What I think is the minimum that needs to be in the ‘artist’ view. When it opens up
- List of instances and ability to toggle them on and off. (practically the same as instances now, but maybe nicer design.)
- Any optional extractors
When it runs
- progress bar, ideally stating what it’s just doing
After it finishes
- Any failed plugins so we can run actions on them, look at the problems and deal with them.
Actually concerning the plugins that show up in the ‘artist’ view. A simple flag in the plugin stating if it should show might be ideal.
artist_view = True just like we use order, optional etc. That way developer could control what the artist will see. I might want to show them for example extractors that get the main data out as .abc, .obj. .ma, where some of those might be optional but not necessarily.
