Render crashes the program, apart from using the flv or multiple png parameters

TimN 3 years ago updated by Morevna Project 3 years ago 3

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?

Answer

Hello!


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".

Text box crashes Synfig all the time(URGENT!!)

CIE Student 3 years ago updated by Morevna Project 3 years ago 1

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. 


Thank you

Hello!


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.

Shape tween in Synfig Studio 1.2.0

worriedITstudent_1 3 years ago updated by Morevna Project 3 years ago 1

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

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.
