Playlist page

Start by creating a Playlist Playlist add button. Your default name is the date and the hour. You can change it immediately. You can choose if the playlist will be shared with the studio or the client and if it's a shot or asset playlist. You can also add a Task Type tag to the playlist.

Playlist add page

Once the playlist created, via the search/filter bar, you can select which shots to add to your playlist.

You can also choose to add whole movie, and it will add all the shots of the movie.

You can select Daily pending, which will add all the WFA tasks of the day.

Otherwise, you can Add the whole sequence if you want to focus only on a particular sequence.

You can use the same filter than on the global shot/asset page. For example, you can select all the WFA short for the animation stage. You have to type animation=wfa in the search bar. Valid your selection with the Add selection button. Kitsu will select the shots that have the WFA status at the Animation stage, but Kitsu will automatically load the latest uploaded version.

The shots appear on the top part of the screen. Every change are automatically saved.
