What pages would that be? The only “trick” is to draw with the gradient.


#4

maybe a new section in wiki.synfig.org/wiki/Category:Tutorials
… and mentioning that you can use it without blur to achieve cell shading could bring you more audience
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cel_shading

thanks again!

I don’t feel that wiki content should be dependant on my personal youtube account. Does synfig have a youtube channel? Perhaps this should have more to do with the documentation subforum, but videos need to be “wikified” and stored in one place. They also, I think, need to be better and much more to the point. I wouldn’t mind making short videos for tool demos etc for embedding into the wiki, but if my own channel is not the appropriate place for wiki content.

Hi, it looks a nice way to create auto-shading, but it seems to work better on rounded circular shapes. I got distortions and bevel like tuff on sharp corners and more complex shapes and it severly slows down my windows version of synfig, which in itself is already slow enough. :stuck_out_tongue:
