Python 3 implementation – Streamlining your creative process

At the heart of creating exceptional entertainment is the need for consistency and efficiency. That’s why we align ftrack development with the latest VFX Reference Platform standards.

The VFX Reference Platform aims to standardize processes within the VFX industry and foster a more streamlined development environment, enabling creatives to focus less on the tools they use and more on delivering great work.

Central to our efforts in aligning with the VFX Reference Platform is ftrack’s adoption of Python 3. This significant upgrade is now fully implemented, boosting ftrack’s performance, security, and stability. Importantly, Python 3 also paves the way for quicker feature updates in the future, hopefully helping you to achieve high-quality results more efficiently.

Here’s how Python 3 improves your ftrack Studio experience:

  • Smoother operations: With Python 3, you’ll notice an improvement in how quickly and smoothly queries run in ftrack. Python 3 also paves the way for even more enhancements in the future. This means less waiting and more doing.
  • Robust security: The upgrade helps us apply security measures more efficiently, allowing us to protect your data more effectively and keep your data safer per our rigorous security standards.
  • Quicker access to new features: Thanks to Python 3, we can leverage more modern development tools and libraries, which means we can roll out new and improved features faster. This means more tools at your disposal to drive creativity and efficiency.
  • Greater stability: Python 3 helps provide a more stable and reliable system, ensuring you have a dependable platform for all your production tracking needs.

We’re pleased to bring these improvements to you and are confident they will significantly impact your day-to-day operations.
