Welcome to Episode 75 of Destination Linux
Your hosts this week are Rocco, Ryan, Michael, and Zeb.
Big fan of the show, i listen as soon as i can to each new episode.
I thought you would be interested to know that Linux is already dominant in the high end VFX world. I work for a small animation studio where Linux is the pro-dominant OS, but is the industry standard, not the exception.
There are several high-end products which work on Linux, including Autodesk Maya, Mudbox, Foundry Modo, Nuke, Davinci Resolve, Fusion, SideFX Houdini. The large VFX Studios including Pixar, Dreamworks, ILM, Weta also use linux. (CentOS is the main distro used, i heard ILM just switched to CentOS 7 from 6.).
While Video editing is still a mix of Mac/Windows/Linux, with linux being the weaker for video editing it is still possible to create high-end work from start to finish on Linux using industry leading software.
Also Ryan should try EXWM, i now use that after having used i3 for about 7 years.
