Demos

Welcome to Tweak TV !

 

Hello out there.  We're trying something new to spread the word about some of the features of RV that we're most proud of.  Below you'll find several video demonstrations, with a few notes. Below each demo, there's a link to a corresponding topic on our forums, where we eagerly await your comments.  Please feel free to let us know what you think of the demos, what subjects you'd like to see in the future, etc.


Thanks for watching.

 

RV/Shotgun Integration

After almost a year of work the integration package has been released. You can read more about it here or watch this great intro video that Don at Shotgun made to show off the new integration features.

 

As I'm sure you know, Shotgun is a digital production tracking and collaboration system, and it's awesome.  Like RV it's engineered from the ground up by industry veterans to provide both a standard solution to a production pipeline need, and to put so much control and extensibility in the user's hands that it can fit into almost any studio's existing infrastructure. 

 

 Asset Pixel Inspector Proof of Concept Demo

 

 One of the most common ways to waste production time is to review shots that have the wrong stuff in them. This is particularly bad in dailies reviews where the whole crew  can end up sitting through a long discussion of shot, only to realize at the end that the model was an old version or the new lighting did not make it into the render. This video shows an approach to avoiding these kinds of mistakes by using a special pixel inspector in RV that can look up information about the shot by indexing into a separate false-color image layer. Please note, this is not a production ready tool, it's a quick hack to demonstrate the concept.

 

The code is simply a modified version of the RV color inspector. It took longer to roto the background image than it did to modify the RV color inspector to work this way. We like these kinds of production solutions because they are fundamentally low tech but can have a big impact on production. If your tools are flexible and customizable like RV, these kinds of solutions are easy to implement.
