Elizabeth Garbee -
Speaking Topic: Open Source Animation

A 15 year old from the US, Elizabeth developed an early interest in open source, installing her first Debian machine (with some help!) at age 9. Since then, her main computing interest has been graphics manipulation and digital art. Aside from computers, Elizabeth is a dedicated student who is passionate about music, and enjoys reading comic books.


For the graphically minded members of the Linux community, this talk explains and demonstrates how high quality animation can be achieved using purely open source tools. We'll begin by exploring different mediums for generating individual images, ranging from graphics manipulators to webcams. After we've made our stills, we'll feed them into an animation generator, learning how to turn our photos and digital images into one of a kind, completely open animation. No experience required; just an imagination and a passion for free software.
