Synfig Studio is a free and open-source 2D animation software, designed as powerful industrial-strength solution for creating film-quality animation using a vector and bitmap artwork. It eliminates the need to create animation frame-by frame, allowing you to produce 2D animation of a higher quality with fewer people and resources.
Can manipulate vector and bitmap artwork
Automatic tweening (independent from FPS)
Multitude of layers of various types (geometry primitives, shapes, gradients, fractals)
Full-featured bone system
Filters and effects for compositing (blurs, distortions, color manipulation, masks)
All color operations use High Dynamic-Range Imaging (HDRI)
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
