The Libre Pipeline for Animation project is a directory with links to Free/Libre and Open Source Software and resources or assets (3D models, photos, HDRI, sounds, etc.) that you can use in an animation movie production.

Users with tablets and mobile devices might be interested to know that the Libre Pipeline for Animation is also available as a webapp for Android and Ubuntu Touch.

We only list “Free software”. This means software that the users have the freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software. To avoid misconceptions (in this case, free doesn’t mean it is gratis), this type of software is sometimes called “libre software”. For more information on this, please check the Free Software Definition.

To make browsing easier, we organized the software lists according to the following sequence.

infrastructure preproduction production postproduction distribution

We only list the ones that we believe that are or can be useful, it’s your job to try them and choose 😉

We like the Creative Commons licenses, specially CC0 and CC-BY or CC-BY-SA, but not all the listed resources use these licenses. We chose to list resources that are accessible free-of-charge (free as in gratis) and can be used for personal and commercial projects although, in some cases, some restrictions may apply.
Nevertheless, we’re sure that you will find something useful.

Have fun!
