Screening Room for RV Installation Guide

Screening Room Documentation Index


NOTE: This rest of this article describes the initial Shotgun / RV Integration that preceded the advent of Screening Room, which integrates with RV in a more holistic manner. The Screening Room info here is the most relevant and up-to-date, but feel free to review the original integration details below for more background on the underlying platform.

The Shotgun+RV integration makes it super easy to find and play media in RV right from Shotgun.  And once you are in RV, you now have access to a new tool-set that lets you modify the playback based on information in Shotgun, or deep link right into Shotgun to take Notes or view more information.  A "Shotgun-aware" URL from RV let's you send around links that will launch people right into RV to view the work.  There are even more features available when you use Shotgun's built-in Review & Approval tool, called Screening Room, with RV.  See more information about Screening Room here.

Here is a quick tour of the features in the v1 release:


This feature is available to use with Shotgun's Studio or Partner Editions only and RV customers at no extra cost (Shotgun 1.12+ and RV 3.8+).  The information below will guide you through the setup and configuration.  Anyone (including non-clients) can see this feature in action on our new demo site.   Check out the "Shotgun+RV demo site" info below for details.
