“...That was the original idea from day one - the elimination of the tweening process. But it is certainly not the only feature of Synfig that makes it unique. In addition to eliminating the tweening process, I also wanted Synfig to be used for pretty much every part of production except story-boarding and editing.”

Today we are happy to publish new testing snapshots from Synfig development tree. Those builds include the Sound Layer feature, which was implemented as result of our monthly fundraising campaign in May 2014. Check out the video below for demonstration.
Now you can download the installation packages for latest development buildsand test the Sound Layer feature at its current status, without compiling anything by hand.
Here I would like to thank all contributors, who supported our fundraising campaign back then in May, and thus made the development of Sound Layer possible. Many thanks to:
Although the feature was available in the source development tree a while ago, it took a lot of time to deliver it into installation packages for all platforms. This is because the implementation relies on many new external libraries (MLT Framework, libavcodec and their dependencies), so they have to be properly packed. The most time was spent with packages for (surprise!) Linux. To make things work we have completely rewritten our Linux build system, which was the oldest (and actually the most outdated) part of our packaging infrastructure. Now, with this step behind, I believe it will be a lot easier to package the latest Gtk3 features, which are still waiting for their time. But that will be another story.
