RV 7.6 is released!
We’re excited to announce another important update for RV! We’ve been hard at work since the release of 7.5 on a few key updates that have been in demand for a while.
In this update you will find support for Apple ProRes and DNxHR for media playback—both frequent requests among all of you. We’re happy to make this available starting today.
In this release we have also been heavily focused on performance. We have been partnering with clients to do a deep dive on our media playback. Thanks to this great collaboration between our clients and our development team, we’ve been able to identify some bottlenecks in our playback engine and have removed these. We think you’ll see better performance in the following areas:
- Improved performance over SDI output and presentation mode
- Improved performance of the cache
- Improved defaults and handling of EXR files
- Improved playback of mixed formats in a timeline
There’s always more to do when it comes to performance, but we’re excited about the gains we’ve made in this release. Check out the release notes here for more details.
Thanks to everyone in the community who gave us feedback on these updates; engagement like this helps us solve the right problems. We’re looking forward to your feedback on the overall release.

Until next time,
