental backup comp
 is searched for, as in the older version a name like 'vfx_shot_01_31-448.comp
 would break the gsub expression for some unknown reason, returning a nil value.

 v1.1 changes:
 - creating the backup incremental file now uses the os.rename function to move
 the file, this worked in Lightwave and seems to behave the same in Fusion,
 this prevents the DOS box popup on saving.

 - renamed the script to match our other script and plugin naming conventions.

 - encapsulated the DOS file names in quotation marks to make creation in and
 of directories with spaces possible.

 v1.0 changes:
 - Initial release
