Title:

    Large Steps Toward Open Source

Presenter(s):



Abstract:


    Many of the tools used in computer animation and visual effects are based on open-source software and collaborative research. But only recently have the major studios made significant projects available to the open-source community. 

    This panel gathers industry veterans and open-source pioneers to discuss the recent surge of open-source projects sponsored by their organizations. What are the motivations and driving forces behind this work? What are the challenges? What does it take to make open source a part of a studio’s culture?
