  1. To Whom It may concern:

    I attempted to install the TIK application multiple times on windows 10 pro but it didn’t begin the installation. Is there a support forum available to post error messages or questions?

    Thank you,

    • Hi Chris,

      You may need to disable your virus software before installation. Some av softwares gives a false positive for it. This is related with the PyInstaller (the library which I use to turn python files to executables)
      If you write down your error messages I can help you further. You can join the facebook group as well for Q&A:

  2. This looks pretty good, thank you so much for the time and effort put into it.
    Is there any support for sequence-shot based workflow other than just naming your animation files with the shot names?

    • Thank you Spiderman,

      Actually sequence-shot based workflow is a little bit complex for small teams and individuals since it needs more nested folders. I agree it is a more suitable approach for relatively bigger projects but what I try to do is keep things simple as possible and a tool that doesn’t need to be learned. However, I am searching to expand the usage as the way you suggested without compromising simplicity. I would like to hear the ideas about the subject.
