Production Management at the Blender Studio - New Blender Kitsu Addon


Blender Studio's Sprite Fright is its most ambitious Open Movie project yet, one that requires pipeline and production tracking solutions to match. In a post on the Blender Cloud blog, Blender Studio's pipeline TD Paul Golter outlines the addon he developed to integrate Kitsu, the studio's open-source production manager/tracker, directly into Blender.

A few weeks ago, Francesco Siddi announced the Blender Studio's switch to Kitsu as the main production tracking solution for the Sprite Fright project, citing the vigorous development and support offered by its creators, its open-source nature, as well as its easy to use web interface.
