best tutorials?

I am a noob working my way through the wiki …seems outdated…the rotation/translation thing is definitely different from the wiki…
what is the best source to learn this thing? Is it worth learning?

Hi and welcome here :slight_smile:

Yes, the wiki is outdated but most of the important concepts can be found.
If not, check the forums.
For rotation/translation, use groups.
Most of Synfig features depend on groups and hierarchy of layers, such as blending modes.

You can find the Official Synfig Training Course (link in my signature) as the Pay-What-You-Want :wink:

And yes,it is worthleaning.
Anyway in life, anything you will learn will permit you to learn better and understand easier new concepts ^^
