Sequencer is the swiss army knife of image sequence management for Ruby. It helps with things like

  • Collapsing multibillion-files directory listings to sequence lists with sane names and sane string representations
  • Detecting gaps in image sequences
  • Renaming sequences for filename uniformity, number uniformity and so on
  • Managing image sequences as whole units for media management

Usage

From the terminal - go to a directory, and then:

 $rseqls

    Fussball_Shot[1..1, 3..3].sni
    FinalLichtUitValSec_Shot1.[1..128].jpg
    Fussball_Shot3_v02.sni
    FinalLichtUitValSec_Shot1.0001.ifl
    FinalLichtUitValSec.0001.ifl
    FinalLichtUitValSec.[1..185].jpg

You also have rseqpad and rseqrename :-)

From Ruby code, when dealing with a single file

require "sequencer"
s = Sequencer.from_single_file("/RAID/Film/CONFORM.092183.dpx")
s.file_count #=> 3201
s.gaps? #=> true
s.missing_frames #=> 15, somebody was careless
s.pattern #=> "CONFORM.%06d.dpx", usable with printf right away

and when dealing with an Enumerable of filenames (not necessarily from a file system):

require "sequencer"
seqs = Sequencer.from_enumerable(["/RAID/Film/CONFORM.092184.dpx", "/RAID/Film/CONFORM.092183.dpx"])
seqs.inspect #=> [Sequence], it is an array of sequences since the passed Enumerable might have contained multiple
s = seqs.first
s.file_count #=> 2
s.gaps? #=> false
s.missing_frames #=> 0
s.pattern #=> "/RAID/Film/CONFORM.%06d.dpx", usable with printf right away

Installation:

$ gem install sequencer
