Executing a script or plugin that integrates import/export functions in Pixyz Studio will lead to a Captcha mechanism being raised at each import/export function call.

It is because importing and exporting files is possible using the Python API, but is limited in Pixyz Studio, as batching files is not allowed (see Terms & Conditions).

Pixyz Scenario Processor is the Pixyz dedicated tool (replacing Pixyz Batch) for batching/automation purposes.

Nonetheless, plugins integrating import/export functions can be run in Pixyz Studio for testing purposes, when creating a Scenario plugin meant to be deployed in Pixyz Scenario Processor.

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).

How To

The following import/export functions, part of the "IO" module of the scripting API, can be used to import/export files:
