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.

    One of these applications is not like the others, why not SciTE [scintilla.org] or Geany? [geany.org]

    Is how 2 grand is keeping a Synfig developer employed full time. Either they are living in the deep 3rd world, or they are paying lip service to the cost of developers compared to the financing of the video publishing/animation industry.

      You'd pay them more?

    "Notepad++ is a text editor and source code editor for use with Microsoft Windows."

      ...then again, for those who find the app useful, Notepad++ 7.x and Notepad++ 6.x via WINE are rated Silver.
