Animation in Linux


Apple took over Shake and Silicon Grail's RAYZ, two compositing tools for Linux.

"Film GIMP development perhaps has a renewed urgency because Apple recently acquired not only Nothing Real's Shake (see my May article in Linux Journal, "Tippett Studio and Nothing Real's Shake") but also Silicon Grail's RAYZ. Film GIMP, Shake and RAYZ are the three available Linux compositors; all the other Linux-based compositors are proprietary, internal to the studios that developed them.

Steve Jobs reportedly visited motion picture studios months back and took copious notes about to how best position Apple in the motion picture business. Buying Shake brings Apple the leading commercial film compositor, and in buying RAYZ, it has acquired the most significant Linux challenger. Apple stated that they intend to continue Linux support for at least one more version of Shake, but users worry that Apple seems lukewarm in their support for Linux. More Linux compositors, however, are on the horizon.

At the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) convention in April, Discreet showed their Combustion product ported to Linux, though not yet released. Digital Domain says it may release NUKE, its proprietary compositor that has won two Scientific and Technical Achievement Academy Awards. ILM also has a highly regarded Linux compositor called CompTime (described in my July 2002 Linux Journal article, "Industrial Light & Magic"), but there are no plans to release it. A source at Adobe says there also are no plans to port After Effects to Linux, but they did release Adobe Acrobat for Linux in May without fanfare. "

The Rayz software is still available for download on Silicon Grail's website.
You can download it by ftp for Linux, Windows and UNIX

In dutch we say "allen daarheen"

Naar kan ik het film vinden? (At least that's how I think you ask "where can I find the movie?" in Dutch.) I tried the various menus, but it just told me where to go to find Adobe and Macromedia, etc.

Ho ho toch niet boos zeker

toch niet lastig zeker omdat we op een Engels forum in het Engels posten.

Je hoeft helemaal op geen menu's te klikken:
op de homepagina van computerkit lees je het volgende

".:WELKOM OP COMPUTERKIT:.
© versie 2003

bekijk de eerste ruwe versie van Bill's Place: de linuxpinguïn Tux verslaat het Windowsmonster.
klik || Click to view Linuxvideo "

Computerkit.be has to become a big database with software for Windows, Linux, UNIX, MacOS...
The site is new, so we still have to do a lot of work.
It's meant for students and all other people that are searching for software for a certain goal

(please excuse me for my english)
