NAB 2015: Shotgun 6 Announced
Amid the announcements coming out of NAB today, Shotgun Software announced the latest version of their popular production and asset management tool. Here's the press release:
Las Vegas, NV (April 13, 2015) -- Today at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show 2015 in Las Vegas, NV, Shotgun Software unveiled Shotgun 6 and RV 6 which now work together without any required end-user configuration. Shotgun is the cloud-based production tracking, review and asset management software for film, TV and games, recently expanded via acquisition with RV, the widely adopted desktop image and sequence player. Shotgun 6 will now include direct access to RV 6 at no extra cost to users, with the latest releases of both Shotgun 6 and RV 6 also offering new features to boost production efficiency. "Just months after bringing our friends from Tweak on board and announcing a new pricing model, weve built some really great new functionality into both Shotgun and RV that helps artists and supervisors collaborate around their work much faster," said Don Parker, co-founder of Shotgun and Autodesk senior director. "Including RV as part of Shotgun and adding RVX and RVIO at no additional cost is a win-win for all of our customers. Were excited to be showing it at NAB."
New Features in Shotgun 6: -- RV in Shotgun:Download, install and start using RV with your existing Shotgun login. No extra fees, no need for a separate license, and accessible in a single click with no configuration. -- New Project Templates: Templates help you manage different workflows for different projects, such as films, episodic TV series, or games. -- Enhanced Navigation and Browsing: Choose how you organize the items youre tracking (i.e. Shots by Sequence, or Asset by Type), then navigate between them using Shotgun's new navigation widget. -- Improved Flame Integration: Transfer content from Flame into Shotgun faster and more reliably. -- Updated Loader: Artists can now find and load files faster directly from inside of their creative tools, such as Maya, 3ds Max and Nuke, using the new list view in the Toolkit Loader app. New in RV 6: -- Shotgun Login:A new licensing option allows users to access RV using their Shotgun username and password. -- Built-in RVX Functionality: RV now includes features previously only available in RVX such as the ability to author image-processing operations - everything from simple color transforms to multi-input compositions and editorial transitions. -- Export using RVIO: Users can now export movies or frame sequences with RVIO while running RV.
