You can use Synfig Studio to create movie-quality animations, web animations, and commercials.
The program saves the artist time, as it is not necessary to create each image separately. Just create keyframes and the intermediate frames are automatically generated, forming a smooth motion.
Synfig Studio is a feature-rich application that has many features, including high dynamic range (HDRI) imaging and path-based design. The utility implements layers, which allow the animator to edit individual elements without affecting the entire file. Simple and intuitive interface with many functions that allow you to quickly learn how to create high quality animations. Also, Synfig Studio has basic features for synchronizing the animation with the soundtrack using Sound Layer.
In conclusion, Synfig Studio is a free 2D animation tool that uses both vector graphics and bitmap graphics to eliminate the need to create frame-by-frame animations and allows you to work faster and with fewer resources.
* VECTOR TWEENING - Transform any vector shape into another! Synfig gives you powerful tools for full control on your vector artwork. Just set the key positions and inbetween frames will be calculated automatically.
* LAYERS AND FILTERS - Synfig provides 50+ layers to create artwork and animation of any complexity. Choose from various layer types: geometric, gradients, filters, distortions, transformations, fractals and others.
* BONES - Full-featured bone system allows to create cutout animation using bitmap images or control your vector artwork. Use additional Skeleton Distortion layer to apply complex deformations to bitmap artwork.
* ADVANCED CONTROLS - You can link parameters of various layers ' directly or through mathematical expressions. This allows you to create advanced character puppets and other dynamic structures.
