Autodesk Acquires Tweak Software

Autodesk acquires Tweak’s image and sequence playback tool RV; Tweak and Shotgun teams to work together to advance review and collaboration technology.

Tweak Software, developer of image and sequence playback tool RV, is joining the Shotgun team at Autodesk, the company announced on its blog on Monday.

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 Shotgun team, part of Autodesk, develops scalable production tracking, review, and asset management software for the M&E industry. Autodesk acquired Shotgun in June 2014.

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 to 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.
