Here at Shotgun, we're forever on a mission to make your experience easier, faster, and more secure. With Shotgun 7.4, we're bringing you performance and security updates, as well as features requested by you, the community!
BIG DATA MODE
Ready for an even faster Shotgun experience?
With an ever-growing demand for increasingly complex and VFX-heavy shots, some of you are managing thousands of shots, tens of thousands of assets, and hundreds of thousands of tasks and versions on really big projects. Record counts are calculated and shown at the bottom of pages in Shotgun by default, which - while useful - can impact page loading times for very large data sets. Improve page load times by up to 10 times with the new Big Data Mode option, which allows site admins to turn off page and record counts for large data sets.
MULTIREGION CLOUD TRANSCODING WITH AUTO-SCALING
In keeping with our vow to make Shotgun more secure, single sign-on brings everyone at the studio the convenience of only having to remember one set of credentials. IT departments can centralize access to Shotgun and oversee all permissions so that it's easy to grant, limit, and revoke user access as needed.
Since the introduction of single sign-on in release 7.2, we've continued to improve and build new functionality into Shotgun making it even easier for admins to manage site access. Shotgun 7.4 includes expanded support for single sign-on across Toolkit and Shotgun Desktop, the ability for admins to choose between logging in with their Shotgun or single sign-on credentials, and the flexibility to link an existing user account to a single sign-on account without having to manually rename it.
Need to merge multiple accounts? No problem - Shotgun support can now do that for you. This is especially useful if you have worked under two accounts (For example, john_td and john_artist) and want to combine your work history under a single account.
A new per-project task template option gives admins the ability to specify which templates are visible for each project, which will cut the clutter and make it simpler for users to select the right template to use.
