Here you can find examples of works created with Synfig by the community and by the artists at Voria Studios.


You are welcome to share your work with us so we can see how synfig is being used. You are encouraged to distribute your source files (.sif and so on) so others can learn from your work. Obviously this is only if you have permission to distribute all of it.

ALL of the videos and images in this section were created using Synfig, and are all 2D. No 3D software was used in the production of these videos and images. They were all produced by artists from Voria Studios when synfig was a proprietary product.

This short follows two children fleeing from soldiers through an old sewer. In an attempt to protect his friend, one of the children tries to draw one of the soldiers away. However, plans don't always work out as one would hope. This was the first animated production created using Synfig, and as such has become our “proof of concept” animation for it.

Created by: Voria Studios

Source code is available, for educational use only, do not distribute or distribute modified renders.

Happy Fun-Joy Time Start!

Created by Rabecha Lenhart


Several of these have source code in the synfig source code repository, all licensed under the GNU GPL 2.
