“...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.”

Konstantin Dmitriev from Synfig team got sponsorship from Shuttleworth Foundation in the amount of $5000 to spend on full time Synfig development.
It is a total surprise for all of us, because this initiative come from Shuttleworth Foundation itself, without any initial requests from our side. Konstantin says:
They just gave me those money and said: "use them for any of your ideas". Considering my recent LGM report, I found pretty logical to use those funds for Synfig.
Konstantin plans to move for full-time dedication to Synfig as developer in August. Another part of the money is planned to spend on producing Synfig training DVD.
