The Blender Studio has been steadily revealing the tools that have spawned from the production of their latest Open Movie, Sprite Fright. Having such little production gems released to the public is one of the particularities of the Open Movie format that make it so useful to the community at large. The latest of such tools is Watchtower, a visual and highly responsive production tracking tool.
