We launched our first Kdenlive fundraising campaign one week ago and we already collected almost two-thirds of the goal!

Lead With Empathy-Always

  1. Don’t forget the humans behind the company’s goals.
  2. Encourage folks to put themselves first.

Such a simple and an underrated piece of advice for managers.

I think it’s a better paint animation. And I like the animation tools it has.

It’s never good when a government punishes anyone who criticizes it.

Yes, for Pixelfed. in the future they plan on making features so the site can be used as art portfolio. Even though I think it can be used now for that.

🌀Multiple exports Speed up your workflow exporting multiple elements simultaneously. Use the export window to manage your multiple exports and be informed about the download progress. Big exports will happen in the background so you can keep designing in the meantime ;)

A lot of good stuff here:

I’m most excited for:

  • Multiple pages , which are managed by the new Page tool
  • Layers and objects dialog merged

What about you all?

Unfortunately, “gentlemen agreements” in business don’t work and never has. Even with friends. Cassidy is a part owner in the company and will still have owner rights whether he’s drawing a paycheck or not. It doesn’t look like there are any written agreements in place to say otherwise.

OpenToonz Family Of Forks
Meet the Opentoonz family of forks. In case you don't know, these are apps for 2d animation: - [Opentoonz]( - The original open source fork of the proprietary Toonz, used by Studio Ghbili. - [Tahoma 2d]( - Aims to be a more user-friendly animation program for digital 2D artists and stop motion animators. - [Opentoonz - Morevna Edition]( - developed by the creators of Morevna, it includes additional features like Krita-like assistants, advanced color selector and the MyPaint brush engine.

It sucks, but this sub now may have to consider changing it’s name to workreform because of this. Plus workreform is a much better description of the movement.

I’m most happy with the Inkscape UI updates. I think they’re really trying to focus on these lately.

LibreArts - Weekly-ish recap — 26 January 2021
Highlights: new releases of Scribus, Flameshot, Surge, ZynAddSubFX, Zrythm, Giada; Audacity resurrects real-time effects, Ardour gets cue markers.

Scribus 1.5.8 released
The Scribus Team is pleased to announce the release of version 1.5.8. Like previous releases, work on version 1.5.8 focused mostly on bugfixes and code optimizations, the latter of which are expected to lead to reliability and speed improvements. We have also begun to prepare Scribus for using Qt6, which will make our work easier for future releases.

The Highlights: - Better axis support in Techdraw and DXF\ - Allow to use QCAD to import/export DWG - Draft texts are now used when using the C++ (new) DXF importer - Proper BIM views - Fixed level display unit - Flip wall direction - A new documentation system (Work in progress)

Portfolio - an upcoming Pixelfed feature that allows users to create their own portfolio website that best represents them and their work. No likes, comments or other social aspects. Just your content. Hand pick a selection of public posts or use the most recent. Select a fixed width or full width layout. Choose a grid or masonry feed. Hide or show post captions, license, location, timestamp and the original post link. ![](

I’m not familiar enough with game engines to know how it compares. Maybe 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.

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?

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.

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.

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