Fork of synfigexport.py
Export a GIMP multi-layered image to a corresponding Synfig, an awesome 2D animation software, project.
- 0- Locate the GIMP plugins directory from <Edit> / Preferences: Folders → Plugins.
- 1- Extract/Copy/Move/... synfigexport.py and synfigfu.py files to the GIMP plugins directory.
- 2- (re)Load GIMP to refresh the Plugins system
- 3- Do your stuff and export as synfig studio format and enjoy your project in synfig studio format :D
NOTA : synfigfu.py must be present in PYTHONPATH (or at least in same folder than synfigexport.py)
Open the Export (or "Export As") dialog box, select "Synfig Studio" has file type (.sifz), choose a destination folder and a name, and exports gimp document to synfig's canvas and png images.
See also Gimp2Synfig from Synfig documentation.
"can't pickle Grouplayer objects!!!"
In fact, this is a GIMP issue. To work around, you must select any layer than a layer group before exporting.
