Hello there community!
The global pandemic continues to be the topic on everyone’s minds—forcing industries to evolve rapidly and explore creative solutions as studios, projects, and pipelines adapt.
I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling a little like Don Draper there and could use some #forum-friday goodness.
- Any topic on the forum related to remote work has been tagged with #wfh. You’ll see a handful of existing discussions in the #shotgun, #pipeline, and #rv categories. (If you post something related, please add the #wfh tag to your post. )
- COVID-19 Autodesk Resource Center—includes a recap of Autodesk’s overall actions in response to COVID-19 and resources for Shotgun and other Autodesk products.
- Autodesk Extended Access Program—covers details about the Shotgun extended access program
In April, we saw some outstanding contributions from the community:
- @scottballard shared two Toolkit/Pipeline Integration apps! Check out the Schema Introspection and Naming Convention topics to learn more.
- @Tetsuya_Nozawa shared their work with integrating a 3D model viewer in the browser. Really cool—check it out here!
Thanks for sharing, guys!
And, on the news front:
- @jack announced and shared two exciting features that have been rolling out: the ability to control media download links per user and allowing autocomplete entity fields to show values immediately
- On the #shotguncreate front, @warren.trezevant has been collecting feedback on the Shotgun Create Playlists Beta while also showing off the brand new ghost and hold annotations workflow
- We continue to bring more of our Release Notes process to the community forum. Shotgun web app release notes now have their own sub-category: #shotgun:release-notes. This makes it easy to react and follow for live updates. Additionally, you’ll find #pipeline, #shotguncreate, and #rv Release Notes in their respective categories under the #release-notes tag.
- The Street Team hosted office hours sessions across not one, but two weeks. Let us know if you found these helpful or would be interested in future sessions!
For those new to Forum Friday…
Forum Friday is a day where members of the Shotgun Team will be posting in the forums all day, ready to answer your questions, and talk Shotgun. Think of it as an “Ask Me Anything” session with our team and other members of the SG Community.

Starting: Friday 5PM PT (Friday 12AM UTC)
