Blender Studio - Web app “Watchtower” for visual production tracker

Blender Studio has developed a new web application called ”Watchtower“ for the visual tracking production pipeline for animation & movies.

Watchtower was developed to be used in the production of Sprite Fright, which is an 80’s-inspired horror-comedy.  It consists of Grid ( it shows all the shots in the film ungrouped and the timeline shows all the shots and sequences as well as the task status for each task associated with a shot.)

Some of the features are:

  • Grid filters. Choose between the current sequence or timeline view.
  • Group shots. Group by sequence, task status, or assignee.
  • Asset’s view. You can see where each asset is used in the film along with all the filtering and grouping options available for shots.
  • Additionals. Assets used in the selected shot are highlighted.
