Where it all began

ftrack was born 10 years ago at Fido – a VFX studio with credits on projects like Kung Fury, The Walking Dead, and Kick-Ass. Today, that studio is Goodbye Kansas. We spoke to Goodbye Kansas about how things have changed, and how ftrack remains an essential piece of the puzzle.

We recently created our 2,000th project in ftrack! We've enjoyed a close partnership with the ftrack team, and we've even been able to influence the future of the platform. We're excited to see where the company goes next!

The future and ftrack

Since 2012, we've run more than 650 projects and 150,000 tasks across 60,000 VFX shots in ftrack – and published more than 500,000 versions. That's what we call a reliable tool.
