We’re excited to announce the release of Gaffer 0.57.0.0, which introduces the concept of Edit Scopes. These aim to make Gaffer’s node based approach to editing feel more immediate and user friendly for everyday tasks.
As adoption of Gaffer 0.56 or later is contingent on moving to Arnold 6, we appreciate it may take a little longer to switch production shows over. People may also move directly to the the upcoming release of 0.57.
This post contains a quick recap of the main artist-facing changes in the 0.56 series for those moving up more recently.
