Just discovered Synfig

Hey all,

I just discovered Synfig in a CNET article about alternatives to Adobe flash and its mind-numbing price tag :open_mouth: . I’m new to 2D animation and am looking for some basic tutorials to learn about the Synfig interface and overall design process associated with the program. Anybody that can direct me to some simple walk through tutorials, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance…

Welcome to Synfig and the Synfig community!

There’s some tutorials on using Synfig in the wiki; http://synfig.org/Video_Tutorials and http://synfig.org/Tutorials.

Those should get you started. If there’s anything you’re wondering just ask here at the forums.

Welcome Darrin. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Everyone’s friendly :slight_smile:

Welcome dvicory,
Synfig is much more than an alternative to flash. Ask here any doubt you have and we’ll do our best to help you.
