  10. Hi. Very interesting and nice project. Keep the good work 🙂
    Can You tell, what You using for lip sync ?
    Remake is very useful tool, amazing work.

    Good Luck guys.

  11. The rpm for Pencil does not work on Fedora 17. Could you please make another one that will work. Thank you so much!

  12. Hey Konstantin, I was just wondering if you have figured anything out about Pencil on Fedora 17 yet. My friends and I are really missing it. By the way I love your Synfig plugins feature. Really cool idea! Thanks for all the work you’re doing, man!

  13. Hi, Malcolm! I’ve just upgraded to Fedora 17 and Pencil works fine here. Can you describe what problem you have with pencil rpm?

  20. Now that Morevna demo is out will you work in adding Morevna branch features to Synfig trunk?
    My main interest is the plugin feature which seems to be awesome!

  21. Hi, David! Yes, that’s our plan to put our modifications into official branch and release a new version. I’m writing a blog post about that right now. ^__^

  28. I need to learn more about blender. I was just browsing internet to find the best 3D “creator” and seems like blender is the one. Thanx for all info and link.

  30. I love the fact that you are doing so well with these FOSS applications and achieving stellar results. So, here is my question: Will there be more tutorials on this site for all of the software applications that you work with? I see Synfig tutorials on here, but not really very many tutorials for any of the other apps you use. Are they in the works, or am I missing something here? Maybe, I am missing something here. Please keep up the good work and also please put up more tutorials on all your apps here.

    Because, I am sure that others would love to know and implement the apps in their own projects. FOSS software is a godsend to the open community. I know that I would love to learn this stuff for my own personal edification.

    Thanks.

  31. Hello Steve! Thank you for the kind words, I am happy you like our work. At the moment we are working on the new tutorial series about Cut-Out animation in Blender. It is about creating animation in the same technique as was used for Pepper & Carrot Motion Comic. Also, there are more tutorials planned for the future, but their development takes time.

    • Understood. It takes time, of course. No worries and no rush. Just insatiable curiosity, that’s all. Thanks.
