Vector tweening

Transform any vector shape into another! Synfig gives you powerful tools for full control on your vector artwork. Just set the key positions and inbetween frames will be calculated automatically.

Layers and Filters

Synfig provides 50+ layers to create artwork and animation of any complexity. Choose from various layer types: geometric, gradients, filters, distortions, transformations, fractals and others.


Full-featured bone system allows to create cutout animation using bitmap images or control your vector artwork. Use additional Skeleton Distortion layer to apply complex deformations to bitmap artwork.
