Synfig vs Coa Tools


im new in the animation world and i want to learn motion graphics and bone animation.
i found Synfig and installed the development version,then i got the Synfig video course from 2015 i think…
and that is a problem…beginners like me needs more tutorials and the only tutorials i found are old unfortunately…
now i find out Morevna Project made Pepper & Carrot with Coa Tools!
what you recommend for me to use?
Synfig or Coa Tools?


Hi good day.
I use Synfig deformation layers and Bones its easy when you use the cut mask tool, i use CoaTools like 2 time but because I was really new blender user i just make something basic, but both are great options i think that coatools in blender could have more options because you can subdivide the mesh of every part, for the moment I preffer use synfig because I know better how it works (I use it since 0.64) + Im learning blender to.

About synfig tutorials, you can apply it on the newones, and I learning a loot just see Morevna videos


thanks for the help lobozamora:)
btw what is cut mask tool?
any video for me to learn about?
is synfig capable of doing this?


Thats animation is beautifull, but you must take in count it will take a loot of work to get a good result like that.

The “Mask cut” tool is that tool that look like a red scissors

You can looking here in action that permit you separeted a png image to make an animation


COA Tools. Or Just Blender even.
