Shotgun Software Announces Tank
2. Deep Shotgun Integration—Provides a link between file data and production tracking information. Interactively launch external tools from Shotgun or leverage Shotgun’s notification framework and event trigger system to keep people at every level of the production up-to-date, and to automate file-based workflows based on file or production tracking events.
3. Apps and Tank App Store—Provides more than 30 apps designed specifically with artist usability in mind, automating common pipeline functions. Loaders, publishers, and other Tank apps work out of the box. The apps are natively integrated into leading tools such as Maya, Nuke, 3ds Max, MotionBuilder, Houdini and Photoshop. Other application integration is planned, including Mari, Katana, After Effects, Softimage, Mudbox and all core tools Tank clients use in production.
4. App Development Environment— Customize Tank apps, fork them, or build your own Python apps easily using Tank’s API, then distribute them across one or more projects. Manage studio apps internally on the file system, with a repository like Git, or share with the community via built-in GitHub support.
Tank is currently in private beta with more than 20 clients. The Tank development and design team is actively partnering with the private beta clients and rapidly publishing new apps to the Tank App Store for all Tank customers to use.
