USD Manager

USD Manager


USD Manager is an open-source, python-based Qt tool for browsing, managing, and editing text-based files like USD, combining the best features from your favorite web browser and text editor into one application, with hooks to deeply integrate with other pipeline tools. It is developed and maintained by DreamWorks Animation for use with USD and other hierarchical, text-based workflows, primarily geared towards feature film production. While primarily designed around PyQt4, USD Manager uses the compatibility library to allow working with PyQt4, PyQt5, PySide, or PySide2 for Qt bindings.

Development Repository

This GitHub repository hosts the trunk of the USD Manager development. This implies that it is the newest public version with the latest features and bug fixes. However, it also means that it has not undergone a lot of testing and is generally less stable than the production releases.


USD Manager is released under the Apache 2.0 license, which is a free, open-source, and detailed software license developed and maintained by the Apache Software Foundation.
