Unity’s development visualized in 30 seconds [video]

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

Ever wondered how much work has gone into Unity this cycle? How about if we showed you an awesome pretty visualization of the Unity branch, sped up into a 30 second video?

Ubuntu’s very own Jorge Castro made this video of the Unity branch using gource, a tool that allows you to visualize software revision branches hosted with things like bzr and git.

Make your own video using gource

You too can make funky videos of your own projects by modifying the following instructions which were used for this video. Enjoy!

sudo apt-get install gource
bzr branch lp:unity
cd unity
gource -a 3 -p .48 --stop-at-end -s .001 -o - | ffmpeg -y -r 60 -f
image2pipe -vcodec ppm -i - -vcodec libvpx -b 10000K gource.webm
