Welcome to the Synfig wiki!

This wiki is the main documentation for the Synfig Project, a 2D animation and design program. The wiki documentation is divided in three main sections: User Documentation (for the users of the animation program), Developer Documentation (for the people developing the code of the program) and Writer Documentation (for the people that wish to keep this wiki up to date).

Below is a list of all the items for each category of documentation.

  • User Documentation
    • Manual. The Manual is a step by step walkthrough of the main aspects of Synfig Studio and the workflow to do animations with it. An (outdated) snapshot is available for offline viewing
    • Tutorials. Each tutorial is an independent guide that illustrates how to proceed to achieve a particular task.
    • Reference. This is an exhaustive list of all the individual aspects of Synfig (GUI and command line). Use it when you need details on a particular aspect of the program.
    • Glossary. Some parts of the documentation have Synfig-specific naming or concepts. Research them here.
  • Developer Documentation
  • Writer Documentation


To all writers and translators

Please read the hints at Writer Documentation.
