Tweak Software to Unveil RV 3.12 at SIGGRAPH 2011

San Francisco, Calif. - Tweak Software will preview the newest features in Version 3.12 of its RV image and sequence viewer for VFX and animation artists at SIGGRAPH 2011.

The company will unveil RV 3.12, which includes support for ARRI Alexa and RED formats, cost-effective stereo reviews using 3D TVs, and 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."

RV's role as the leading customizable playback platform gets a major advancement with two powerful new tools for extending and integrating RV. First, 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.

Leading VFX and CG animation studios, including Digital Domain, Aardman, ILM, Zoic Studios, and 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.

Tweak RV Version 3.12 is currently in Beta testing and planned for release this fall.
