Launching the serviceΒΆ

ftrack connect revolves around a core service that runs locally on your machine. Once you have the main package installed, you need to run an instance of the service.

If you are using one of the pre-built packages you can just run the executable provided.

Otherwise, open a terminal and execute the following:

python -m ftrack_connect

Note

To see all available launch options (including changing the theme and logging verbosity) use:

python -m ftrack_connect --help

Once the service is launched, the main window will appear and you will also notice an ftrack icon in your task bar.

Windows:

../_images/windows_service.png

Mac:

../_images/mac_service.png

The service will then continue to run in the background even if you close all the windows.

To reopen a window or exit the service, use the service context menu.
