Hello ILUG Members

The much awaited second installment of the Open Movie Project after "Orange"
called "Peach" has released "Big Buck Bunny" on 30/05/2008.


What is an Open Movie ??

The movie has been entirely made using Free and Open Source Software*.
And it is released entirely as open content, means the entire production
( like source code ) is made available to the public, and they have all
the freedoms.

The main Free Software tool used is Blender, which is under the GPL License.
Blender(www.blender.org) has evolved to become a powerful 3D modeling
animation tool.
Also Gimp(www.gimp.org) (and other FOSS tools ) has really utilized the
power of Free and Open Source Software and the community such that
the result can challenge any mainstream animation movie.

Indeed has undoubtedly proven the power of the FOSS community and all
cheers to the Peach team.
( and especially to Ton Roosendaal, the man behind it )

 From http://www.bigbuckbunny.org/index.php/about/


This Open movie project had as main targets:

  * Developing tools in Blender for editing and rendering hair, fur or
  * Improve character animation tools for cartoonish motion and
  * Test Blender with giant outdoor environments, with large grassy
    fields and many trees with leaves
  * Further validate Blender as a professional animation creation suite

And secondary:

  * Create a great and good looking animation short, licensed freely
    as open content
  * Provide content for other artists to learn from or to re-use,
    including documentation and tutorials

And of course: Have lots of fun!
