Upload a Thumbnail for a Version¶
So you’ve created a new Version of a Shot, and you’ve updated Shotgun, but now you want to upload a
beauty frame to display as the thumbnail for your Version. We’ll assume you already have the image
made (located on your machine at
/v1/gun/s100/010/beauties/anim/100_010_animv1.jpg) . And since
you’ve just created your Version in Shotgun, you know its
id is 214.
If you upload a movie file or image to the
sg_uploaded_movie field and you have
transcoding enabled on your server (the default for hosted sites), a thumbnail will be
generated automatically as well as a filmstrip thumbnail (if possible).
This is a basic example of how to manually provide or replace a thumbnail image.
Upload the Image using
sg.upload_thumbnail("Version", 214, "/v1/gun/s100/010/beauties/anim/100_010_animv1.jpg")
Shotgun will take care of resizing the thumbnail for you. If something does go wrong, an exception will be thrown and you’ll see the error details.
The result returned by
upload_thumbnail() is an integer
representing the id of a special
Attachment entity in Shotgun. Working with Attachments
is beyond the scope of this example. :)
