San Francisco-based Tweak Software will preview the newest features for its RV image and sequence viewer for vfx and animation artists at SIGGRAPH in Vancouver next week. The company will unveil RV 3.12, which includes support for ARRI Alexa and RED formats, cost-effective stereo reviews using 3D TVs and a host of new features, and will also be demonstrating Python scripting for RV in Booth #963.

“RV has a dual personality. It’s a tool for artists who want refined, elegant way to work with images and it is also a customizable platform for facilities who need to integrate image review with their own tools and pipeline,” says Seth Rosenthal, co-founder of Tweak Software. “This release will have some great artist tools and will expand RV’s customization options with Python and Javascript-based web integration.”

Among the new features: Python will be added RV as a native scripting language (alongside Mu). Second, RV can now be integrated tightly with web-based tools; web pages opened inside of RV can control RV through Javascript. Both new integration techniques will be shown at SIGGRAPH. VFX and CG animation studios including Digital Domain, Aardman, ILM, Zoic Studios and many others use RV to play back and review digital media. RV’s professional, high-performance toolset is built on an open, extensible architecture allowing users to adapt the software to their own pipelines and styles of working.
