Video Compositing software - Free

Post by Mike Annear »

Hi All,
I usually use Adobe "After Effects" to add Logos, Text etc to movies, animation etc.
Its also great for blending 3D models with their pointclouds.
But...expensive.
I found a really nice "open-source • cross platform • nodal • compositing software" package called "Natron"
( http://natron.inria.fr/ )

Give it a try !
Regards,
Mike.

Yes, thanks Mike! We tried this out yesterday and I was surprised it is free software as powerful as it is. We are still trying to figure out how to use it properly, but I am hoping it can help us compile multiple 4k videos. It is surprising how difficult that is and how most software is incapable of handling the task. The Blender integration also looks intriguing.

I played with this a little bit last summer, before the 1.0 release. They definitely had a ways to go before being able to compete head to head with Nuke, but they've been adding features and stability amazingly quickly. The developers seem to be really pragmatic and have a solid handle on what the user requirements are for this type of software. Hopefully they'll continue to be successful, having more software options is always good.
