For a long time people asked for the tutorial explaining how to use Stickman Template and finally I have come up with something that might be called a tutorial. In fact those videos were recorded in different time (you might notice the differences in interface elements), but watching everything in sequence should give you the whole picture. Big thanks to Anna Orlova for translation and subtitling.
Part 1 – Setting up
In this part I will explain the purpose of using stickman and show how to prepare everything for tracing.
Part 2 – Tracing
The main tracing procedure is explained here. Notice that the version of Synfig Studio used in this screencast is very old – you can see different icons and even Russian interface elements. I hope that will not distract you. ^_^
Part 3 – Compositing tricks
Here I will show some composition tricks that will help you in the tracing process.
Part 4 – Shadows
Final part of the series is about tracing shadows.
That’s it. I hope you haven’t tired of my mumbling. Enjoy! ^__^
