I'd like to poll the members here to find out if there would be any interest in an open-source version of ShotRunner? This would allow people to download and modify the source, contribute fixes/enhancements, and also run a version locally. I would continue to offer a fully hosted option.
ShotRunner is written using Ruby on Rails. We just completed a migration to Rails 3.0. There is a Python API. It utilizes Amazon S3 for file storage, Zencoder for video encoding, and SendGrid for outbound email notifications.
What are the considerations in doing this? I imagine it could open up some security concerns. Would anyone in VFX-land actually be able to make use of the source?
I might be interested if I knew what I could do with it. What exactly is it for?
I haven't tried this program yet. I hope it works, because I might need it.
ShotRunner is actually a pretty cool tool. I just don't have as much time to mess with it as I would like.
