Is it possible to produce professional media on Linux using free, open source software? Jared and JR Nielsen will share their experience using Linux exclusively with free and proprietary software to produce audio-visual media for personal and client-based projects. They will discuss the pros and cons of using Linux and FOSS and the specific software packages they use in their workflow: Lightworks, Bitwig, Blender, Ardour, Audacity, Inkscape, Dragonframe, GIMP, Krita, Synfig, Taiga, Mattermost, ImageMagick, Darktable and avconv. While there are big production houses, such as Pixar, using Linux in their production workflow, Jared and JR Nielsen will present case studies on independent creatives who are successfully using Linux and FOSS to produce professional media.
