Summer Fun

As the summer holidays are now upon us, and I’m sure the weather will turn to the worst as it always does, I thought I would post links to all those great bits of FREE software that are so invaluable to us all here at the centre.

http://www.gimp.org/downloads/ Photoshop type photo software. A must for all computers

http://www.yoyogames.com/gamemaker/ Game maker, great fun for making your own video ganes, it can also be used to make 2d animations, lots of tutorials on you tube. Dont just play, create!!

http://www.inkscape.org/ Inkscape is the illustration software that we use for all those vector graphic images.

http://freeartsoftware.com/ truespace, the 3d modelling software is still available but requires a little bit of finding. Go to the link, go to the 3d tab, scroll through the pages, its on about page three and its Truespace 3.2, this is the full free version, if you go to truespaces homepage then you only get a demo of the latest version.

http://www.acidplanet.com/downloads/xpress/ acid express is loop based music software, it’s free but you need to go find loops to use, they are out there, so get hunting.

Whilst every effort has been made to ensure these links are reputable, and I have downloaded from all of them without adverse effect, Slc and DCC cannot accept any responsibility for their content.

Have a great holiday.
