Ability to add notes and annotations to shots during Sequence Playback
When reviewing in sequence playback it would be great to be able to add a note or annotation to the shot that we're paused on. Currently we have to click on the individual shot on the item list panel on the left, add the note to the note box on the right, and then reselect the rest of the shots in the item list to continue playing in sequence.
Sequence Playback trim handles
Being able to trim the handles when playing back sequence would be Awesome!
Compare mode order number with 3D assets
I understand that 3D assets can't be compared in Compare mode. But when there is a 3D asset, the numbering of each file gets off and is no longer accurate because the 3D asset isn't listed. Could the 3D asset still be listed in Compare mode but not selectable so the numbering remains consistent?
Support Compare Mode with 3d animation assets
Currently the side by side comparison features do not work with 3d assets, and specifically 3d animation files. This would be a huge help in reviewing animations to see the changes side by side, and to sync the cameras and timelines of the two 3d assets being viewed
Copy drawings and notes from a video to another video within the same project
It would be great to be able to copy certain or all drawings and notes from a video to another video within the same project. In our projects, we often have little updates and it would be nice to just copy/paste the notes onto the updated video.
Shapes and text tool
Ability to draw simple shapes (such as a circle, rectangle, arrow, etc), and type text directly on an item as a quick way of annotating.
Add thumbnail control in shotgun_sync_review_items API call
I have created a support script to sync ShotGrid playlists to SyncSketch after a successful delivery to ShotGrid. The call I use is the following from the python api: shotgun_sync_review_items(...). While the script works nicely, I have noticed on its deployment, that it is too fast for the ShotGrid transcoder, which is still creating a thumbnail for the ShotGrid Version after my script finishes its work. This results in an annoying behaviour that for 99% of media files synced to SyncSketch have the ShotGrid placeholder thumbnail, as seen in the attachment. I am currently considering multiple workarounds to solve the issue, be it time delays or thumbnail URL updates. But honestly the cleanest solution would be adding a new parameter to the API call, e.g. ignore_sg_thumbnail=False. Such a parameter would simply force the sync to not sync thumbnails and for legacy reasons we could default it to False to keep the current behaviour.
Better organization within a playlist
It would be great to group media within a playlist. Like if we had a bunch of items in a playlist could we collect them into little bundles/groups. I know you can create review groups but are looking for organizational tools/options within the playlist.
Field Guide Overlay Option
An field guide overlay that would be "transparent" so we could see the shot/images underneath. Very helpful for Layout reviews in Animation
