Screenshot model library in TOPs Nov. 6, 2021, 4:46 p.m.

I don't know how's the sop part of the file looks like so I could be wrong, but I could think of two things that could be causing problems:
  1. The geometry file name attribute didn't pass it to the file node in sop correctly
  2. Flipbook could have problems working with pdg since it's integrated with the viewport, use Opengl or mantra instead

Can I use OpenGL or Mantra do just do a viewport screenshot? Is there any documentation for it in the python docs do you think?

Thanks again lobachevscki for your sage advice.

Alright I figured it out. Here's the very simple solution that I'm posting here in case anyone else googles for the answer and can't quite find it.

When exporting fbx from ROP FBX node, the model is named whatever the last node in the chain is.

In my case, my model has a 'name' attribute which is the correct name for each primitive, toggling the option in "ROP FBX Output" "Build hierarchy from Path Attribute" and setting the "Path Attribute" to 'name' works great.

Here's my setup

Thanks all,
