VANCOUVER — Shotgun Software (www.shotgunsoftware.com) is at SIGGRAPH with a preview of Version 3.0 of its production management and collaboration system. The upcoming release will include features that make it faster and easier for VFX, animation and video game studios to manage productions and collaborate.
Shotgun V.3.0 has re-written and polished navigation that simplifies the way data is organized and explored. A new visual filter tool panel makes it faster for users to understand the big picture and find the answers they need, and new advanced layout tools provide studios with more control over how their information is displayed.
The company is showing existing integration with RV, Deadline and Qube! at its booth, along with two new integration projects: Rush will update Shotgun automatically for each render, storing thumbnails and critical information that can be organized into playlists for review; and CineSync Online integration makes it easy to start a synchronized review session.
V.3.0 will be available in September. The Rush and CineSync Online integrations are in private beta testing and planned for release this fall.
