i’m new to synfig and animation altogether, so my question might be simple to some people.
I downloaded it yesterday and as soon as I saw it I realized it was much more complicated than I expected (I’m used to using Paint and Moviemaker). So I started playing with it. I had trouble with pretty much everything and was confused by all the layers. After a few hours I had only managed to successfully create a black background.
Later on I noticed that all the shapes I tried to add didn’t appear on the canvas. I tried turning certain layers on and off but that didn’t change anything. Also when I click on the layer with the shape, all of those little “dots” show up (meaning I can move the shape, angle it etc…) but I still can’t actually see it.
Is it not working or is a program like this just too complicated for a beginner? thanks… ._.
