Tweak Software to Unveil RV 3.12 at SIGGRAPH 2011

--New release supports stereo 3D TVs, ARRI Alexa and RED formats--
--Booth demonstrations feature first look at Python and Web integration for RV--

San Francisco, CA (August 1, 2011) -- Tweak Software will be previewing the newest features for 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 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," said 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 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. Highlights of the new RV 3.12 release include:

Presentation mode -- Display a full screen view on one monitor while controlling playback from another.
Stereo 3D TV support for HDMI 1.4a and DVI – Use cost-effective stereo TVs for stereo reviews with RV.
Javacript Web Integration: Integrate RV with web based tools using Javascript
ARRI Alexa ARRIRAW file support -- High dynamic range, full color support for ALEXA is now integrated into RV’s tools for playback, dailies and transcoding.
RED RAW file support -- V3.12 includes the first level of RED file support integration.
ACES files and color spaces – RV supports the Academy Color Encoding Specification (IIF ACES) including the ability to write .aces files from RVIO.
CDL support – Color Decision List values can now be specified in an RV session file.
Next-level integration – Nuke and Shotgun integration both include a host of updates and refinements.

Tweak RV Version 3.12 is currently in Beta testing and planned for release this fall. For more information visit:
