Many of our readers probably know, that Morevna Project is responsible for creation of Synfig Training Course. The course was born as result of our experience in teaching animation and was made for the people who would like to learn Synfig animation software in a short time. Unlike most of our products, the course is not available for free. The sales of the course helped us to fund the Synfig development in the last two years.
Despite the commercial nature of the product, we are always struggle to find the right balance between the market and commons values. We wanted to ensure that the content of the course is available for as much people as possible, that’s why we have adopted the pay-what-you-want model (you can get the course for as low as $1). Also, we never enforced any limitations on course distribution (that’s right, you can buy a copy and pass it to your friends or use in the classroom, no problem).
But today we making one more step, that adds one more degree of freedom and turns our course into the truly open product – we are happy to release its sources.
