cineSync 3.6 to Shotgun Integration Opens a Window on Remote Reviews

A new integration between remote review and approval tool cineSync and Shotgun production tracking, review and asset management software, has now become available with the release of cineSync version 3.6. The new integration comes bundled with cineSync Pro, replacing a previously separate integration package, and appears as a Shotgun Review portal built into the cineSync interface. Users can launch Shotgun Review directly from cineSync with no extra configuration, and then browse their Shotgun instance to identify clips for review. 


Versions and Playlists can be added from Shotgun to cineSync sessions in one step. 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 - without having to leave cineSync.

Once the review has been completed, cineSync users can publish any notes and drawings to Shotgun. Users can also 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 choose to combine the two.

This integration has been available as a private beta since NAB 2015. Since then several companies have adopted this workflow and found that it saves them time. cineSync 3.6 is available for download now to people with a cineSync Pro account.
