I was wondering which software you use for your pipeline / project management?
I am part of a small independent animation studio without permanent pipeline TDs. We lack the expertise and money to create and maintain our own python pipeline managing software. That is why we have been using prism pipeline. It is robust and open source, but has a very specific folder structure and naming convention that can be confusing at times. Also, it uses a shot based folder structure and I’d like to use a steps based folder structure.
Is there a opensource pipeline tool out there with a similar modular approach as mGear? mGear has the guide components as building blocks that make up the rig templates. Maybe such a pipeline tool would also have building blocks to create different pipeline folder structures and logic for VFX, animated shorts, features, games.
Or do you work with your own scripted pipeline or commercial solutions such as shotgun or ftrack? Just found a workflow video of ftrack, which seems to do what I tried to describe above. But it would be great to read what people here are using.
Hope my question is not too much off topic :).
