  • 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.

Synfig is a great option for animators, but sometimes it just randomly locks up. Must you check this and get more new ways about automation tools. The brush tool will freeze and re-open over and over again until the program crashes. This issue occurs on both Windows and Mac computers. Please take care of this problem and uninstall Synfig 3 to avoid any further problems.

I also realise that rendering of swf would be better done using vectors where possible, but pixel mapped would be a start.

I've been wanting to learn synfig for a while, but without any good tutorials, it wasn't easy. I'll download Synfig and try to figure out what I can accomplish. I was able to make my first animation because of you and the fantastic geometry dash lite devs.
