Synfig Studio 0.64.1
Posted by Konstantin on November 4, 2013

We are happy to present the new release of Synfig Studio animation package. This version introduces a series of usability improvements, new features and bug fixes. See the detailed description below.

For the full list of changes please refer to the NEWS file in the source code.

Follow the link below to download the source code or precompiled installation packages for Linux, Windows and OSX.

Download Synfig Studio 0.64.1

Changing the scale value of the group

Creating outline for region layer
Creating outline for region layer
Usability improvements
This version brings several additions to improve user experience in daily routine tasks.

First of all, the Group Layer now allows to change the scale value using the control point on the workarea. This feature is hard to pass by unnoticed - just put anything into group and test it out!

Next improvement is about creation of regions and outlines. One of the very frequent tasks during construction of vector artwork is creating a fill inside of existing outline or creating outline for existing region. The correct way to acomplish this with previous versions is explained in the Synfig Studio's documentation and this process is non-trivial and quite routine. In this version it is possible to easily create a outline for existing region just right-clicking on the layer and choosing "Make Outline" or "Make Advanced Outline". Smilarly, the fill region can be created for any outline layer.

Finally, the Linux users now can use drag'n'drop to import images or Synfig files into composition. Dragging multiple elements at once is also supported.

Interpolation menu
Interpolation menu
Parameter-defined interpolation
There are five types of interpolation for waypoints in Synfig Studio. The default type of interpolation for new waypoints is defined by the special dropdown list at the Toolbox.

But sometimes it might be useful to force a specific type of interpolation for some parameter of some layer. So, new waypoints for this parameter would have particular interpolation type, independently of globally defined one. That's where the new feature come.

Now it is possible to right-click any parameter and choose its default interpolation from a submenu. The defined interpolation is indicated with corresponding icon near the parameter value.


Exclude layers from rendering
In this version it is possible to disable rendering for a layer. The disabled layer will remain visible on the workarea during an artwork construction, but will be excluded from the final render.

To exclude layer from rendering just right-click on it and choose "Disable Layer Rendering". The disabled layer have their name displayed with italic font. To revert layer status back to normal choose "Enable Layer Rendering" from the layer's context menu.

This feature allows to add production comments right into the composition or create a custom control widgets for manipulating complex artwork.

Activating Cairo render engine

Cairo render engine
In previous version of Synfig Studio we have introduced the new workarea rendering engine implemented with Cairo libraries. This is part of ongoing work targeted at increasing workarea visualization speed and improving the user experience.

In this version the Cairo render engine now capable to visualize all layer types, existing in Synfig Studio. Also, many critical visualisation bugs were fixed in this mode.

Still, the optimization of render engine is a work-in-progress, so at the current state the perfomance gain is delivered for bitmap cutout animation only.


Activating experimental features
Activating experimental features

Bones (experimental)
The bones feature is one of the most demanded for many 2D animation software. It allow to quickly manipulate characters by deforming them using a special high-level structure - the skeleton.

This version includes the first results of an effort to provide a full-featured bones system in Synfig Studio, which allows to construct skeletons of any topology and apply influence-based deformation to vector shapes. The current implementation have most internal (core) functionality done and the very basic user interface is provided. Although the user interface is very limited at the moment, it's already possible to produce results like the one demonstrated below.


Please be warned - this feature is still experimental and is not intended for in-production usage. Some specification elements might be a subject to change, so it is not guaranteed your files will open correctly in the future versions of Synfig Studio. Please use for testing purposes only. For the reasons above this feature is disabled by default. Use "Enable experimental features" option in the Setup dialog to turn it on.

For instructions about the usage please refer to the "Skeleton Layer" page on the wiki. For the deeper explanations with some basic concepts please refer to the pages in developer documentation.

New command line interface
Other changes
Add distinction for disabled keyframes on time track panel and keyframe widget
Magick++ and ffmpeg targets fixed in Windows and OSX versions
64bit Windows builds available


Synfig Studio 0.64.0
Posted by Konstantin on May 11, 2013

After a whole one year of development we are happy to present you a major new release of Synfig Studio. This version includes a new optimized rendering engine - the most significant improvement made for whole history of Synfig (since the time it was released as open-source). There are also some other new features and improvements, as well as many bug fixes. See the detailed descriptions below.

