SIGGRAPH BOF: Temerity Pipeline User Group

Jim Callahan kindly sent me an invitation to attend their "Birds of Feather" session at SIGGRAH 2008 next Tuesday.
I won´t be attending SIGGRAPH this year, but I thought it´d be interesting for the people who visit this blog.
Temerity Pipeline User Group
Tuesday 12 August
Los Angeles Convention Center
Room 307
2 - 5pm
"This year we will start by giving a brief overview of the core ideas behind Temerity Pipeline and its major features for those who have not been exposed to the software before. Then we'll talk in more detail about some of the more interesting new features introduced since last year's SIGGRAPH. Finally, we'll wrap up by talking about some important new features we plan to introduce in the next 6-12 months.

These BOF tend to be pretty informal and we encourage both questions and general discussion from the audience throughout the meeting. Attendees will likely be a mixture long time Pipeline users, people from studios interested in Pipeline and people who've just heard about Pipeline recently for the first time. This will be an opportunity for those interested in Pipeline to get a chance to talk to people from studios who've been using it for a while as well as the creators of Pipeline. All are welcome...

Nimble collective: a virtual streaming collaborative animation platform

Nimble is a virtual collaborative animation platform on the cloud, via app streaming. That means no software installation, no file transfers, no hardware or operative system issues...

Being software agnostic, you can use your favorite animation tools and then invite collaborators to join you on your 2D or 3D project creating and animating on a web browser: model, rig, texture, light, animate, render, composite, edit...
 You will do your own budget and schedule-planning, get your own virtual studio running in minutes, and populate it with artists from around the world. You can even set up revenue sharing.

They are in beta testing right now, with a first “Pilot Program” limited to a small group of invited guests and just premiered the first animated content to utilize the platform 'Animal Fact #164', at Siggraph 2016.

An unidentified reader of the blog just noticed this "fantastic opensource editing tool", although it is not open source yet. This is an excerpt from their web:

"An Academy and Emmy award winning professional-grade editor with over 20 years of history in the film and broadcast industry. Having cut hundreds of films such as Pulp Fiction, The Departed, Centurion and Shutter Island, it includes a full feature set of editorial tools -- from advanced trimming and media management, to stereoscopic support and realtime effects including multiple secondary colour correctors. Lightworks has an advanced effects pipeline, utilizing the power of your GPU. And with support for up to 2K workflows with realtime effects, it is the most advanced editing application available."
In fact it is not Open Source just yet, but "Some time in the middle of 2011, we hope to reach our next milestone -- releasing the source code to any developer who wants to build upon what we started"…
