Features and Highlights
Synfig supports a multitude of layers of various types; geometric, gradients, filters, distortions, transformations, fractal, and a few others.
The full-featured bone system allows you to create cutout animation using bitmap images or control your vector artwork. The Skeleton Distortion layer allows applying complex deformations to bitmap artwork.
Most elements are vector-based, and all layers are parametrically generated, hence even when changing the target resolution of a project, the only pixelation will occur in imported raster images, not the built-in components.
Temporal resolution independence
Animation-keyframes are automatically interpolated by the computer, resulting in a smooth motion
High Dynamic-Range Imaging (HDRI)
By using floating-point math in the image calculations, HDRI processing allows canvases to internally understand a far greater range of pixel luminance, resulting in better lighting effects, and improved color composition.
The tool has basic features for syncing your animation with a soundtrack using Sound Layer. Linux users can get all benefits of full-featured audio editors through the JACK integration.
Pen tablet-friendly tools
The draw tool can read the pressure sensitivity channel off your favorite tablets, for natural line weighting, and more to come!
While it may not be obvious in this early stage, the software (and its proprietary predecessors) has been designed from the ground up with animation workflow in mind.
Unlike purely SVG-based vector software and most consumer-level animation programs, the app has full support for gradient paths - gradients that follow along with a drawn shape. This allows artists to easily add soft shading to animation without the trouble of painting it onto every frame.
