Dragonframe can call a local script file whenever certain events occur.
This is a very easy and straightforward integration with many possibilities. Here are some:
- Back up your high-resolution images whenever a new image is downloaded.
- Color process your RAW files whenever a new image is downloaded.
- Notify a content management system whenever a frame is captured.
- Instruct a motion control application to advance its position whenever Dragonframe moves to a new frame.
Dragonframe calls your script file for the following events:
- SHOOT : As soon as the user triggers a frame capture.
- DELETE : As soon as the user deletes an image.
- POSITION FRAME : When Dragonframe is ready to capture another frame/exposure.
- CAPTURE COMPLETE : When Dragonframe has downloaded a high-resolution image from your camera.
- FRAME COMPLETE : When Dragonframe has captured all exposures for a frame.
- TEST : When Dragonframe has downloaded a high-resolution image from your camera as a test shot.
- EDIT : When Dragonframe has performed a timeline edit (cut/copy/paste).
- CONFORM : When Dragonframe has completed conforming edits of a take.
Your script file is a bash script (".sh", for Mac OS X) or a batch file (".bat", for Windows).
