Synfig crashes whenever I try to render an animation. "synfigstudio quit unexpectedly."
The only exceptions are rendering as a png sequence or as an fly file. These work OK. How do I create an .mp4, .mov or .mpeg or .avi movies?
This is how to render to avi/mp4 file:
1. Choose File -> Render
2. CHoose "ffmpeg" from "Target" dropdown.
3. Click "Choose" button and select destination directory for file. Also set filename and make sure it ends with ".avi" (or ".mp4). Click OK to close file selection dialogue.
3. Click "Render".
I have already downloaded it but I can’t find something that lets me open it .
1. Please download installation file from here - https://sourceforge.net/projects/synfig/files/releases/1.2.1/windows/SynfigStudio-1.2.1-32bit.exe/download
2. Run the installation file and go through installation steps.
After installation is completed, you can start application. Here is how to do that:
1. open start menu - hit button with Windows icon on your keyboard.
2. Type "Synfig" into search box.
3. An icon of Synfig will appear. Click on it to start application.
I'm using the Synfig version 1.2.0, and whenever I try to place a text box the software crashes.
Could it be my computer or is it some software glitch? I will be using Synfig for my A - level IT exam and we are required to input text, so any help on this matter is appreciable.
I assuming that your OS is Windows. When you use the text tool for first time Synfig will freeze for a few minutes because it creates a font cache for your system. Just wait until the application start responding again (you will see a text layer appeared on workarea when this happens).
When you will use Text Tool next time there is no delay should happen.
I've been trying to change a circle into a square, but there doesn't seem to be a straightforward method available (like in Adobe Animate). I have also gone through discussions regarding similar problems, but all of them require a series of steps. I will be using this software for my exams, so I will not have much time for each task. Any insight is appreciated
I'm on OS X yosemite, Synfig don't open have you any solution to fix that, My Mac tell me "verification of Synfig" and that's all. The It stays with this error message for hours... What did I do ?
Hello! Starting from October 13, 2017 we are providing optimized package for OSX users, which should eliminate the problem you have. Please check which package you use - if size is about 500 Mb then it is not the optimized one. The size of optimized one is about 100Mb.
Please check details here - https://morevnaproject.org/2017/10/13/osx-version-synfig-now-5-times-smaller/
I downloaded the OSX version and it stops loading when it reads "verifying" at about 2/3 the way during the install. I have tried 3 times. Any thoughts?
Hello Jake! It is safe to skip verification when you open DMG file.
After DMG file opens, please copy SynfigStudio.app into your Application folder and start from there.
If you get "SynfigStudio can't be opened because it comes from a non identified developer" error, then you can solve this in the following way:
Please go to System Preferences > Security and privacy. Press the "Open anyway" button.
I hope that helps. ^__^
