Rosegarden is a wonderful program. Although I use Musescore2 a lot too, I love how quickly you can create something in Rosegarden, particularly using DSSI plug-ins. This piece was an experiment to see what I could do using the X-Synth DSSI plugin. I'm using Manjaro Linux/KDE.

Merry Christmas! A quick animation I made in +Synfig, Inkscape and Kdenlive with some music I did in Rosegarden.

An ident I did for Transdiffusion's 50th anniversary in 2014. Done using Blender. The video clips were edited in Kdenlive and then exported from there as PNG sequences for use in Blender.

Entirely done in +Synfig Studio, and a good demonstration of what some of its layers can actually do. There's a bug in the renderer which causes some blocking in the blur layers but I am using utterly crazy settings and I'm amazed and impressed Synfig Studio could render this at all!

A bit of an experiment in using Physics with Blender Cycles, along with some music created using Rosegarden.

This was one of those things I had to do even though I knew it would turn out poorly. At least I've got it off of my bucket list now.

A little project that again used a lot of free software. Blender was used to animate the Skyline, +Synfig  to animate and filmise the captions. Inkscape was used to draw the "THAMES" and Kdenlive to put everything together and add some more film and sound effects.

Bit of music done in free software for a video. I used Rosegarden, Kubuntu 15.04, X-Synth DSSI and FluidSynth-DSSI.

I used Synfig Studio, Inkscape, Kdenlive and #b3d to create these titles for "The Ad Show", shown on Big Centre TV (http://www.bigcentre.tv) in the West Midlands of England last night at 10pm. Synfig and Inkscape were used to create animations used throughout the programme as well.

Synfig and Blender helped to launch local television in the West Midlands of England this week. Big Centre TV's coverage area includes Meriden near Solihull, which traditionally is the geographical "big centre" of England.

The first 45 seconds here are half #b3d and half +Synfig studio. The Blender side isn't finished yet (I even used Synfig for some bits that will eventually use 3D) as this is a pre-launch promo, but I'm delighted with the rainbow effect I could get from Synfig.

The opening tune was done using Rosegarden and the test card was drawn in Inkscape too!
