The author Hello, I’m from China animation enthusiasts, also a animation in China, SYNFIG I have spent about 4 years, but only used in trace lines that link above, only animations only in less demanding place. In my opinion SYNFIG line processing power is very powerful, although there are other software also has the ability, but SYNFIG is more appropriate for my habit. Above is the reason I chose SYNFIG.
But as animation software, I hope SYNFIG more comprehensive and powerful, so sincere as the author I SYNFIG features some of the recommendations made, hope to get the authors of acceptance, developed into a powerful and efficient software SYNFIG.
I suggested the following several points, mainly in order to strengthen SYNFIG animation capabilities
First: want to add a to the SYNFIG independence “frame-by-frame animation”, which means that you can manually added a special layer in the layers panel, in this layer can draw like a FLASH or other two-dimensional animation software frame-by-frame animation. SYNFIG animation, a lot of times we need to frame-by-frame to bridging role turns or other animation generated by automatic interpolation, and with this “frame-by-frame animation layers” then SYNFIG can challenge other professional frame-by-frame animation software, I think it’s a very exciting feature. If “frame-by-frame animation layers” can do free fill color (graphics don’t need loop to the fill color,) would be better.
Second: SYNFIG draws a graph we select two points, and then appears at the click of a mouse right key “link” command, after GmbH were merged together by selecting two points, this is a very easy to use features, a lot of times we are used to. But I hope can in this based Shang again added a features, that is Dang click links zhihou will has two a select, a can let we click zhihou was select of two points will merged to together, and another select is although was select of two points was links has, but not merged, but keep current of location, just Dang we moved which any a points is addition a points also will followed moved. So when we in a binding role can be very easy to add a controller role any one or group of points. For example when we have a role when the entire right hand drawn into a whole, once you have a newly added links above, you can separate before the role of arm or hand bound in a “mobile” and “rotate” layer, so adjust the animation to very convenient.
Third: maybe a lot of people would like to have a feature, that can have a sound track, so that animators can better face and mouth animation authoring for the role.
These are my recommendations for SYNFIG, hope the author can accept. Finally I wish authors happy, SYNFIG animation enthusiasts and practitioners use to have more and more.
Because my English is very poor, using the GOOGLE translation of the above, hope readers to forgive me. If you have strong English ability, man, see the above suggestions, then please do not hesitate to help translate the meaning, thank you!
