Synfig, the Free and Open Source animation studio, needs your help to stay alive!
The project, which began life as a proprietary tool for the Voria animation studio, was open sourced upon the closure of Voria. Unfortunately, due to a lack of interested developers and community, the project has slowed.
Robert Quattlebaum, founder of the project, posted a message on his blog about the status of the project as of now.
The project is not dead per-se, but I am not able to contribute to it in any significant capacity any more other than to be a resource for anyone with questions. Paul Wise, who has all but taken over managing the project, is currently on a three-month long sailing trip. Things have grown a bit stagnant without him.
Think you can help the project? Able to report bugs and develop? Any support helps. YouMakeMedia fully supports what Synfig is trying to do, and wishes it the best. Personally, I know I’ll be seeing if there is any way that I can contribute.
