Venice-based Shotgun announced it has teamed up with Tweak on a new product called Revolver that provides digital studios with an all-in-one review toolset. Revolver 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.
A web-player provides access to the work from any browser or mobile device, and Tweak’s high-end native player RV is deeply integrated to provide real-time playback of high res frames from local storage at the desktop or in the screening room. Additional players like an Alembic viewer from Fabric Engine will be offered as optional apps, allowing studios to customize their ideal review pipeline.
Shotgun and Tweak will be exhibiting Revolver at NAB, April 16-19 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in booth #13416; visit for a live Revolver demonstration or go to www.shotgunsoftware.com/revolver for an online preview.
“Shotgun has become the fabric that ties our industry together,” said Seth Rosenthal, CEO of Tweak Software. “They have already done a brilliant job of foreseeing the collaborative, social, connected future of production. Revolver is the inevitable next step–we seriously hope it will help our friends and colleagues in the industry spend more time making great images and less time fighting with outmoded tools.”
“We’re working with Tweak to take review to a new level. A level where review is so seamless that studios dealing with spiking complexity are finally freed to focus on the work instead of wasting time dealing with the logistics of managing media, documents, time-zones, and data”, said Don Parker, Shotgun’s CEO. “The result is like having a personal screening room on every desk, and on any device, catering to your every need at any time of day.”
Revolver is currently in private beta with more than 30 studios and will be released publicly in early summer. Revolver will be available with a range of options to help studios customize their review pipelines. Prices start at a $19 subscription fee per user per month, or studios can opt to purchase instead. Revolver can be used with existing licenses of RV, or customers can purchase low-cost monthly RV subscriptions directly through Shotgun.
