Kitsu has an HTTP API that allows you to centralize all your data. Your CG tools can connect to it and query the data from your CG production. It helps your CG artists to manage their files and their tasks more efficiently and encourage them to spend more time focusing on the artistic side.
Building a movie is a tedious task that involves a lot of data: assets, shots, casting, task assignation, file locations and more. All this information must be shared among all the departements. Kitsu API provides you with a central storage to store all this data.
DCC plugins can easily be connected to Kitsu API. This allows you to bring your production data inside your CG tools. And because it can be hosted in-house, it provides extra confidentiality, a faster response time and availability when the internet is down.
With Kitsu Python client, it is super easy to query Kitsu API. We wanted a Python client that is simple to understand and start with. Write your code like you would write plain text and enjoy adding value to your CG tools.
We noticed that clients from major production and asset management solutions are complex to use. When dealing with the many data of CG production, it can lead to frustration and errors. Which is why we made a simple Python client. With it you can easily query the API and find the information you need.
import gazu gazu.log_in("john", os.getenv("PASSWORD", "default")) project = gazu.project.get_by_name("Big Buck Bunny") assets = gazu.asset.all_assets_for_project(project) modeling = gazu.task.get_task_type_by_name("Modeling") tasks = gazu.task.get_task_by_task_type(assets, modeling) gazu.files.build_working_file_path(tasks) > "/productions/bbb/assets/characters/bunny/modeling/bbb_bunny_modeling_v001"
Displaying the CG artist tasks and files directly in his DCC solution has never been easier. Simply include the Kitsu Python Client to your app and lay back as your tools and plugins access your production data in a second.
