It seems that most Synfig users are happy to dabble in animation. However, Synfig could also be a productivity booster for those of who have a different purpose. I create educational videos and tutorials. This means using audio, moving assets/layers on and off the canvas, and longer play times (10 minutes or more), in addition to animation. These few changes would go a long way toward making Synfig a more universal tool:
- Using the space bar to play and pause the animation. My left hand is useless right now.
- Showing the audio wave pattern in the timeline would make it vastly easier to sync audio and canvas.
- Using a library approach to assets so they can be moved onto and off of the canvas.
Just these three items would make Synfig a player in the education and training field.
If there are current features that could help me become more productive, I’d appreciate hearing from you.
