Open-source 2D Animation Software

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)
  • Pen tablet-friendly tools
  • Sound support
  • Linking data on file- or parameter-level
  • Automatic animation using mathematical functions
