Portfolio - an upcoming Pixelfed feature that allows users to create their own portfolio website that best represents them and their work. …



I’m not familiar enough with game engines to know how it compares. Maybe @deadsuperhero@lemmy.ml knows, he makes these types of games on the side.


I liked Japanese Breakfast and Snail Mail this year. But i have to admit, I haven’t listened to a lot of new music this year.


Bladecoder Adventure Engine Releases 4.1.0

Bladecoder is a set of tools to create interactive graphic adventures (classical point and click games). A few weeks ago they recently released version 4.1.0 here: https://github.com/bladecoder/bladecoder-adventure-engine/releases/tag/v4.1.0





I use storyboarder a lot for animation. It has a nice 3d viewer with premade assets or you can import models into your scene. The drawing tools are simple and it’s easy to get started creating storyboards.



I’m most excited about the storyboard editor and animation improvements.

What excites you about the new release?



Sozi is a zooming presentation tool for SVG documents. The main website is at https://sozi.baierouge.fr/. …





BlenderBim is another addon for arch vis. So there are some options.






Although it’s a little disappointing, I’m not too familiar with their efforts to truly develop and fund an open source project. But honestly, 4 months is not a lot of time. I will however give them the benefit of the doubt and say that they have exhausted every funding avenue.


The company posted on their discord channel that the promising software is no longer open source. Accoring to msarca (on their discord channel) *"The entire team behind this project has families to care of, and we can’t afford to continue on the open-source path, given the fact that we made exactly…


Probably, in the short term. But there should be a long term goal when boycotting. Companies don’t want there bottom line affected long term and they are more inclined to wait things out in the short term.



As free software enthusiasts, we have rightly been skeptical of venture capital funding. Because we know that one day “payment will be due” and VCs will want to make a profit on their initial investment.

Funding open source projects have always been tough, since donations don’t always cover it.



Penpot is a web based design and prototyping platform meant for cross-domain teams. …


Shotcut - New Version 21.10.31: Markers

Timeline Markers seems to be the focus of this release…


Check out their discord server or matrix bridge. It’s very active and the lead posts daily updates.


The game is part of a collective called http://wtactics.org/. Their discord server is way more active than the site.


I’m mostly looking forward to Grease Pencil improvements.

And I also like:

In the last year Blender worked on defining a clear mission statement. It’s what drives the blender.org projects and keeps the focus: We make the world’s best 3D technology available as open source tools for artists. Or in short: we defend and further The Freedom to Create.



This is great news!

When my linux machine bit the dust a few years ago, I had to use my old mac. I didin’t want to use the macports version, so I had to switch to Shotcut to do some light video editing. I’ve been happy with Shotcut and still prefer it over kdenlive.


I downloaded and fooled around with it. The interface is a little too busy for my liking. I’ve been using Zim for a long time and it suits my needs.


Yeah, one day I’ll download and learn Ardour. I’ve been putting it off for too long.


The techniques and skills you develop as a sound engineer go beyond just learning a software interface.

Too many people focus on the software when they are just starting out. It’s the foundations that are important.


Anyone going to participate? I’m going to take a stab at it.


I mostly use Zim, which can save to a readable text file.

For bookmarks and links, I use Simplenote.
