How to install Natron 2.2.7 on Ubunto 17.04

   Natron is a free and open source video compositing software, similar in functionality to Adobe After Effects or Nuke

  •     32 bits floating point linear colour processing pipeline.
  •     Colorspace management handled by the OpenColorIO library.
  •     Dozens of file formats supported: EXR, DPX,TIFF, JPG, PNG…thanks to OpenImageIO and FFmpeg.
  •     Support for many free and open-source OpenFX plugins:
  •     TuttleOFX
  •     OpenFX-IO to read anything else than standard 8-bits images
  •     OpenFX-Misc
  •     OpenFX-Yadif deinterlacer
  •     OpenFX-Vegas SDK samples
  •     OpenFX samples (in the Support and Examples directories)
  •     Support for commercial OpenFX plugins:
  •     See features for more 

 Natron 2.2.7 Changelog :
  •     Natron now uses a YAML-based format for most files (projects, pyplugs, presets), which makes it easier to read and write by humans or other programs. This reduces file size roughly 10 times.
  •     Settings in Natron are now also stored in a YAML-based format in a file named settings.txt and are located in the Natron user data directory.
            On Linux, the Natron user data directory is:


           On Windows, the Natron user data directory is:

        C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\NatronUserData

           On macOS, the Natron user data directory is:

Note that this location is also looked-up by Natron search paths for PyPlugs.
  •     The cache system was completely rewritten, and is is more efficient in terms of cached data reuse and memory usage. It is now shared accross Natron processes on the same system: if running Natron multiple times on the same computer, the different processes will share the same Cache and avoid computing the same thing.
  •     Links between parameters are now bi-directionnal: All parameters that are linked now share the same underlying animation curve/value. The notion of slave/master is gone.
  •     Clone nodes are now merely just a copy of another node with all parameters sharing values. One may unlink some parameters, in which case a clone is no longer considered as a clone.
  •     Python has callbacks to allow drawing and interacting in the viewer with custom drawings written in PyOpenGL. A PyPlug may use these callbacks to interact with parameters directly from the Viewer, much like the Transform node overlay handle.
  •     For convenience, a PyPlug may specify a list of the nodes inside its node graph that should have their viewer overlay displayed when the PyPlug setting panel is opened. For instance, imagine that the PyPlug uses a Transform node internally, it is possible to display the Transform node handle on the viewer when the PyPlug settings panel is opened, even if the Transform node panel itself is closed
