RV integration in Explorer, preview

Basically, I’m tired of this workflow: fire up RV, invoke the open file dialog, navigate to the folder where my image sequence is and finally double-click the sequence I want to review.

I want to streamline this workflow as much as possible. So, my idea is to add a right-click menu entry for the most frequent file types I review daily, i.e. jpgs, exrs, tiffs, etc. When right-clicking on any of the files in a sequence a script will figure out the sequence numbering and will pass the wild-carded file name to RV via RVPUSH.

When I’m done, I’ll post the scripts and how-to here, so stay tuned. ;)


  1. RV preferences -> Packages tab -> Sequence from File.
    Open any image and RV will load entire sequence :)

  3. Hey, deko, thanks for pointing that out, but it has nothing to do with what I’m working on. :) I’m loading up sequences of files directly from the Windows Explorer folders, not from within RV. ;)
