First of all, I have very little if any experience in Flash (did some very easy flash examples looong time ago). I have basic experience with Photoshop+Gimp so I know about layers at least .
So, the first question would be:
- Does any object you make (drawing, circle… etc) in Synfig become automatically new layer?
I mean, you don’t have to “manually” create New->Layer unless you want to add, for instance, new blur layer etc.
And the second:
2. Is there out there some basic “how to animate with synfig” page etc. where you could see how some very very very easy animation is done step by step (like a ball changing colour)?
I started to study at art school so in future I will propably go through some adobe flash-thingies. However, I would be more than willing to -rather- do things open source and therefore it would be nice to, at least, get a glance in how synfig animation works. I hope that in future, when I get to work with flash, I will understand even more animation and can also apply this knowledge to synfig as well!