For the full list of changes please refer to the NEWS files in the source code.

Cairo-optimized workarea rendering
The major highlight of this version is a new workarea rendering engine optimized with Cairo libraries. This implementation is part of ongoing work targeted at increasing workarea visualization speed and improving the user experience when using Synfig Studio.

Please note, that engine have an experimental status and still a work in progress. Some layers are not implemented yet and it is planned to complete that task for the next 0.64.1 version. Please refer to the 0.64.1 roadmap for the list of unsupported layers.

Also, in current implementation the speed is heavily depend on the set of the layer types used in composition. While giving a high benefit to the vector layers and some types of images, Cairo libraries are not suitable to provide optimization for raster filter layers (like Blur, Sphere Distortion and others). Since the emulation of such operations requires the additional overhead, those layers may render slower than the old software rendering engine. Those gaps are planned to be filled in the future versions by using external libraries, specially adapted for such operations (possibly GEGL).

Despite of the mentioned issues, the new rendering engine is already delivers a good perfomance impact for many usage cases, like cutout animation, for example:


Due to its experimental status, the Cairo rendering engine is not enabled by default. Users can turn it on by selecting "File -> Setup" from the main Synfig menu and enabling "Use Cairo render on Navigator" and "Use Cairo render on WorkArea" checkboxes on the "Render" tab.

There are also some collateral consequences of the Cairo integration to mention:

Cairo render engine development helped to reveal many bugs not noticed before in the software render engine. They are fixed in Cairo implementation.
Text Layer effectively uses styles form the parameters and its render is more robust thanks to the use of Pango within Cairo. UTF-8 characters are also displayed correctly with Cairo renderer now.
Imported png images are rendered faster now.
Library Panel icon
Library Panel icon
Terminology rework
For a long time the Synfig Studio was famous as an application with a weird and exotic terminology. Words like "Duck" or "BLine" are used to distract all the newcoming users, raising the barrier for learning new software.

Finally, after some discussion it was decided to standartize terminology in the following way:

Ducks -> Handle
Curves Panel -> Graphs Panel
Encapsulate -> Group (icon reworked)
Paste Canvas / Inline Canvas layer -> Group Layer (icon reworked)
Group -> Set (icon reworked)
Add/remove from Group -> Add/remove from Set (icon reworked)
BLine -> Spline
BLine Point -> Spline Point
BLine Tool -> Spline Tool
Params Panel -> Parameters Panel
Children Panel -> Library Panel
CPoint -> Color Stop
This is a small change to the code, but with huge influence to documentation. Consequence of this renaming is a total wiki revolution. The English pages are updated, but the translations to other languages are still have to be reviewed. We're asking community members to take a look at the English version of each page and complete the renaming of your favourite language.

Plugins menu

Simple Skeleton
Simple Skeleton
Simple Plug-Ins engine
Some of our advanced users are used to write scripts to automate some complex or tedious operations on Synfig's (*.sif) files. Those scripts are usually written in python. But execution of such automatiztion tasks requires the use of terminal and for most users this is not comfortable. The new Plug-Ins menu provides a quick way to run external python scripts for currently opened file. Now users can install scripts as easy as they copy files and transparently run them in the same way as they use standard Synfig Studio commands. Runing script from menu is much faster than using the terminal and it greatly improves the workflow for advanced users as well.

Read the details about Plug-Ins feature

With this version of Synfig Studio we deliver two sample plugins and one of them deserves a special mention - it is the skeleton template, which is a bones-like system for animating human-like characters. This script is an evolution of "Stickman Template", developed by Morevna Project. With the current system it is possible to easily add one or many skeletons to any document now.

Our beta-testers already started to play with the Plug-Ins feature weeks ago and requested for a place to share their scripts, so we have opened a new forum section for that. Check it out!

Keyframes panel showing activate / deactivate column
Improvements for keyframes
Keyframes are used to "lock" image composition for specific moment of time and sometimes when editing a complex animation with a lot of keyframes some of them could stand on your way. Although the "Lock keyframes" button allows to deactivate past or further keyframes (relatively to time cursor), in a lot of cases a more flexible approach is desired. Deleting keyframes is not solves the problem, since that implies removing all associated waypoints and thus the image configuration for this point of time is lost.

