LGM 2012 has finished and this is the first time that people from the Synfig community has attended.
It would be awesome to hear from you guys (Animtim, Zelgadis & Eldruin) about the experience, the audience obtained for Synfig and the development of your acts.
I’m eager to watch the videos & photos and read your comments here guys!
This excitation form my side is also justified by the recent news that next LGM will be held in Spain (Madrid 2013), my native country!
I’ve not completly recovered from this crazy week, but I’ve already made a global report on my blog HERE.
Indeed we talked about this with Zelgadis when we heard the first bits of discussion for having next year LGM in Madrid, then you’ll have no excuse to not come
About our Synfig talks, looks like everyone attending enjoyed discovering Synfig power… (and the audience room was quite filled, at least a good proportion for a last-day morning…!) see the synfig website got saturated in a way during the first or second talk, I don’t remember exactly
Also it was a great opportunity to discuss all 3 how to get together to improve synfig…
I came up with Zelgadis that the terminology used inside synfig should be improved, to make things more clear (discussion to come on dev mailing list)
Also he did show me in direct the power of the stickman template as I never tried it and didn’t know all the power-inside… And I did show him my workflow, hopping it’ll be useful to improve his one.
We discussed some way I’ll can probably help morevna project in future steps…
Really constructive, I’m so happy
PS: as mentionned in the blog post, most talks have not been recorded, but hopefuly saturday morning we had a camera filming in the audience, so the synfig-related talks should be online some day soon )
It was a great experience attending the LGM last week. I’m very happy for having met all the people I have met and specially for having met Zelgadis and Animtim in person.
About the talks, there were a lot that were very interesting. Specially the ones from Gimp about the GEGL, GLyphy, etc and of course the ones from Anitim and Zelgadis.
I liked a lot the power of remake and how it’s able to automate the rendering so effectively, and the workshop of Animtim about comic-style drawing in Krita that finished with an impressive Captain Libre Graphics drawed live.
I liked a lot the LGM and I think we were able to show our presence in the Libre Graphics world effectively.
I can’t wait for next year in Madrid! You MUST come genete!!
Hey, LGM was awesome! Lots of cool people, lots of ideas, lots of inspiration!
We have come with some interesting plans and perspectives!
Eldruin, maybe it’s worth to post photo of all us three together?
Carlos, we were missing you every day!
Animtim, I’ll wait for your first shot in the mailing list! ^___^
Well… how to answer your question lightly?.. ^^ because last 2 weeks I was sleeping just 3-4 hours per day, developing the new technology for character animation in Synfig. We made 4 minutes of animation with 17 characters from scratch in 20 days. “We” means me and my coleague worked for full time and 3 on-demand contributors. Well… What can I say after that? I LOVE Synfig! “With fewer people and resources”! Yay! ^_^
You should probably take a break for a day and use it to improve the campaign. By the way you could use that animaton to make a video for your campaign.You should get 8 hours of sleep it will help you work better.
