    Create an empty Sequence

    Hi All,

    How can i create an empty sequence using the Webservice API. I can create a shotlist but it needs to have at least one shot in it. 

    I would like to create a placeholder Sequence with a VideoID/TapeID attribute so that a Send to Playback results in a file where the filename matches the video ID in a Playout system like iNews Command.

    An alternative would be to create default sequences and then make a renamed copy and change the videoID. This would be the non-ideal option.

    Anyone?

    Hi Rens, it is not possible to create an empty sequence. Maybe you can create one with the new CTMS Api.

    Hi Rens,

    Avid should support create_asset in the CTMS API based on the API documentation
    https://developer.avid.com/ctms/api/rs_aa/rs_aa_assets.html#_aa_create_asset
    However the aa:asset resource has the other functionalities as described, but it looks like it doesn't support the create_asset functionality. This is based on MediaCentral 2020.4.3 and avid PAM CTC 2.7.0, so maybe its removed or it will be added in a later version.


    The alternative you mention looks like the only feasible solution. The CTMS API also supports duplicating and moving items just like the old webservice did. Described here: https://developer.avid.com/ctms/api/rs_loc/rs_loc_item.html

    Hi Rens and Ruben, you can upload an AAF and use that as empty sequence.

    https://developer.avid.com/ctms/api/rs_loc/rs_loc_item.html#_pa_upload_file

    and then import