In this version there is a new option to disable keyframes. Disabled keyframes doesn't have any influence to the composition, acting merely like a time marker. This also provides a way to delete keyframes when it's required to preserve existing waypoints.

New command line interface

Other changes

A full rewrite of the command line interface using Boost libraries.
New convert types: Convert to Real, Convert to Integer.
Enable reverse manipulations for convert types: Angle -> Real; Real -> Scale; Real -> Integer; Angle -> Integer.
Translations updated. New languages: Czech, Hungarian, Japanese.


Synfig Studio 0.63.05

We are proud to announce the new release of Synfig Studio. This version introduces new Outline Grow parameter, some usability improvements and bugfixes.


Synfig Studio 0.63.04
Posted by Konstantin on February 8, 2012

We are proud to announce the new release of Synfig Studio. This version will bring you some new features, usability improvements and bugfixes. Please read the main highlights below. For the detailed list of changes please refer to the NEWS files in the source code.

Overshot effect produced by TCB interpolation

Comparsion of Clamped and TCB interpoltion methods
New interpolation method - Clamped
Many users found themselves uncomfortable when using TCB interpolation method, which used to be set as default in Synfig Studio. The TCB method produces fluid and smooth movement, natural for the "organic" motion, but it have some drawbacks. The main reason of complains are "overshots", produced by this method (see illustration on the left), which are undesirable by the users in most cases.

This version of Synfig Studio introduced new interpolation method called "Clamped", which is acts mostly as TCB, but producing much more accurate curve without "overshot" effect. And yes, it is default now!

Groups Panel
Fixes for Groups Panel
For a long time Groups Panel in Synfig Studio suffer of bugs and incomplete functionality. With this version it got the fixes. Here's the list of changes:

Groups can be renamed now.
Layers can be renamed in the Group Panel like in the Layer's panel.
Deactivating layer in the Group Panel would deactivate the Layer in the Layers Panel and vice versa.
When deactivating/activating a non empty group the child groups and layers are deactivated/activated.

Deleting multiple vertices (notice the tangents selected)
Improvements in BLine editing
This release fixes inconsistent behavior of Synfig Studio for "Split Tangents" and "Merge Tangents" menu items - they used to appear in the tangent menu when BLine is being constructed, but when BLine edited with Transform Tool they are located in the vertex context menu. This usability issue confused many users and now the situation is fixed - both menu items can be called via tangents or vertex context menu, independently whether you create or edit BLine.

Similar modification were made for "Loop", "Unloop" and "Remove Item" commands - they used to be called from vertex context menu, now it is possible to call them by right-clicking the tangents as well.

Deleting multiple vertices (or widthpoints) was also improved - now it is possible to call this action even if secondary elements (such as tangents or width ducks) are selected.

Preview Window redesign
The Preview Window was redesigned and updated with following fixes:

new time slider widget
new play/pause, seek to previous/next frame buttons
new stop, re-preview, erase all icons
hidden time tracker widget
enable close button for Gnome 3 users
preview content always stay in the centre of preview window
Other changes
Fix crash when inserting an item on a generic empty dynamic list.

Known Issues with SVG import
============================
* SVG import only works with SVG files Based on SVG XML specification 1.1. See:

All features


Spatial resolution-independence
Most elements are vector-based, and all layers are parametrically generated, hence even when changing the target resolution of a project, the only pixelation will occur in imported raster images, not the built-in components.
Temporal resolution independence
Animation-keyframes are automatically interpolated by the computer, resulting in smooth motion
High Dynamic-Range Imaging (HDRI)
By using floating-point math in the image calculations, HDRI processing allows canvases to internally understand a far greater range of pixel luminance, resulting in better lighting effects, and improved color composition.
Pentablet-friendly tools
The draw tool already reads the pressure sensitivity channel off your favorite tablets, for natural line weighting, and more to come!
Artist-oriented design
While it may not be obvious in this early state, Synfig (and its proprietary predecessors) has been designed from the ground up with animation workflow in mind.
Path-based Gradients
Unlike purely SVG-based vector software, and most consumer-level animation programs, Synfig has full support for gradient paths - gradients that follow along a drawn shape. This allows artists to easily add soft shading to animation without the trouble of painting it onto every frame.
Layers
Synfig supports a multitude of layers of various types; geometric, gradients, filters, distortions, transformations, fractal and a few others.
