RV is the next stage in our effort to build great tools for VFX and animation artists. It is built on the RVX Core, a new GPU accelerated image processing architecture that combines fast IO, resolution-independent image handling, a floating point image pipeline, advanced color management, and user-programmable image processing.
RV is already proving to have great new capabilities. During our extensive beta testing, we developed a custom GLSL shader to display any out-of-gamut pixels when converting images between different color spaces.
PLAYBACK of mixed resolutions, formats, and framerates. (DPX, OpenEXR, H.264, and many more). Review in context on the desktop and in the theater.
COLLABORATE with annotation and synchronized remote review.
COMPARE shots with wipes, A/B, tiled contact sheets.
INTEGRATE with scriptable interface, remote control over the network, rich command line, and deep web integration.
CONVERT and transcode frames, movies, and audio formats.
RV for Desktop and Dailies Playback
RV is the next generation image and sequence viewer for VFX and animation artists. RV is high-performance, hardware accelerated, and pipeline-friendly. It adapts to your workflow, runs on Windows, Mac and Linux, and integrates with key tools like Nuke, Maya, Shotgun, Deadline, and Qube!
RV-SDI for the Screening Room
RV-SDI matches the flexibility of RV’s dailies sessions with full quality SDI output. RV-SDI supports dual stream output for stereo playback, embeds audio in the SDI signal, and takes advantage of RV’s flexible tools for review, editing, collaboration, annotation, and comparison of media.
RVIO Transcoding for the Renderfarm
RVIO is a standalone, command-line, image and audio pipeline tool that shares RV’s core technology. RVIO can make dailies or client reviews with custom slates and meta-data burn-in, ingest plates, and output film ready final frames. It can color correct, composite, conform, and convert, and it can run on your renderfarm or use the graphics card on your workstation.
RVX for Development of GPU Accelerated Nodes/Shaders
RVX is a special version of RV that enables users to program test, and publish GPU accelerated image processing operations to use in RV, RVIO, and RV-SDI.
Screening Room: Shotgun/RV Powered Review
Tweak and Shotgun Software have teamed up to re-think review for CG studios. Revolver provides digital studios with an all-in-one review toolset. It combines production tracking and review, making it easy for teams in any location to view their latest work in context of the cut, browse and compare iterations, annotate on images, write notes, and collaborate on work in real-time.
