Synfig anyone?

Discussion of tools and resources for game developers

I came across the new version of Synfig today while trying to find an alternative to Spriter.
I cannot figure that one out.
I was wondering if anyone here is using it.

Never even heard of it, but it does look interesting, and it's free :)

If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

i only tried it when it was at early stage where it kept crashing and caused some problems with windows.
I suggest watching sales for toon boom software but if you want one for free, krita is working on a interesting animation feature https://krita.org/item/krita-2-9-animat ... -released/ . You can also make gif animations with layers in Gimp or try the free version of plastic animation paper http://animationpaper.com/old-pap-free-download/ . Still, i wouldnt say spriter is bad, it enables you some badass techniques that can be used directly in c2 and its not just character animation, You could animate traps with it that otherwise would be really difficult to make with just events. Just saying. Then there is that Spine, that seems to be based of spriter but appearently has more features developed for animation... oh yeah, there is also that live2d, that has sometimes crazy sale offers but has interesting features
