Addressing Diversity & Inclusion across Open Source Communities for VFX

Emily Olin
 

ASWF community:

Today, we posted a statement in support of the Black community and our commitment to driving diversity and inclusion within our own community and across the open source ecosystem for VFX and animation.

We are also happy to share that we have established a Diversity & Inclusion Working Group. We encourage you all to get involved and join the diversity@... mailing list. You can read our statement here.

Also, going forward, notices of ASWF news and blog posts will be posted in a new announcements@... group instead of the main group.

Thanks!




ASWF themed Zoom backgrounds for community use

John Mertic
 

ASWF Community,

As we've all shifted to using virtual conferencing tools for our day-to-day interactions, and with tools such as Zoom allowing the user to introduce a virtual background to add flair to the meeting ( or maybe hide the makeshift office assembled ;-) ).

Talking with David Morin and others, there was interest in creating a way to showcase the foundation in these meetings. To help with that, we've created a set of ASWF themed Zoom backgrounds that one can use in their community or other meetings. These are open for anyone to freely use.

You can find the backgrounds in the ASWF Artwork repository at https://github.com/AcademySoftwareFoundation/artwork/blob/master/examples/other.md#aswf-zoom-backgrounds. Let me know if you have any issues or feedback in using these backgrounds.

Thank you,

John Mertic
Director of Program Management - Linux Foundation
ASWF, ODPi, and Open Mainframe Project

Regarding GSoC application for OpenVBD project

kæsh
 

Hi,

I'm Kartik, I'm a B.tech CSE final yr student and a computer graphics engineering intern at a real-time film making & research studio. I'm willing to participate in GSoC with OpenVDB, and "Multi-thread Sequential Algorithms" idea really drove my attention and interest. I just want to get connected with the potential mentors and developers of this community. And I hope that I'm not too late to express my interest.

Kind Regards,

Kartik Shrivastava

OpenEXR RgbaOutputFile is flipped in Nuke

charlie@...
 

Hey,

I am having an issue where the image that I am outputting from the OpenEXR library with the RgbaOutputFile function is flipped in Y in Nuke and Photoshop and more. The only program that I have found that seems to show the image correctly in is DJV. Does anyone know why this would be happening?

I have a StackOverflow question started but wanted to put this in front of you all to see if someone would know the answer. Thanks!

Cheers,

gamma function issue

saurabh26665@...
 

Hi,
As mentioned in your source code that for gamma function the vales of defog, kneeLow, kneeHigh and  gamma are fixed for conversion to (unsigned char) preview R, G, B and alpha. But what if I want to store the values of R, G, B and alpha in unsigned short data type? What will be the value of gamma, defog, exposure, kneeLow, kneeHigh and clamp?
