Platform Overview

Build on top of a production tracking, review, and asset management toolset for VFX, animation, and games teams of all sizes.


Managing a production takes a lot of work to keep all the moving pieces in sync.

Use our Shotgun REST API or Python API to connect directly to your data, the Event Trigger Framework to automate repetitive tasks, and Action Menu Items to launch your apps directly from Shotgun's web interface.

Check out our Developer Videos to learn more about using Shotgun.

You are encouraged to use Shotgun APIs to develop your own services, applications, modules, and components that operate on or with the Service for your own and your Authorized Users’ use. We only ask that you do not disclose (and do not permit your Authorized Users to disclose) API Information that includes authentication keys or other means that could allow users to access the Service or its functionality without a log on, or use the APIs yourself to access or allow users to access the Service or its functionality without a log on.


Toolkit is an extendable platform for integrating artist applications and tools with Shotgun. For more information, see our Toolkit Developer Overview.


Powerful desktop review gives artists and supervisors the ability to iterate faster.
