IPO drivers in Synfig

This video shows how the equivalent of blender’s IPO drivers technique could be natively implemented in Synfig Studio. Example file: ipo-drivers-synfig.sifz.

Demo Snapshot

O’kay let’s call it monthly snapshot. Not sure what we will be able to keep the regularity the same, but… who knows, maybe we could? ^_^ As usual soundtrack is not included.

Scene 01 – Draft

Single draft keyframe for the first scene of demo showing Ivan laying on the ground.

Scene 12 – Animatic

Demo – Scene 24

Denis has managed to assemble all parts of the 24th scene into his first animation for this project. I suppose some of our readers are already saw this katana. The background is kindly provided by Carlos López González.

For now there are just three working places. Not a Blender Institute ;), but that should be enough to give a start […]
