== Details ==

The purpose of Manchester Free Software is to promote the Free Software

Every meeting we start with an opportunity for informal key signing.
For an explanation of what this is about see:

The main part of the meeting will be a tutorial and discussion.

Blender is extremely powerful, robust and feature-full Free Software
that enables users to do 3D modelling including simulations and
animations.  But Blender is not limited to that, it can also do video
editing, games and more.  This tutorial will be on using Blender to do
video editing and aims to inspire participants to go on to use Blender
for their video editing and more.

The meeting will start with an introduction to Free Software, the
different video editing Free Software available and an overview of
Blender.  Then we will go into the full tutorial with discussion,
sharing and questions welcome as we go along.

To get the most out of the tutorial we recommend that you follow along
using Blender on a laptop, the higher the screen resolution the better.
 If you are using a GNU/Linux distro then we recommend you install
Blender using its package manager.  And, as long as your comfortable, we
recommend installing Blender from your distro's 'backports'.  This is
what the tutorial will be given on, Blender from 'jessie-backports'
which is version 2.74.  Alternatively you can download Blender from the
Blender website which has versions for Windows, Mac OS X and GNU/Linux.
 The latest version is available there, which is 2.77a and also previous
versions.  This latest version should be fine for following the tutorial
and we'll deal with any differences, if any, as they come up.
