This page contains outdated information.

The release of Synfig Studio 0.64.0 introduced new terminology and this translated page needs to be updated according to original English text.

You can help updating this page - see instructions here. Thank you!

The list importer allows you to import a text file containing a list of still images and have it be treated as a single animated layer.

To use it, simply create a text file with the filename of each still frame listed per-line. Save this text file with the extension lst(That is LST in lowercase). Import it into Synfig like you would any other image.

The default framerate is 15 frames per second. If you would like to use a different frame-rate, add a line to the file like this:

FPS 24

Now the frame-rate will be 24 frames per second.

Since svn r1540 the list importer allows also import Papagayo output lipsync voice files.

As well as Papagayo only export the phonemes it is assumed by default that the image file is a jpeg image with "jpg" extension. This means that the standard phonemes image files must be called like this:


If you want to change the type of image file just insert a valid extension before the phonemes. It should be done manually as well as the FPS thing.

This is how a valid "lst" file from papagayo looks after inserting the FPS and the change to other image file type:

FPS 24
4 O
7 L
10 AI
13 rest
22 rest
23 MBP
26 E
29 etc
31 AI
33 MBP
35 O
37 etc
39 E
41 etc
43 E
45 etc
47 E
49 rest

It says: "Hola, me llamo Genete"

In this case it has been changed to png.

Allowed image types are:

  • jpg (default)
  • png,
  • ppm
  • tiff
  • gif

There is a Nautilus (Gnome file manager) script which creates a png-sequence from a given movie file and creates a list-file which you can then import into Synfig. See Synfig forum thread for more info.
