Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and The Linux Foundation Launch the Academy Software Foundation

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and The Linux Foundation today launched the Academy Software Foundation (ASWF) to provide a neutral forum for open source software developers in the motion picture and broader media industries to share resources and collaborate on technologies for image creation, visual effects, animation and sound.

Suffice it to say, I know nothing about film-making or animation or anything like that, but this seems like a great idea. I’m focusing on the word neutral, which is always important with software. And that’s pretty much all I understand about this.
