Rio

The ultimate finishing toolset

Download Brochure

Rio’s integrated effects and compositing tools give the finishing artist an amazing array of choices for fixes and the client more creative options even at the final stages of a project. Never has it been easier to remove distracting items from a shot, replace a sky or even re-frame a whole sequence – right there in front of the client.

Titling

Rio’s on-board tools make it easy to add titles – whether lower thirds in documentaries or complete subtitles for foreign language versions. Just another feature in the Rio armoury that smooths workflow and gives clients more of what they need.

Compositing

Compositing

With a full multilayer timeline in context to the grade and effects it’s so easy to layer up in the Rio. Using a range of built in keyer tools and garbage mattes you can composite and blend between layers quickly and efficiently. Sky replacement is so easy and effective, and you can combine all of the tools such as Plugin’s to create a great effect if there’s no budget for VFX.

Integrated planar tracker

The versatile Mocha planar tracker is fully integrated into the Rio toolset, alongside SAM's own point based tracker. Both trackers can be used to either stabilise shots, to composite multiple layers or to apply shapes to moving parts of the image where manual keyframes might take much longer! For complex shots you have all the access to the tracking data and keyframes so you can fix and edit them easily.

Keyframe controller

Keyframe controller

The keyframe graph gives you access to edit any effect over time. It's available in everything imaginable, from shapes, color, plugins, pan and scan. Hidden away behind the edit timeline it’s easy to reveal and get animating and then hide away again after use. Every movable item has a keyframe and you can show and hide even individual keyframes for points on a shape. You can even process various types of effects, to add either jitter or smoothness to the subject. 

Retouch with Paintbox

Being a SAM system, Rio has the legendary Paintbox built in. Paintbox is nothing short of brilliant for quick fixes – repairs, replacements, retouches, embellishments. All are completed seamlessly in seconds. Paintbox has rescued more shots than can be easily imagined – it is a huge time, money and face saver. Quite simply, nothing else comes close.
