Blender as video editor

Hi,

I thought this was interesting and would be of interest here; seems
that Blender is becoming very promising as a  video compositor, and
its now possible to created really nice stuff "entirely on Free
Software [with] a $160 dollar Kodak Zi6 portable video fixed lens
recorder."

Sadly it uses proprietary fonts, though...

SVN updated

Heya, I went nuts today and hooked up a load of stuff. Part of this is
that I ported the currently live openfontlibrary.org to use the new
SVN accounts.

This should make it much easier to move the new website over to the hosting.

I updated the documentation for the SVN too here:
http://openfontlibrary.org/wiki/SVN

Basically, the next steps IMO would be to move the development version
of OFLB over to SVN, then can do an svn up on the site when Ben, Dave
and I are online to get the site sync'd. When could we do this? I know
there is more to do on the dev, but curious on the timeline...I'm sure
there are things I should have documented better, but can do in
realtime with you guys soon.

So just a recap, both the current live site's data (all that can be
put into a repo) is now in a repo. This is on the original OSUOSL
hawthorn server. I also updated the new VM to be exactly the same as
the hawthorn server. So, if we had OSUOSL change DNS to the new OFLB
home, we would see the same exact site.

The point is, once we get the new site's customizations into SVN, then
it should be easy to update the site.

Cheers guys, I'm in #openclipart once I wake up to answer any questions.

Jon

For the dev instance, we exported ccHost 5.x.x and then checked out the 
temporary repository into it once it was set up. This seemed the least 
complex method. The active work has been confined to files under a 
single directory (which is how ccHost supports customisation). In 
future, would the whole site be kept in SVN?

OK, that might be possible in the next couple of days. Not sure I'll be 
needed though.

Thanks, Jon.

Re: SVN updated

ccHost will stay in its SVN repo, then we can use the new
openfontlibrary-public repo for the skins, plugins, files, etc...

Where are the new files at? Are they not in any SVN repo?

Maybe easy right now if I get access to that fontly server to take a
look at harmonizing these things...I'm on a roll right now...

I'm in #openclipart if you guys want to push on...

Props OFLB & dev account request & question

Hello!

--props & my perspective--
(as posted on typophile)
You could turn it around. Shouldn’t type designers be interested in  
exactly what it is, that makes visual artists, graphic designers and  
computer geeks band up to take the actual effort to start developing  
new development methods for type design? At the point where we would  
band up to ask type designers to give us free fonts, you can still  
dismiss us as cheapskates. But the fact that we are taking all this  
effort clearly shows that the current produce of the type industry  
does not meet our needs.

And I do not think anyone involved in these efforts would state the  
superiority or even the relevance of their typographic judgment as  
primary factors involved.

So why not be a bit more curious to find out what is driving us?  
Ultimately, regardless of your stance in all the ideological  
bickering, this seems to be a very real issue among the public, who  
are your potential public, and ultimately your revenue stream.

&

Because with all the OFLB reserves flying around, isn’t it also  
obvious to everyone that their new site proves to be a major  
accomplishment in these areas? I find the design frankly to be the  
single best looking site I have seen in ages. Which is an even more  
able accomplishment when you realise they build it around MediaWiki— 
really, the blue and white one. They also managed to mash this up with

We are, as you know, currently migrating, and until that happens you
can't make use of our SVN tree.

But I've added it to
openclipfont.osuosl.org:/var/lib/svn/htpasswd/openfontlibrary-public
now so you will have access when the time comes :-)

I can't be involved, I'm behind on my schoolwork :-(

I cancelled my Robothon trip because I have to do my schoolwork.

Bummer :-(

Well just let me know if one of you guys is specifically interested in  
anything on the program, I can make a transcript or something.
