Available Now: Shotgun 6 & RV 6 - Now Including RV for Free!

Apr 29, 2015



We’re excited to officially release Shotgun 6 and RV 6, which now includes RV native review player at no extra cost for all Shotgun subscribers and set up easier than ever before.

With Shotgun 6, RV 6 is now included at no additional cost. Subscribers can now download, activate, and connect RV 6 with their Shotgun account within minutes - without the need for any manual configuration. We've also unified the Shotgun menu, added support for multiple site connections for those working with more than one vendor, and added RVIO support when submitting a version from the RV Submit Tool.

More goodness in Shotgun 6

Shotgun 6 is also full of new features to boost production efficiency and integration with the tools you use every day.

New Project Templates - Manage different workflows for different projects such as films, episodic TV series or games. You can create your own templates then use them to create new projects in a consistent way.

Easier Navigation - a new navigation widget helps you browse your project info faster.

Customizable Hierarchy - Choose how you want to navigate items you're tracking based on their relationships; Shots by Sequence in your film projects, or Shots by Sequence and Episode on your episodic TV projects, for example.

Improved Flame Integration - Generate both high resolution and web resolution media, so you can get higher quality exports out for review faster. Learn more.

Updated Loader - Find and load your files faster directly from inside of your creative tools, such as Maya, 3ds Max and Nuke, with the new list view in the Toolkit Loader app. Learn more.
