How do you make a blinking animation


#1

i have been trying for ages cans someone please help me i am practically new on the forum but have had synfig for 3 months so i know where most things are

I found a tutorial here wiki.synfig.org/wiki/Reuse_Animations but not sure what it actually does it made this which is exactly what i want without the eye moving so i tried it but nothing happened :frowning:

Can you give a bit more information? Are you asking how to animate something or how to loop it?

Did you try to put the parts you want to loop in an encapsulation with the time loop layer?

You can download the sample file from the tutorial and study how the eyelids are made.
In any case, I strongly recommend to read and do the basic tutorials first.
