Hello everyone, I am trying to implement Shotgun in our studio environment for a few months now. Right now we manage scheduling tasks, milestones and review everything within the Shotgun environment. The next step for me is to integrate file management by Shotgun so all scene data is handled by the system. Not a coder here - rather a supervisor, so I do not have full grasp of what is needed for taking the leap.
It’s a good time to mentioned that I am looking for someone to work as a freelance workflow technician to setup everything workflow and code-wise. Later on working with us on maintenance with our IT on freelance basis. Shouldn’t be often. All can be done remotely.
The biggest logical problem I have right now is the fact that our studio is 50% onsite full time artists and 50% freelance artists that are hired for a specific project. Freelancers work remotely.
I think that the percentage over upcoming years will lean more towards remote freelancers to around 75% of the workforce.
What options do I have in general to have Shotgun manage the files in more cloud/distributed fashion, so the scenes will open at every freelancers house computer with their synced copy of the files. For less automated workflow - just file exchanging we use Dropbox Business. Is this still viable solution to integrate it with shotgun or shall I look at other resources.
The thing is that I do not want for the proces of syncing and setting up to be too complicated and time consuming on our freelance artist side. That would discourage them from working with us on more frequent basis.
Any ideas will be greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance
