This page considers the entire framework for how to produce videos within an open source framework. Such as: best open source animation programs; how to use MMORPG 3D engines to create simulation; how to do Sweet Home 3D Animations; how to edit in OpenShot or what is the best stable libre movie editor; how to transcode and compress/decompress files; Open Source Soundtracks; Open Source Sountrack Synthesizers/Music Synthesizers; and ultimately - Natron - the open source compositing software.
