We’re running a crowdfunding campaign to develop and improve the Rainbox Open Tools: new free and open source tools for film and animation production.
There are a lot of things we can and we want to develop. What we’re going to achieve depends primarily on how much we can raise during this crowdfunding campaign. We’ve set levels to put some priorities, but of course the more we raise, the more plentiful and advanced the tools will be.
2D Compositing and Motion Design tools for Blender
We’ll need to reach the fourth level of our crowdfunding campaign to begin the development of these tools.
We believe that with some well-thought tools, Blender could become a powerful 2D compositing and motion design software, a free alternative to After Effects.
These tools would work with Duik for Blender and its 2D and 2.5D layouts, and implement parametric shapes (and 3D objects), an advanced text animation tool, and other tools to help layered scenes. These tools would make use of the excellent Animation Nodes (http://animation-nodes.com/ ) add-on and we would contribute to improve it.
