Running a Plugin
To run a plugin, there are several possibilities:
From the Plugins Menu, each plugin loaded in Pixyz Studio is displayed in a sub-menu named as the plugin (module). From that sub-menu, choose the plugin function you wish to run:
A plugin can also be run through a shortcut.
Import/Export in Pixyz Studio
Running a plugin that integrates Import/Export functions in Pixyz Studio will lead to a Captcha mechanism being raised at each function call.
It is because importing and exporting files is possible using the Python API (see the "IO" module in the API Reference), but is limited in Pixyz Studio, as batching files is not allowed (see Terms & Conditions).
Pixyz Scenario Processor is the Pixyz dedicated tool for batching/automation purposes.
TIP Executing an Import/Export function in a plugin (not a script) can be done once per plugin execution without a Captcha being raised. This is for example for users/developers wishing to create their own import dialog (like the Guided import). Also using the io.importFiles() function is a way to import multiple files all at once (allowing the import process to be parallelized, in most cases).
