(February 9, 2015) Tweak Software, developer of RV, an image and sequence playback tool, has been acquired by Autodesk and will be joining forces with Shotgun Software. Effective immediately, the Tweak and Shotgun teams will be working together to advance review and collaboration technology to equip visual effects, games and animation artists and supervisors with the tools they need to do their best work in a rapidly changing industry.
The entire Tweak staff is joining Autodesk, continuing to work as a unit in the Shotgun team under the leadership of Tweak’s Jim Hourihan, Seth Rosenthal and Alan Trombla, in close partnership with Shotgun’s Don Parker. In addition for looking for new avenues to further integration between RV, Shotgun and Autodesk, Tweak will continue to develop, support and sell RV as an open and pipeline agnostic tool. Please read the Shotgun blog for additional information and for the official FAQ.
