7.0 Release Notes

Shotgun 7.0 features new tools and improvements aimed at simplifying editorial workflows. The new tools help you import and track cut data and review it in the browser or RV, so you can spend more time creating and less time trying to stay on top of cut changes. Shotgun's web and RV review tools are now editorial-aware, making it easier than ever to get cut information into Shotgun and review your work in context of a Cut.

Import Cut App 

The Import Cut App in RV gives users the ability to publish editorial information directly to Shotgun. Simply drag in an EDL (CMX3600) and we'll take care of parsing the data and publishing it to Shotgun.

If you have a base layer—or cut reference—movie that reflects the EDL, you can also upload that when importing. The base layer movie makes it possible to view a complete Cut even if work hasn't started or isn't planned on that portion of the Cut—common in Cuts with non-VFX shots or when sharing work across studios. This also cuts down on additional shot tracking overhead by removing the need to create placeholder Shots in Shotgun in order to see an entire cut.

A summary of Cut changes lets you know what has changed and can quickly be shared across the team. 

    

Using Toolkit? Updated Flame and Heiro/Nuke Studio integrations let users publish editorial information directly into Shotgun from their favorite creative apps.

Learn all about Importing a Cut.

View Cuts Anywhere

The Media App gets a new Cuts tab that lets you browse for Cuts with the hierarchy view. From there, launch your Cut in the browser or RV.

While the Media App is your one stop shop for all things review, the Cut is always at your fingertips wherever you see a playable thumbnail in Shotgun.

Find out more about browsing Cuts.

Tune Your Cut

View the entire Cut or focus on a subsection of the Cut with handy Mini Cut controls.

Apply powerful filters—or select a specific Shot Version—to fine tune what shows up in the Cut so you can review the media you care most about, like “latest”, “latest animation” or “latest approved”.

Access a full history of all Cuts on a project, including overlapping Cuts such as 30/60/90 second Cuts on commercial projects or a trailer Cut on a film or television project.

Get all the details about playing Cuts in Shotgun.

More Efficient Review Sessions

Shotgun and RV 7.0 can also make your review sessions more efficient by providing quick access to the Cut from a playlist. Prep your playlist, play it in the browser or RV, and then jump between the Shot Version in the playlist and the Cut without ever leaving the player.

Updated Shotgun+RV Integration

RV’s revamped review tools are built on top of the new embedded ‘Toolkit as a plugin’ technology stack—which results in a faster and more stable review experience in RV. (And, don't worry, if you're using the existing Shotgun+RV integration, you can opt into the new package when you're ready and on your own timeline.)

Get the full details.

API Ready

A new data model for cut information is fully exposed in Shotgun’s API, meaning studios and developers can deeply integrate with Shotgun's editorial-aware review tools.

Learn the ins and outs of the Cut Data Model.

And one last thing... 

We’ve continued our work around styling by making all of the colors used in Shotgun draw from a consistent palette. UIs should look cleaner, crisper, and more consistent. This is the start of many small projects aimed at giving Shotgun a consistent, modern look and feel. The changes will be small and iterative, and we’d love your feedback along the way! Here are the areas you’ll notice changed the most:

  • Pages now have a flatter, more consistent look and feel
  • Global and Project Navigation toolbars also have a flatter look and feel
  • Entity creation dialogues have less shadows and less contrast between borders and text inputs
  • Admin areas such as Site Preferences and Permissions show greater contrast between sections

Deployment Details

Shotgun 7.0 was released to the majority of hosted sites on Sunday, July 31st. Some hosted sites are scheduled for the following weekend due to their unique Shotgun site setup. These clients have been contacted directly about upgrade timing. (If you didn't hear from us, drop us a line to update your contact information.) Local Installation upgrades upgrade timing information will be available in the coming weeks.

7.0.13.0 (Tues Mar 14, 2017)

Bugs

  • Thumbnails on the Published File entity could not be updated. This fix re-enables that functionality. [21636]
  • When pausing playback on the Overlay Player, the frame displayed was off by one frame. This fix displays the correct frame when stopping playback. [37788] [40028]
  • Users were able to see Action Menu Items for restricted projects, even when they did not have access to those projects. This fix ensures that users only see Action Menu Items when they have the correct permissions. [38513]
  • Shotgun API calls to threads that contained replies by retired users resulted in an error. This fix ensures ‘note_thread_read’ works correctly. [38734]
  • Admins used to be able to save empty Project Navigations. This fix provides a pop up error message, ensuring that Admins save at least one page to their Project Navigation. [39902]
  • Android devices should now respect IP whitelisting rules, when enabled in the Client Review Site. This fix ensures thumbnails are displayed properly. [40703]
  • Certain error messages caused the login page to fail to load. This fix ensures that the login page always loads. [40943]
  • Certain Project pages, when deleted, did not appear in the Trash, so users could not unretire them. This fix lists all deleted Pages in the Trash so they can be restored if necessary. [41001]

 

7.0.12.1 (Mon Feb 27, 2017)

Bugs

  • Users were unable to preview PSD files that were attached to Notes in the Lightbox Viewer. This fix ensures PSD files load when clicking on the attachment thumbnail of a Note. [39308]

 

7.0.12.0 (Wed Feb 22, 2017)

Features/Polish

  • The Shotgun API has a new ‘following’ method. This makes it possible to return a list of entity instances that a user is following. [40631]

Bugs

  • When editing a single entity field, pressing the left or right arrow keys would clear the field. This fix ensures no data is cleared and that arrow keys can continue to be used for navigation. [37997]
  • The “New Features” link in the dropdown user menu now redirects to the release notes page on the Shotgun support site. [40469]
  • The error dialog’s ‘mail to’ link would not open an email client from Chrome. This fix updates the link so it’s possible to email error details to support. [40760]
  • Query fields in Pipeline Steps were not displaying a value. This fix updates how these fields are calculated, ensuring they appear correctly. [39860]
  • Adding a linked field to Pipeline Step columns would generate an error if column summaries were enabled on the page. This fix allows those linked fields to be displayed. [40213]
  • Query fields in Pipeline Step columns were displaying individual summaries, but not group summaries for column summaries. This fix displays both summaries. [40483]

  • A new Advanced Site Preference called “Storage location for uploaded files” allows Admins to choose a geographic location for new uploaded files. Sites using this preference may experience faster media uploads and downloads. [39408]

Optimization

  • Improved the speed at which the “Last Accessed” query field on the Project entity loads. [40194]

Bugs

  • Creating a single entity link field on a connection entity caused sites to stop loading. This fix ensures all entity associations on connection entities work. [39304]

7.0.10.0 (Wed Jan 25, 2017)

  • In the Overlay Player, if there were more than four Versions in the Related Versions tab, the name and field headers went missing. This fix displays all names and field headers. [21836]
  • Trying to access locally stored files with non-ASCII characters in the name would generate an error. This fix allows files with any unicode characters in the name to be uploaded and accessed from Shotgun. [37797]

7.0.9.0 (Wed Jan 18, 2017)

Bugs

  • In Firefox on Linux, the search text box overlapped with the Filter panel button. This fix properly aligns the icon. [39130]
