Distro Hoppin`: Dream Studio 10.10

Filed under

I am certainly no expert when it comes to creating, configuring and managing a multimedia studio, but I do know that the hardware needed is very expensive and I also know that the software required to record, edit, etc. takes up a comparably large portion of one's budget.

But what if, instead of acquiring expensive licenses, one could invest that money in better equipment or, why not, sound proofing the REC room? So, if anybody is on the market for acquiring multimedia-creation software, first take a look at what the open source world has to offer and then take a decision.

There is quite a surprisingly large number (10+) of "studio" distributions out there, but this article will focus on one of the newest of the bunch. Based on Ubuntu 10.10, Dream Studio brings you most of the tools needed for creating and editing video, audio or 2D/3D graphics.
