LGM 2012 (and 2013!)

Hi! The program page promises that “all talks will be archived and streamed”. I’m not sure about the workshops and BoF, though… Need to ask organizers.

Wear one of those sunglasses-cameras :wink:

I have contacted the LGM organizers and they replied that there are no plans to officially stream/record workshops and BOFs.
I have no influence to change the situation, but you can write to organizers directly (see contacts here – http://libregraphicsmeeting.org/2013/helping-out/). You’re not the only one who asking the workshops to be recorded, so a few such requests from different people might convince them to think about that. :slight_smile:

I come to Madrid with my friend and she often wear a camera/camrecorder (and also sunglasses but is other subject), maybe she will be glad to record Synfig’s stuff. More infos in few days.

  • if you contact organizers, please ask also for free churros :slight_smile:


Great! From my side, I will try to record everything happening on the screen during the workshop. So maybe we will be able to combine two videostreams later. :slight_smile:

I’ve just ordered mine! \o/

without maybe :wink:

Will you be talking to the guys from Inkscape at LGM about improving cross comaptibility with Synfig and Inkscape?Aka Sif to SVG and SVG to Sif convertors? I think that will be very important I find inkscape much easier for vectroring but would like sif files to be able to be converted to SVGs.

Unless i mess something, you can found the most actual answer to this in the thread you start 3month ago…
Why synfig doesn’t use SVG format? and spécialy here Why synfig doesn’t use SVG format?



I have done a little wet sunday intro for LGM13&Synfig … hop you like… and feel free to destroy / remixe it.
Synfig LGM-288px.gif
SynfigLGM13.zip (199 KB)
Nota : the duck is one of Jcome’s vectorised by inkscape! and incorporated as svg, lgm logo come from 2010 svg source + little blur on the blue squares.

That’s coolio!!!
I would peace a little the timing but the animation is great!
I want to carry it to LGM!!

my pleasure …

Humm … maybe this simple animation support haramai sifplayer and opposite can also be true… ?
If so and sifz other things, this could be in the website to inform about Lgm13 Animation/svg like rendez vous.

Nice animation.
About sifPlayer: Right now sifPlayer does not support the raster side of synfig.
SifPlayer renders everything again every frame.
About sifPlayer and your animation :
warp layer is not implemented. I believe that wrap layer is in the raster side.
shade layer is not implemented. Raster again?
blur layer same as above.

rectangle layer I just haven’t implemented it.

Also this will render slow cause you have too many splines.

Can you test the new version with the old one. Your html skills are better than mine. I just know how to prepare an html5 canvas and then use javascript to load the file and render it on the canvas.

But if we present sifPlayer as a proof of concept project then we may attract people with proper knowledge in the field. Cause as I said too many times I am not a programmer. I just found a way to draw the sif file in the html5 canvas and I took action to do it cause I was too impatient to wait.
You can see from the way I do the commits in github what a bad programmer I am.

Synfig can be fully implemented in html5 canvas. And it must be done by a professional programmer of the field!

Also with sifPlayer even in the current state. You can bypass the problem of the screen/window resolution. Cause it just transforms the matrix of the html5 canvas context to much the sif’s files first canvas.

The raster side of synfig and the xml file type positions Synfig at the number one choice of the open source programs for the html5 canvas. Maybe even for editing the ‘pages’ or ‘apps’ with support of a meta data for a layer.

An option like that may change synfig for ever.
