Khronos Group Joins the Academy Software Foundation

Ahead of Academy Software Foundation’s Open Source Days conference highlighting the latest in open source projects used for visual effects, animation, and image creation, the Academy Software Foundation welcomed two new members: Canonical and The Khronos Group. Launched in August 2018 by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the Linux Foundation, the Academy Software Foundation provides a neutral forum for open source software developers to share resources and collaborate on technologies for image creation, visual effects, animation and sound.

“Becoming a member of the Academy Software Foundation will enable us to further strengthen our relationship with the VFX and animation communities to ensure that Khronos standards adapt and evolve to better serve their requirements. Khronos is looking forward to sharing information with the experts in the ASWF membership and contributing to open source projects such as MaterialX, and fostering closer coordination with Khronos standards including glTF, OpenXR and Vulkan,” said Neil Trevett, President, Khronos Group.
