View Full Version : Image viewer/Sequence player

06-18-2010, 05:45 AM
Any one of you have any good sugestions on a good image sequence viewer. It would be nice if it had a browsing funcion as well and support tons of formats. I had a very old version of ACDSee, wich was fast, small and great. It was just a eval version but it did its job. ACDSee now days have too much functions and bling to it. The old one was so fast that I could play 720p in 25fps (JPG).
(Would be great if it was a freebie aswell)

What do you guys use?

a pretty good one is flipbook (comooes with xsi). I don't use xsi, but we have 3 guys here using it so I use flipbook for that.

I love this one. it plays real time from your hard drive without rendering a preview. excellent for long image sequences. Doesn't work so well with HD unless you have a disk array.

I've only used QuickTime Pro. for my clips. How do some of these compare and at what point would you recommend something more professional (higher end)?

Probably not what you're after but I still use an old plug in by Colin Cohen called fprime viewer.

Its quite cool as the newly updated images get added in as you watch.

this one is great rv (http://www.tweaksoftware.com/)
but it isn't free

Just agreeing with some of the earlier posts.

djv is a great open source player, the developer is a great guy
rv is, in my opinion, the best player on the market.

I've also heard good comments about Pdplayer, but I've never used it.

First I want to apologize that my first post in this forum (I've been reading it frequently for years) points to a commercial product to which I am somewhat related.

You may find it worth looking at Pdplayer and the integration with Lightwave it offers.
Here is a link to the video: http://www.pdplayer.com/videos/pdplayer_11.mov

As many have already mentioned there are lots of great sequence players (RV, Framecycler, DJV etc.) you can choose from, depending on your needs.

Another vote for djv_view. I use it all the time.
