Is it possible to create animator vs animation from Synfig


#1

Hello, Although I’m fond of Alan Becker’s animation creative on wrecking desktop.
but I’m very disappoint that he doesn’t have any skills on other software than just Adobe it’s annoying.
Also I never seen anyone make stickman fighting & rampage on desktop from other software at all.
So I’d like to ask is it possible to do with Synfig? Do I need other kinds of softwares to help with Synfig?
or just Synfig is already enough?

I’m interest about:

  1. Making stickman rampaging on Debian XFCE or Xubuntu desktop.
    By convert Flash tutorials from Alan Becker’s to Synfig or other animation, vdo editing software which kind of rough jobs.
    I never seen anyone making for Linux so I want to make one.
  2. Making my character description on desktop along with my video tutorials something like this:

Hi and welcome here :slight_smile:
Yes, you can absolutely do such animations with Synfig (with skeleton/bones) but you will have to have some prepare for this:

  • Record your tutorial/desktop first
  • Load it in a non-linear video editor and export a sequence as images (try to keep them short)
  • Load the sequence of images in Synfig, as background reference (keep the same image size as the video)
  • Do your animation
  • Remove the background
  • Export the animation as sequence of transparent PNG
  • Import the images in the NLV editor as a new sequence, at the same starting position as the previous one
  • Produce your video

It should be fine :slight_smile:
