As a pipeline TD you might need to setup task status auto updates in Shotgun. It isn’t as simple as it may sound, because Shotgun, out of the box, doesn’t provide this functionality. However, it can be done with Shotgun Event Daemon and some scripting.

So, first off, a bit of background. As a pipeline guy, automation is essential. You need processes to work automatically, ideally in context and further more in a certain order. That happens all the time. Shotgun, and many other tools, provides a great backend for such automation, however, Shotgun itself doesn’t provide too much automation for its own tasks, versioning, events in general.

Luckily for us there is a large community of TDs working on such tools that can save us a ton of time and effort. (more…)

Shotgun

I’ve done quite lot of work with teams using Shotgun, the production tracker, and I’d like to share some of my experiences, tips, tricks and how-tos in context of a Technical Director gluing everything together in a pipeline full of various tools using mainly Python and also MAXScript.

I hope to keep this section of my blog alive as much as possible, so, please, stay tuned. :)
