In the following articles, you will learn about the Experimental features of ftrack Studio.

These features are still in development and not ready for full release but can be enabled on your site to try now. While a feature is included as β€œexperimental”, we welcome your participation and any feedback you may have so we can consider ways to improve them.

Please note: Some of these features may contain bugs and change or disappear without notice, so please plan accordingly. We don’t recommend complete reliance on an experimental feature until it has been fully tested and released. They are best for test projects and workflow experimentation (unless otherwise communicated to the customer).
