8.30 Release Notes

Release date: September 28, 2021

We released the following updates since 8.29:

Introducing Resource Planning

As a Producer and Manager, you can now identify where Artists are overbooked and underutilized across the studio and departments, and can rebalance work easily. Resource Planning views leverage live data in ShotGrid, allowing you to react more quickly to the dynamic nature of production and confidently deliver projects on time and on budget.
