Cospective announced the commercial release of cineSync 3.6, featuring the 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.
Once the review has been completed, 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,” said 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.”
