Workflow overview

There are multiple ways to do looping backgrounds in Synfig. The one presented here is simple and clean, no need for keyframes.

  1. Prepare or gather background.
    1. Mention trick to keep same size when importing a sif file.
    2. Mention trick to keep the two ends the same (exported, decomposed vector).
  2. Import background.
  3. Genete's trick of the Zoom layer.
  4. Duplicate encapsulated background. Say bounding box width is L pixels.
  5. Move center of the duplicate L pixels towards the direction of the loop.
  6. Add translation layer.
    1. Record mode. Move translation layer opposite direction of loop, L pixels. Two waypoints, one at time 0, one at time T. Exit from record mode.
  7. Add Timed Loop layer. Set duration to T.
  8. Enjoy!



Based on posts by Genete and others in the Synfig forum.
