Managers, Artists, Supervisors & Developers.
Keep Track of What You're Making
Shotgun can track the things you're making, as well as key information about those things. Track all the shots in a film, assets in your shots, levels in a game, or tickets in a software project. Keeping this information in Shotgun lets people working those things pull out the key information they need to do their jobs.
Use Pages to Stay Up to Date and Organized
Pages help you organize a list of things you care about into a single view. Supervisors can build pages of the shots in the sequence they're managing, and producers can build pages of the tasks in the project. Pages stay up to date as information changes, so you never have to worry about having the wrong version of a spreadsheet or copying information from one document to another.
Answer Questions Quickly With Powerful Search Tools
When you're trying to find out how many tasks are overdue or shots were delivered yesterday, Shotgun helps you get answers. Simply search for something by typing its name, or use advanced filters to help you narrow the list of results. If you find yourself doing the same search over and over again, you can save a page to make a live report that dynamically stays up to date.
Know Who's Working on What and When
Keep track of who's working on what project at the studio and when they're on vacation. The Crew Planning app let's you see who's busy and who's available in one click. Drag and drop makes it simple to create new bookings for people and keep them up to date. You'll avoid double-bookings and assigning tasks to people on vacation.
Visualize Projects Across the Studio
Our Project Timeline app lets you schedule important project phases and milestones to help you see what's happening across the studio at a high level. You'll be able to see how your projects stack up so you can make better decisions about how much work you take on or when you'll need more.
Use Tasks to Keep Track of the Work
Tasks help you track all the work that needs to get one on the project. You can attach tasks to things you're working on, like shots and assets. Tasks are like virtual workrooms where people can see their notes, view their files and publishes, and see their due dates. Managers see the full task list and schedule on a gantt chart.
Submit and Organize Movies and Images
As people work on parts of the project, they can submit movies and images of their work in progress files to Shotgun where others can review them. Organize multiple submissions into a playlist then launch that playlist in the Screening Room app.
Review, Annotate, and Make Notes Without Jumping Through Hoops
With scrubbable filmstrip thumbnails, integrated full-screen playback of any uploaded movie, and a full suite of annotation tools, you can review as fast as you see the new submissions. Type your notes, then hit send. Artists will receive an email with your annotated images so they know exactly what you want.
Enjoy Your Own Personal Screening Room
The Screening Room app lets you browse and playback movies either in playlist or cut order. Because Shotgun stores information about the sequences you're working on, Screening Room can string together movies in the cut order and cut length. Always have access to the latest cut and save your editor precious time.
All the People at Your Studio, Working Together
Everyone at your studio has an account in Shotgun so you can send each other notes, collaborate on the schedule, or review your work together.
The Inbox allows you to see activity on all the things that are important to you and your work. You can also receive desktop and email notifications every time something important happens to things you care about.
Everything in Shotgun has an activity stream that shows all of its interesting activity. This lets people stay up to date on what others are doing on the project. You can even follow people to receive updates about their work in your Inbox.
Shotgun’s lightweight Python API makes it quick and painless to write code that accesses your production data. Studios use the API to connect their existing systems and artist applications to Shotgun and automate manual steps in their pipeline.
Tank Asset Management
Tank is our take on asset management, which we've designed for artists and engineered for developers. It keeps the file system organized, provides artists with one-click launchers from their tasks into their applications like Maya, Nuke, and Photoshop, and handles all the file naming based on configurations you specify.
Application Integrations and Tank Apps
Tank is designed to integrate natively into Maya, Nuke, Photoshop, and many more of the applications you use to do amazing work. Tank apps are designed to give artists access to important pipeline functions: such as building scenes, checking file versions, snapshot and publishing work, or submitting to dailies.
