Have you ever used effects from Freesound.org in your videos? Yeah, it is awesome resource! But have you ever tried to make a proper attribution/credit list? Pain!
It’s no wonder that the freesound.org have a special forum section about legal and attribution issues. The resource of Freesound is free, but you have to pay the cost of maintaining attribution, which is really hard, especially if you make a frequent changes to your project and publish WIP snapshots (as we do).
But for users of RenderChan this is not an issue anymore! Now RenderChan have a special option to automatically generate a credit list for your project. It analyses your Blender file and fetches credit information for all included files which you have downloaded from freesound.org. The summary also includes the list of licenses, so you can be sure that you haven’t included some file with restrictive non-commercial license by accident.
To generate an attribution list just make sure to install the latest version of RenderChan and use the following command:
renderchan-manager –attribution /path/to/your/project_file.blend
Please note, that you need to have working internet connection during this operation, because RenderChan connects to the freesound.org website to validate attribution and license information.
