I just discovered Synfig and getting dragged into it more and more each day - what a great program!
Alas, there are two questions I coulndn’t find an answer for in the wiki/tutorials (there are somehow related):
1.) Is it possible to move objects (resp. change parameters) according to externally calculated values?
As an example take the bouncing ball and imaging you want to move it according to positions you have calculated before (i.e. you have an array of all y-values for each frame, e.g. by doing a physical simulation). Is there a way to import that values and let any parameter have that values for the respective frame? Would be great for animation of scientific data.
2.) Is there a way to List Import BLines, i.e. to create a stack of vector images and have them imported so that Synfig identifies the vertices from frame to frame?
Example: In the Walk-Demo, merely the images are imported which makes tweening hard (there are essentially blured over) and the shapes are drawn over within Synfig to vectorize them. I want that to be automated. Is there a way to do that?
(e.g. right now I do lipsyncing by analysing the wavefile within python, draw vector images of mouth positions with PyCairo and assemble an output.lst - essentially what papagayo does, but without vowels, however as well without the need to create the mouth images for each pose by hand. It would be nice to import the beziers directly and have Synfig tweening them automaticly)
Thanks for any answers
