Movie resolution, uncompressed playback with high dynamic range of RAM or hard disk
RV is a professional high-performance playback and reviewing application optimized for playback directly from hard disk and cache RAM. So RV works everywhere, from the desktop to the digital theater.
Support for industry standard images
OpenEXR, DPX, Cineon, JPEG, Tiff, Targa, JPEG 2000, H.264, ARRIRAW, RED, and Photo / Motion JPEG Quicktime formats are among the industry standard formats that RV supports by default , I / O can be provided with multiple threads (with any number of cores) for all image types. For formats that are often used for direct playback from the hard drive, I / O options are provided to maximize performance.
Native integration of Nuke, Maya and Shotgun
RV works directly with Nuke, Maya and Shotgun. RV integration goes beyond traditional flipbook workflows, combining the power and flexibility of RV media handling with leading CG and VFX tools.
Mix resolutions, color spaces, file formats, and frame rates on a single timeline
RV's advanced media engine adjusts the size of your media, re-formats, re-maps and manages them in color in real-time. So you can mix sources without additional work. Animators can compare reference videos at each frame rate with their recordings at 24 frames per second, supervisors can overlay 2K renderings via storyboards or animation takes at half resolution, editors can crop the latest versions with DPX, Exr and Quicktimes of various resolutions.
Annotation / Paint
Annotation works through sync for remote reviews, or you can use it in daily papers and desktop scans. Save your notes in the session file or export them as snapshots or movies (RVIO license required).
Audio Scrubbing / Stepping and Timeline Magnifier with Waveform Display
RV mixes any number of audio inputs and plays them in sync with video. RV maintains the pitch of your audio while you change the frame rate, so your soundtrack remains recognizable. RV's Timeline Magnifier displays your waveform and lets you zoom in on a portion of the Timeline.
Multi-layer image processing
RV processes multi-layered image files like OpenEXR. You can choose which layer to show and cache, and compare layers to A / B sheets or layouts.
3D stereo reproduction is a matter of course for RV. Everything you can do with a picture, you can do with stereo images. RV supports: shutter glasses, HDMI 1.4a, DLP projectors, cross polarized televisions, anaglyphs, old eye intersections (and more). RVIO, RV's batch engine, handles stereo just as easily as RV. It can create Quicktime stereo files with multiple tracks and OpenEXR stereo files, or rip stereo sources to individual images per eye.
High Dynamic Range Pixel Management
RV can be connected for remote checks over a network. Annotations, Play / Stop, Scrub, Zoom / Pan, Color Corrections, Stereo Offset, and more can be sent or received between subscribers. RV can create a "sync link" that you can insert into the chat so other artists can connect immediately and review the same media.
High dynamic range image data is now commonplace and RV is the right tool for viewing. The image data is stored in the best internal representation for examination and playback: 8- or 16-bit fixed-point integral and 16- and 32-bit floating point images can be mixed. For example, you can shred high-bit-depth movie images to lower accuracy to have more cache space, or keep full 32-bit float data in memory to experiment with changes in exposure in real time.
Scripts, customize, extend and integrate
New tools for color management and color pipeline
RV's new color tools have taken color management to the next level. The color pipeline can be fully configured with any mix of color transformations in any order. RV Comes with a library of single color operations (and inverses), eg. Kodak Log, sRGB, Rec709, Matrix, CDL. These transformations can be concatenated and inserted at multiple locations in the RV image processing pipeline.
Real-time color correction
RV's sophisticated color processing system supports accurate color management with built-in support for:
– Movie (Kodak Log, Viper Log)
– HDTV color space (Rec709)
– Color space of the HD reference monitor (Rec709)
– Computer monitor workspaces (sRGB, gamma)
– Unique display devices such as digital cinema projectors (with HDR-LUTs)
Color corrections are done in real-time using your graphics hardware. The most important and commonly used transfer functions such as Kodak Log, sRGB, Rec.709 and Basic Gamma are integrated for maximum accuracy when used with HDR images. Real-time color adjustments affect the full range of your images.
Start RV from Links Anywhere
RV can be started via links in web pages, e-mails, documents and chat windows. This makes it easy to integrate RV into your workflow, whether you have an advanced production tracking system like Shotgun or your own internal workflow. RV links are special URLs that have the full power of the RV command-line interface, including the ability to control RV through the scripting language. For example, you can start RV to A / B, compare two takes, tile a directory of images, or even automatically synchronize with another user for a remote review.
Sequences, EDLs and Frame Marking
With RV, you can easily work with multiple image sequences, movies and still images. You can drag and drop multiple clips from the command line or by reading a text-based EDL. Use RV to highlight the timeline to quickly navigate using keyboard shortcuts. For example, a movie in a sequence may be tagged at the capture boundaries, allowing you to jump from shot to shot or create a loop over each shot.
