Synfig Studio is an open-source 2D animation tool with a huge number of tools and specialties that help you create a specific style or look with tremendous ease.

Speedy and Capable

Synfig Studio is designed to increase the speed of your animation process. It uses digital tweening and sprites to get the job done, instead of adding onto the illustration workload. This makes the tool ideal for small animation teams and solo artists.There are multiple Synfig Studio tutorials and content available for people to access and get inspired. This also means the tool is being constantly improved to enhance the feature set on offer and the overall user experience. By the way, the tool is available as .deb, .rpm, and also generic .tar packages.

Simple and Familiar Interface

Synfig’s layout would be familiar to people who have meddled with an animation tool before or have at least dealt with general graphics applications. The interface provides you access to the central panel and property panels, all the tools, keyframes and timeline. The canvas size can be chosen too. For a fairly powerful computer, a Full HD size rendering should be ideal. Working at higher resolutions helps future-proof your work. You can choose the frames your animation plays per second, layer effects and types, sound, rendering, etc. The higher the number of frames used, the smoother would be the animation. And that’s just scratching the surface as far as frame management and rendering is concerned.
