Kitsu exposes an HTTP API that allows you to centralize and access to all your data. Your tools connect to it and query the data from your production. The artists tools are enhanced. It helps them to focus on the artistic side of their work.
Fast to learn Python client
Cloud-based or on-premises
Integrations with your DCC tools
DCC plugins can easily be connected to Kitsu API. This allows you to bring your production data inside your tools. And because it can be hosted in-house, it provides extra confidentiality, a faster response time and availability when the internet is down.
The Python client for Kitsu is really useful for a TD. I was able to code quickly tailor-made tools for production and leads. Thank you for leaving Kitsu open to other software!
When you need details about a given entity, you can access them easily. Run full text queries on your database to find quickly assets or persons. Users don't need to look into lists or remember complex names. The first letters of the entity name are enough.
Building a movie involves a lot of data: assets, shots, casting, task assignation, file locations and more. All this information must be shared among all the departments. Kitsu API provides you with central storage for all this data. And it can be queried from anywhere.
