Hi all! Brand new to the board, having just registered. First, my apologies for not knowing if this topic might already be covered elsewhere?
Now, straight to the point:
As a die-hard convert to Linux (Ubuntu) from Windows (no dual-boot here!) need to accomplish the specific task of creating a whiteboard animation from scratch using Synfig. This will be text-only with voice-over (which I am aware that I will need a separate audio editing program to accomplish).
I’ve already written each ‘frame’ or ‘screenshot’ of text as i would like for it to sequentualy appear - just need to know how to produce the ‘writing hand’ to write out the text live on the screen as demonstarated in this video: youtube.com/watch?v=qLBMUwMfrtU
Settled on Synfig from reading reviews of various similar programs compatible with Linux. Appears to be a rich program of professional-grade quality.
Just need to cut my learning curve down to ‘zero’ if possible?
Presuming that Synfig can accomplish what I am seeking, would be eternally grateful to whoever might get me jump-started in as much of a ‘step-by-step’ manner as possible?
Thanks in advance for any help!
