This week Ivan have been working to put all pieces of bitmap frame-by-frame animation together.
Here’s the video demonstrating the results - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzGx6f4rBnM
Of course, it’s still early test and lots of things missing, but I think it gives the idea of how frame-by-frame animation will be working in Synfig.
The video was recording 3 days ago, so in addition to the mentioned features the following changes have been made:
- Brush Tool now works correctly for the case when transformation is applied to the image.
- Painting now works in Cairo mode as well.
- Fix bug with saving modified/created images.
Also, this week Yu Chen have made a radical cleanup for Synfig menu and added a few workspace presets. See illustration below.
Last, but not least thing to mention:
Thanks to the support of 40 people from all around the world, our fundraising campaign have successfully reached it’s goal! That means Ivan will keep working for full-time on Synfig in this month. Congratulations to all of us!
The “Choose Priority” perk wasn’t claimed by anyone this month, so the privilege to choose direction of development stays at our disposal this time. I am not ready to give an official announcement right now, but most probably we will spend this month by filling the gaps in recently implemented features, trying to bring them to stable/production-ready status.
That’s all my news for today. Thank you, and see you next week!
