famous film producer Dreamworks just released Rise of the Guardians, an animated film perfect for this holiday season that is of particular interest to Linux users. In the film used OpenVDB , a toolkit with which to develop volumetric forms for the inclusion of special effects in these animated films.
Well, OpenVDB is an Open Source software is released from the month of August and it uses a Mozilla Public License 2.0, and this means that more and more developers will help improve work on this library.
David Lipton, one of those responsible for that decision, said OpenVDB allows “ overcome memory limitations subject to other similar data formats “, and with that opening want to make it an industry standard , but yes, it will be easy to use by other producers, because Lipton himself said that “there are other things developed in the company and we think that be launched [As Open Source] “.
Which is it then? Will this be another little trick to get the good reputation of Open Source , improve the image of DreamWorks, and sell more tickets to the movie? You know that recently talking about a very similar case with Lightworks, and we expect the company created by Spielberg is not taking advantage of the Open Source philosophy of an unethical way.
