scripting limitations on collaborative project

PostThu Oct 21, 2021 5:31 am

Hey guys,

Just wondering if anyone else has run into this. I'm trying to fix up a script I have for automating dailies tasks in resolve and using the SetLut() function, I have run into a bit of a wall. If I call a script to set lut for all clips in timeline(let alone matching them to a set of CDL's and LUT's) I only get the lut applied to one clip(the clip I am currently on) if I am in a collaborative project. If I am in a non-collab project, it correctly applies all luts to all clips. Has anyone seen this behavior before and are there any other limitations to the api in collaborative projects I should be aware of?

I am currently testing on resolve 17.2.2 as well.

My very simple script to test the behavior is here:

Code: Select all
lut = r"C:\ProgramData\Blackmagic Design\DaVinci Resolve\Support\LUT\mysweetlut.cube"

currClip = timeline.GetCurrentVideoItem()
TimelineText="Timeline Clips - " + timeline.GetName()

for x in range(1 , int(trackList) + 1):
    tmpclipList=timeline.GetItemListInTrack("video" , x)
    if tmpclipList == None:
        for y in tmpclipList:

for x in clipList:

API scripts have been improved with the new 17.4 update. I wonder if this would help you? Sounds like an interesting script you are making
