Remote video and animation reviewing in the fast-growing Autodesk Shotgun ecosystem
Cospective CineSync Pro is the latest video content editing product to build an extension to the Autodesk Shotgun video production management system. The Academy Award winning synchronized review and approval tool is already in use at several major film production companies. Connecting with the Shotgun production pipeline should see it grow in use among smaller production houses where Shotgun is becoming a standard.
The new integration comes bundled with CineSync Pro – replacing a previously separate integration package – and is available for both OSX and Windows.
The Shotgun integration consists of a Shotgun Review portal built into CineSync. Users can launch Shotgun Review directly from CineSync with no additional configuration needed, and then browse their Shotgun instance to identify clips for review. Versions and Playlists can be added from Shotgun to CineSync sessions with a single click. Any files stored in Shotgun will be automatically downloaded, while local files will be added as usual.
During the review session, CineSync users can use the built-in Shotgun Review to browse for alternate or previous Versions; to view all previous notes on Versions; and to add new Versions for review at any time, all without having to ever leave CineSync.
Once the review has been completed, CineSync users can publish any notes and drawings to Shotgun. Additionally, users can merge CineSync data with existing Shotgun data – so in cases where annotated frames have been created in CineSync, but notes have been taken in Shotgun’s Notes App, users can simply choose to combine the two.
CineSync 3.6 is available for download now from www.cinesync.com/downloads The integration is available to anyone with a CineSync Pro account.
