Synfig Studio screenshotSynfig Studio is a free to use and open-source 2D animation program, developed as a strong industrial-strength tool for making film-quality animation using a vector and bitmap artwork. It removes the need to make animation frame-by frame, enabling you to create 2D animation of a better quality with fewer people and resources. Synfig Studio is ready to use for Windows, MacOS X and Linux.

Features:

Spatial resolution-independence
Most elements are vector based, and all layers are parametrically created, hence even when customizing the target resolution of a project, the only pixelation will happen in imported raster images, not the integrated components.

Temporal resolution independence
Animation-keyframes are directly interpolated by the PC, resulting in nice motion.

High Dynamic-Range Imaging (HDRI)
By working with floating-point math in the image calculations, HDRI processing enables canvases to internally understand a larger range of pixel luminance, developing in better lighting effects, and enhanced color composition.

Pentablet-friendly tools
The draw program already reads the stress sensitivity channel off your preferred tablets, for natural line weighting, and more to come!

Artist-oriented design
While it may not be clear in this early stage, Synfig has been developed from the ground up with animation workflow in mind.

Path-based Gradients
Unlike entirely SVG-based vector software, and most consumer-level animation tools, Synfig has complete support for gradient paths - gradients that pursue along a drawn shape. This enables artists to simply add soft shading to animation without to worry of painting it onto every frame.

Layers
Synfig is compatible with a lot of layers of various kinds; gradients, geometric, distortions, filters, transformations, fractal and a few others.

Pros

  • Once you figure out the interface, it works well.
  • Several examples come with the application.
