Blur Studio Deploys Shotgun Software Solutions
LOS ANGELES,CA: Shotgun Software, a game development and animation company for production management and review has announced that Blur Studio, a design, visual effects and animation company has standardized on Shotgun for production management and tracking.
With Shotgun’s web-based interface, producers, coordinators and artists at all levels can add and link data seamlessly to the database for easy access. It can also customize its internal engines and applications while maintaining Shotgun’s consistent web and user interface allowing freelance artists to use it immediately without training.
Shotgun’s database is connected to Blur’s pipeline and in-house data base that feature a common lightweight Python API, allowing Shotgun to easily link with their internal system along with core artist applications and Autodesk 3ds Max. Fully integrated for daily operations, Shotgun powers production management for an average user base of 85 artists across all Blur’s projects.
“Pipeline and infrastructure software may not be the sexiest application you’ll find in a VFX and animation studio, but it’s certainly one of the most crucial to producing great work. The less time our artists and producers spend managing the more time we can spend creating. As projects get more complicated and schedules get more challenging it’s critical to have tools to efficiently manage the huge amounts of detailed data needed to get the job done. Shotgun is both producer and artist friendly which make it in our opinion the best tool out there for helping us deliver great work,” said Tim Miller, co-founder, Blur Studio.
