See the cool, new features of Revu 2018


New User Interface (UI)


The intuitive interface and simple navigation in Revu® 2018 is designed to put all the right tools right at your fingertips.


Properties Toolbar


A new toolbar that responds to user action by providing contextually appropriate information and controls, maximizing efficiency by automatically presenting the right tools at the right time.




Panels are exposed on the side rather than tabs within panels. Panels are immediately discoverable and accessible without resizing elements of the user interface, which disrupts visibility and flow.


Studio Projects Revamped

The redesigned Studio Projects integration features an updated tabbed interface, making navigation simple and intuitive. The Studio panel remains focused on the list of available Projects and Sessions and now provides access to multiple Studio Projects simultaneously.


Studio Sessions Enhancements

The Sessions list in the Studio panel has been updated with new icon statuses to provide a visual indicator for soon to expire, expired and inactive Sessions.


Customizable Keyboard Shortcuts

Users can now customize keyboard shortcut assignments and remap existing shortcuts based on individual workflow needs. There is also newly added support for shortcuts to many other tools, including Batch tools, Cut Content, Erase Content, Disable Line Weights, Places, Spaces and Sets tools.


In-App Onboarding and Tutorials

Revu 2018 focuses on simplifying the interface and helping users discover tools while improving efficiency. With the new In-App Onboarding and Tutorials, users can pick from several workflow-based modules to watch a brief video about how they can use Revu for their work.


Plus, a whole lot more.
