Default Bug#665042: ITP: synfig -- vector-based 2d animation package

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Denis Washington <denisw@online.de>

* Package name : synfig
Version : 0.63.04
Upstream Author : Synfig Studio Development Team
* URL : http://www.synfig.org/
* License : GPL
Programming Lang: C++
Description : vector-based 2d animation package

synfig is a vector based 2D animation package. It is designed to be
capable of producing feature-film quality animation. It eliminates the
need for tweening, preventing the need to hand-draw each frame. synfig
features spatial and temporal resolution independence (sharp and smooth
at any resolution or framerate), high dynamic range images, and a
flexible plugin system.

This package contains the renderer used to convert synfig .sif files to
raster images, videos and other formats. Layer types include geometric,
gradient, filter, distortion, transformation, fractal and others. Output
targets include JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP, PPM, DV, OpenEXR, ffmpeg (MPEG1),
libavcodec (AVI), imagemagick (MIFF), yuv420p, MNG and others.


synfig already was in Debian, but was removed from the package archives (bug
#612070). Dmitry Smirnov <onlyjob at fsf member org> has recently updated the
etl, synfig and synfigstudio packages to the latest upstream and standards
versions, and he and I would be willing to maintain the package in the future.
Upstream is active (the latest upstream version was released in February 2012).
The GCC 4.5 FTBFS mentioned in the mentioned bug report is fixed. Both of us
tested the packages on Debian unstable and have not found any problems yet.
