Nice work! Good story too! You have done some nice things. Opening camera move was great. Cat pulling faces made me laugh. Good to see a Synfig animation that last longer then three seconds. I would have cleaned up a few joints here and there but that is purely subjective.
Any progress in making Synfig Stage compatible with the windows version of Synfig?
Synfig stage should work with any version its a web app that runs in a web browser. I was using it on a linux machine but it
should still work with no modification on a windows machine - installing on a windows machine if you have never used linux might make this daunting - when i get time ( and a windows machine, I will document how you can install it)
Year 6 doesnt mean the writer was 6 years old. Year 6 is 10-11 year olds it the 6th year of their primary education.
The tarball of Synfig-Stage (currently revision 41, but better to follow the step in order to obtain the last available revision):
Go in the trunk
click on “view revision”
click on “download tarball”
Install Python 2.7 in C:\Python27 (or wherever you want), including pip package
Install jinja2 and lxml libraries as follow (pip is already packaged with Python since version 2.7.9 )
Install lxml from the installer (not from pip, otherwise you will have to recompile a lot of stuff with VCForPython)
Open a Windows console and type
pip install jinja2
Create a folder for Synfig-Stage
Extract the content of the tarball (-computa-mike-synfig-stage-trunk-r41.tgz), with 7zip for example, in a temporary folder
Move the content of “trunk” sub-directory in the Synfig-Stage folder
You can run the server in different ways
double-click on synfig-scene-builder.py (if you have Pyhon27 folder in the path and only this version is installed)
create a run.bat containing “c:\python27\python.exe synfig-scene-builder.py” (because I installed several versions of Python )
Your default web browser will open on the editor page (the startup takes several seconds)
Don’t forget to click on configure to set your Cast_Location folder.
To close the server, enter stop or click on the red close button of the console.
How did you find it? obvioulsy we put it together for thei project so a lot of resources where already in place by the time we started to put this together.
If you have any feature requests/bugs etc please let us know
Thanks for the reply. Pip already seemed to be installed within Python 2.7. I was having a shell coding problem. After typing the command .\pip install jinja2 it worked and when I directed the .py file to the Python2.7 install path my browser opened as mentioned. It does not seem to work with compressed sif files though. Are bones already implemented? Because when I wanted to add two characters rigged with bones to a new scene the sif file that synfigstage computed turned out to be unreadable.
