It would be fine to have a gimp like GUI in synfig for drawings or if it
will be possible to import multi layers pics from a gimp like vector
graphic application, maybe not tomorrow but one day.
I look at some screenshots from pencil and ktoon but found no from f4l.
I heard about making animation videos with macromedia (adobe) flash. Is
it possible to produce in video quality with macromedia flash, resp.
f4l? I'm not a friend of flash in the internet, I never had problems
with playing flashs, that works fine but they suck if I can't skip them
or while reading a text everywhere the screen is shaking, I have
dyslexia I don't need flashs in the net
to see things moving, that's
why I have prejudices about flash.
