Welcome to the world of apertus°

... and the home of FLOSS, open hardware, community-driven digital cinema and photography tools.

Individual projects being worked on inside the community are quite complex and if you're unfamiliar then getting an initial overview can be difficult. Please accept these pointers to assist.

How to join the team (High demand for Blender bods and web developers presently. Details for our IRC channel and regional communities)... Also see Mission Briefings for information on the state of development and outstanding tasks.
