RFC013 - Renaming OpenMeshEffect into OpenMfx#

Around early 2021, @eliemichel

Referenced in RFC012

Current Situation#

The whole project is called OpenMeshEffect, which clearly states its goal.

Key limitations#

This name is too long, as we witness people try to abbreviate it in practice, and come up with various and inconsistent proposals. Also, despite being clear, the name OpenMeshEffect is not easily recognizable, from a branding point of view.



  • Rename OpenMeshEffect into OpenMfx.


  • This is obviously a breaking change.


  • 2021-06-08 Proposal was adopted at the same time as corners (see RFC004). Commit OpenMfx@d376183
