Trying out Synfig animation software

Here is my first attempt of making an animation with the Synfig animation software. It is freeware to be found at It is a complex program. I have been watching a couple of youtube movies about the program.

The rendering of the gif was not working so well. I figured out that if I exported the frames separatly and imported them as layers in Gimp then Gimp could render the Gif much better. It was not possible to render to other formats so easy.

I was born 1967 in Stockholm, Sweden. I grew up in the small village Vågdalen in north Sweden. 1989 I moved to Umeå to study Computer Science at University of Umeå. 1995 I moved to the Netherlands where I live in Almere not far from Amsterdam.

Here on this site I let you see my creations.
