ftrack has released ftrack Studio 4, the latest version of its cloud-based production-tracking system, adding support for cross-project views, and overhauling integration with Nuke Studio.

The new features will be on show at Siggraph 2018 later this month.

A versatile cloud-based production tracking system
Since its public launch in 2012, ftrack has been widely adopted within the visual effects industry: The Mill, MPC and Luma Pictures have all used it in production, along with a range of small-to-mid-sized studios.

The system, which is integrated with standard production tools from Autodesk, Foundry, Adobe and Maxon, provides a set of version-control, team-management, time-tracking, scheduling, and shot review features.

New in ftrack Studio 4: cross-project views and better integration with Nuke Studio
New features in ftrack Studio 4 include cross-project views, enabling producers to track multiple projects through a single ‘holistic view’.

According to ftrack, “new filters and attributes are accessible for additional freedom and flexibility when customizing the most efficient view for your projects”.

The platform’s integration with Nuke Studio has also been “rewritten from the ground up”, making it possible to publish EDLs and audio to ftrack, with versioning of clips and tracks.

Other changes include new light and dark themes for the UI, and a localised Simplified Chinese edition.


Updated 4 June 2019: ftrack has released ftrack Studio 4.2, the latest update to the platform.

The update brings Studio’s shot review and approval system in line with that of ftrack Review, the new ‘streamlined’ edition of the platform that rolled out commercially earlier this year.

New features include support for timeline markers, undo/redo and multi-page PDF output.

Other changes include a single-click option to make a project private, then grant access on a per-user basis; new search filters; and a number of UX improvements.

The update also raises the cloud storage capacity included in a subscription from 100GB to 250GB.

In separate news, the firm has also announced upcoming integrations for Unity and Unreal Engine.


Updated 14 September 2019: ftrack has now released the Unity and Unreal Engine integrations, plus a new integration with Illustrator, Adobe’s vector design software.

The releases take the set of integrations for ftrack Studio up to 20.

Pricing and availability
ftrack Studio 4.2 is available now. Pricing starts at $25/month/user. There is also a new Enterprise plan, which includes single sign-on and optional self-hosting, and starts at $30/month/user $40/month/user.
