>> AniComp >> Requirements
AniComp is currently being developed and tested under Linux, however, thats not to say that it will not run on other operating systems too. In fact, all attempts have been made to keep AniComp as platform independant as possible. As AniComp has been written purely in ISO standard C++, without the use of non-standard, vendor specific extensions, AniComp may be ported to any platform that provides an ISO standard C++ compiler.
AniComp requires a number of supporting libraries.
|Gtkmm||Gtkmm provides the widget set used to construct the User Interface|
|Jack||Jack is used for audio and audio-visual synchronization|
|Libxml++||Libxml++ provides the XML handling for session and datafile handling|
|cutil||A collection of small utilities used within AniComp|
Although not required to run AniComp, the follwing are highly recommended.
Ardour is an open source Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) which provides the audio data and visual timeline for AniComp. Although not required to run AniComp, it makes working a whole lot easier.
Ardour provides AniComp with the following
- An extremely powerful DAW to arrange and mix an Animatic soundtrack
- A visual representation of the Animatic time line - See the audio and visual synchronized
- Audio playback for Animatic preview
- Audio Transport information to synchronize audio and visual components during playback
