ASIFA-Hollywood is encouraging its members to try popular open source software programs for themselves and to participate in the online communities. In particular, ASIFA is recommending Audacity, Blender, Gimp, Inkscape, Krita, Notepad ++, Open Broadcaster, and Synfig. The goal is to foster better tools and art for everyone.
The International Animated Film Society, ASIFA-Hollywood continues its commitment to open source animation technology this month with a special development sponsorship to Synfig, a 2D vector graphics animation program. The amount awarded was $2000. This grant will help keep their new developer employed full-time, working on bug-fixes and improving stability of the free and open source software. ASIFA members are encouraged to download and experiment with the software today at https://www.synfig.org/#download.
Ardour is open source and I gave a good faith effort at giving it a shot - I'm not a fan. I think the thing I liked the least about Ardour was that it sent each of it's internal tracks out to JACK and then back in again paying the latency cost with it of a few milliseconds (this can be configured). I use a lot of tracks and process real time audio with the DAW in monitor mode (an unusual use case) and that latency started adding up for me and became annoying.
I also dislike the UI.
I would prefer to use Ardour over Audacity if I had to make an animation though, that's for sure.
