8.4 Release Notes

Release date: July 9, 2019

Shotgun 8.4 is all about optimizing your workflows.

Using Shotgun Create

You can now launch Shotgun Create via the Shotgun web app.

Open Shotgun Create

Importing data in Shotgun

Importer

The Shotgun Importer now supports:

  • Excel files,
  • Ability to drag and drop or copy and paste structured data,
  • Bulk addition of thumbnails to new and existing records, and
  • More flexible field mapping.

The Importer has also been updated so now you:

  • Only see the steps you actually need for adding data,
  • Have the option of going back through steps without losing your progress, and
  • Can continue to import your data even if there are errors (by skipping errors and importing rather than having to start over and fixing everything).

Uploading files directly to Amazon S3

File uploads can now go directly to Amazon S3 for storage, instead of via an intermediate Shotgun server. This change:

  • Guarantees security and file retention, and
  • Improves the overall system performance

For large files or during high load, thumbnails may take a while to appear. In some cases, you may need to refresh the page to display the thumbnails.

API users should consult our developer docs and review any existing code that handles thumbnails.
