Synfig Studio


Synfig Studio is a free and open-source 2D animation software, designed as powerful industrial-strength solution for creating film-quality animation using a vector and bitmap artwork. It eliminates the need to create animation frame-by frame, allowing you to produce 2D animation of a higher quality with fewer people and resources. Synfig Studio is available for Windows, Linux and MacOS X.



You need development & library packages of the following libs:

  • boost (system, filesystem, program_options, chrono)
  • zlib
  • libsigc++-2.0
  • glibmm-2.4
  • giomm-2.4
  • cairo
  • libxml++-2.6
  • mlt++
  • fftw3
  • pango
  • gtkmm-3.0 (only for studio)
  • gettext (probably optional)
  • some threading support (e.g. pthread)

Generally CMake will throw error if it doesn't find something, so you can just run it and see what's missing. Also note that this list might not be full.
