8.26 Release Notes

Release date: June 7, 2021


We’re excited to announce that Shotgun has been renamed ShotGrid as part of this release ! Though Shotgun will have a new name, it will bring the same power to animation, VFX, and games pipelines.

Easier, centralized account management

ShotGrid contract owners and primary admins will manage their accounts through the Autodesk Account with the adoption of Autodesk identity and Autodesk licensing.

See the Shotgun Integration FAQ for more information.
