Cospective’s cineSync 3.6 Adds Shotgun Integration

Cospective and Shotgun join forces to offer VFX, animation and post studios a faster way of working with built-in Shotgun Review portal built directly into cineSync.

Cospective has announced the commercial release of cineSync 3.6, featuring the brand new integration between remote review and approval tool cineSync and Shotgun production tracking, review and asset management software. The new integration comes bundled with cineSync Pro -- replacing a previously separate integration package -- and is available for both OSX and Windows.

The Shotgun integration consists of a Shotgun Review portal built into cineSync. Users can launch Shotgun Review directly from cineSync with no additional configuration needed, and then browse their Shotgun instance to identify clips for review. Versions and Playlists can be added from Shotgun to cineSync sessions with a single click. Any files stored in Shotgun will be automatically downloaded, while local files will be added as usual. 

During the review session, cineSync users can use the built-in Shotgun Review to browse for alternate or previous Versions; to view all previous notes on Versions; and to add new Versions for review at any time, all without having to ever leave cineSync.

Once the review has been completed, cineSync users can publish any notes and drawings to Shotgun. Additionally, users can merge cineSync data with existing Shotgun data -- so in cases where annotated frames have been created in cineSync, but notes have been taken in Shotgun’s Notes App, users can simply choose to combine the two.

“The early reaction to this integration has been amazing," says Cospective CEO Rory McGregor. “It’s been available as a private beta since NAB 2015, so many companies have already adopted this new workflow and find that it saves them so much time. We’re excited to be able to offer this to all of our customers from today.”

“Simplifying the entire review process is a big focus for us, and cineSync is being used by most of our clients already,” says Shotgun’s CEO Don Parker. “We’ve worked closely with Rory and his team for years, and are excited to deliver pre-integrated tools that work out of the box. We are all about helping remote creative teams work together like they’re all in the same room – cineSync is an important part of making that work.”

cineSync 3.6 is available for download now from The integration is available to anyone with a cineSync Pro account. Free trials are available via (link sends e-mail).
