We are happy to announce the release of Synfig Studio 1.3.10. This development version introduces just one small, but important enhancement – a button, which allows to quickly enable and disable Draft rendering mode.
Draft rendering mode was introduced in Synfig Studio 1.3.5 by our hired developer Ivan Mahonin and it is intended to improve the usability of application with “heavy” scenes. When Draft mode is enabled Synfig turns off rendering of all time-consuming filters and applies a set of approximations to get faster updates workarea. This is useful if you wish to concentrate on animation process and need fast workarea updates while making changes to your characters and scrubbing your time cursor.
In previous versions the only way to enable (or disable) Draft rendering mode was visiting the Preferences dialogue, which was neither fast or convenient. Now you can easily switch Draft mode on and off using a button in workarea window. Thanks to Artem Konoplin for this addition!
