Rive Guide


Frequently Asked Questions

Is Rive free?

Everybody who signs up for Rive gets access to the free Individual plan. You can create a maximum of 3 files and share public files with the community. If you want to create a team to have unlimited files and to share files in private with other team members, then you need to pick from one of our paid plans.

Can I access the old Rive (formerly Flare)?

If you had an account for the old Rive (formerly Flare), you can still access the editor and all your files at flare.rive.app.
If you want to use the new Rive, you'll need to create a new account to take advantage of all the new features.

Can I import files from the old Rive (formerly Flare) into the new Rive?

Yes, but not everything is supported yet. The new Rive has a new format with different features. Some things will need to be tweaked manually. For specifics, view our page on importing old Rive files.

What's changed in the new Rive compared to the old version (formerly Flare)?

A lot! There's team collaboration, tons of new editor features, all-new simple-to-use runtimes for the web, Android, iOS, Flutter, game engines, and more. Read about all the improvements in the new Rive.

What happens if my internet connection goes down?

Your files are always saved in the local storage of your browser. Even if your connection goes down, you can continue working on your file. As soon as your connection is back, Rive syncs with our online revision manager. Just make sure you find a connection before opening the file on another computer, otherwise, you will not see the latest revision of that file.

What happens to my files if I cancel my team plan?

If you cancel, your team plan will not renew at the next billing cycle. At that moment, team members will lose the ability to edit files in the team. They will still be able to view the files, but they won't be able to make changes to them without re-activating the account.

Are my files private?

Yes! All your files are privately stored within your personal directory. Your account also enables you to join teams to collaborate with your peers, remix and share files with the wider community, and access our in-app tuition material.
