VeraciBot - VeracityColab
VeraciBot is a multi-purpose proprietary tool we built for the artists at VeracityColab.
The desktop app, lived on the artist's machine, and had custom-built modules for capturing screenlapses, tracking system performance, and syncing shared files across the company.
The Screenlapse module allows artists to add their creative applications to a list (e.g. Photoshop, After Effects), set a time interval, and when enabled, VeraciBot will capture images at that interval and save them to the user-specified destination. This came in handy for behind the scenes videos to show Veracity’s artists’ progress over time on key projects.
The File Syncing feature allows the user to choose from pre-defined source/destination sync options to sync files from the server to their local machines. This made sharing Animation Presets, LUTs, and Export Presets super easy. Artists would simply drop their own preset onto the server, and it would instantly sync to all their co-worker’s machines.
The Performance Monitor module tracks and stores the user’s system statistics including CPU, RAM, GPU, and disk usage. This helped identify what aspects of performance were maxing out and needed an upgrade, and also help troubleshoot the causes of system crashes.
