Adding Folder Template#

This example plugin adds a custom folder template, which will be visible in the “Folder Structure” tab in the Prism Project Settings.

The template is then used in a postExport callback to generate a path where a USD file will be saved.

See the section for Single File Plugins on how to load this example.

    def __init__(self, core):

        data = {"label": "My Custom Template", "key": "@myustomTemplate_path@", "value": "@productversion_path@/@asset@/@asset@@extension@", "requires": ["extension"]}
        self.core.projects.addProjectStructureItem("myCustomTemplate", data)

        # register postExport callback
        self.core.registerCallback("postExport", self.postExport, plugin=self)

        entity = self.core.paths.getCachePathData(kwargs["outputpath"])

        context = {"extension": ".usda"}

        # generate a path from the template
        path = self.core.projects.getResolvedProjectStructurePath("myCustomTemplate", context=context)

        # the following files save an empty usd file to the generated path. It requires the USD plugin to be loaded.
        usdApi = self.core.getPlugin("USD").api
        stage = usdApi.createEmptyStage()
        usdApi.saveStage(stage, path)
