Recently I’ve needed something like AE… but on GNU/Linux and opensource (what else?!)
I’ve found Natron by using https://alternativeto.net/
It looks very promising, but… I’ve seen this huge banner “Maintainer Needed”
I’ve take a look to the git repo and tried to build it myself on my Fedora 29.
That was not easy at first time (I’ve been terrified by the SDK installation script and all these patches…), to finally don’t build SDK at all and just use a simple Docker base image.
My binary is now successfully build, and as I really need this application, I can officially give a bit of my time to help for maintenance and dev.
Fast resume: I’m a senior software developer in Embeedded SW, specialized in GNU/Linux and OpenSource technologies. I’m doing kernel driver, SW design, projects management, dev-ops, etc for various industrial customers.
I’ve also ported Python and Blender (in early 2000’) on a non-POSIX platform, PowerPC based.
I’ve got a bit of free time each day during the next couple of months, so if I can help, it’ll be a pleasure. For sure, I’m not a Windows or MacOS developer, but I’ve some contacts that may be interested by
I’ve take a look to the Issues list on github (I’ve replied for the timeline bar issue with GCC8.1).
But my first notice is to cleanup the build system in general and dependencies, at least for GNU/Linux based platforms. It looks like a nightmare to maintain.
