In my efforts to explore the use of technology in art and social change. Looking at few ideas in creating new media installation art. Following my friend Prayas's advice I first looked at Animata developed by Budapest Kitchen.
The software is not currently in active development. Though I was able to compile it on Ubuntu gnu/Linux machine using the latest code. They were some stability issues.
Here are the instructions to compile and run Animata on Ubuntu LTS.
# Download Animata from https://code.google.com/archive/p/animata/source/default/source $ wget https://storage.googleapis.com/google-code-archive-source/v2/code.google.com/animata/source-archive.zip # Uncompress the archive $ unzip source-archive.zip # Change direction into animata source directory $ cd animata/trunk # Install the dependencies $ sudo apt-get install scons $ sudo apt-get install libfltk1.1* # Build $ scons # Run the build $ ./build/animata
That's all folks. Please let me know your experiences with Animata.
