  • do you have mypaint installed ?
  • are you using cairo or software render in the canvas (i guess software) ?
  • can you try using a png file ?

- Yes, Mypaint is installed. - Cairo is not enabled to render the canvas, cause when I turn it on, I have more freezes. - I've tryed a png file, same issue.

The freeze happens in different moments, but always when I try to draw with the brush tool, using the new frame feature for the frame-by-frame animation.
