first steps in inkscape

I’ve been using inkscape for a while, but I just started using it for animation

Here are my initial results initial results!

Big thanks to Dermot O’ Connor’s great tutorial.

Hopefully inkscape will add some real mechanisms to support animation soon. I think it could be achieved very simply by adding a few features:

  • copy an entire layer (with all it’s sublayers and objects
  • use a naming convention so that an “export animation” would export each layer which matched the regular expression “frame[0-9]+” as “frame[0-9]+.png”

This way the layer system could be reused as frames… just my $0.02
