Tweak Software is to preview RV 3.12 at Siggraph 2012.
The new release of the high-performance image and sequence viewing tool, in use at Weta, ILM and Tippett Studio, includes a number of incremental features, including support for ARRI Alexa and RED RAW formats, and for playback on stereo 3D TVs.
There isn’t a lot else – but, in truth, it’s a shot review tool, and it just works. What else do you need?
