Smode Tech Empowers Creativity with Free Smode Community

Smode Tech, the company behind the real-time compositing and media server platform SMODE, has proudly announced the release of a free SMODE version, called Smode Community. This exciting development will open up a world of visual art possibilities for everyone, including students and enthusiasts alike. In line with Smode Tech’s unwavering commitment to the community, the company is also dedicated to combating climate change and minimising its environmental impact.

Smode Community is a free software license for non-commercial use, designed to give everyone access to SMODE’s tools and allow enthusiasts to explore and express their creativity in real time.

Smode Community is the “most advanced free real-time compositing engine on the market” and it is fully usable without any advertisements, no user data tracking, and no obligations of any kind. It also comes without any watermarks and supports up to Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080). The free software license boasts a wide range of visual effects and tools as well as an intuitive and user-friendly layer-based interface.

Smode Tech’s free software has Full HD input and output, Full HD content and video export, comprehensive real-time 2D/3D compositing features and extensive real-time 2D/3D video mapping and stage simulation features. Smode Community supports ISD and ShaderToy shaders, Python scripting, MIDI, OSC and Spout among others, it also has a complete set of linear and non-linear animation features.

The free software caters to a wide range of users, making it accessible and valuable for creatives. For beginners seeking to explore art creation, students can leverage its capabilities to learn and get their start in the live event industry, while VJ’s can utilise it for small events, asset creating and live mixing. On the professional side, it will also lead to a major boost for the emergence of new video operators. Motion designers benefit from its ability to avoid rendering time while creating assets and schools can take advantage of Smode Community’s features to enrich their educational initiatives.

Smode Tech’s commitment to giving back to the community extends beyond this new free software: it also includes dedication to making a positive impact on the artistic community as well as the environment. As part of this commitment, Smode Tech has decided to donate 1% of its turnover to Team for the Planet (TFTP), an initiative dedicated to reducing CO2 emissions by investing in innovative, eco-friendly and open-source solutions that are making a tangible impact on the fight against climate change.
