Importing image sequences¶
The list importer allows you to import a text file containing a list of still images and have it be treated as a single animated layer.
To use it, simply create a text file with the filename of each still
frame listed per-line. Save this text file with the extension
lst (That is
LST in lowercase). Import it into Synfig like you
would any other image.
Important for lst file creation
The list importer is quite sensitive and may fail to import if the .lst file contains extra space caracters or non unix line terminator.
See this forum thread for more info.
The default framerate is 15 frames per second. If you would like to use a different frame-rate, add a line to the file like this:
Now the frame-rate will be 24 frames per second.
The list importer allows also import Papagayo output lipsync voice files.
As well as Papagayo only export the phonemes it is assumed by default that the image file is a jpeg image with “jpg” extension. This means that the standard phonemes image files must be called like this:
If you want to change the type of image file just insert a valid extension before the phonemes. It should be done manually as well as the FPS thing.
This is how a valid “lst” file from papagayo looks after inserting the FPS and the change to other image file type:
It says: “Hola, me llamo Genete”
In this case it has been changed to png.
Allowed image types are:
SVG (since 1.5.2)
Convert-movie-to-png-seq.sh: Nautilus (Gnome file manager) script which creates a png-sequence from a given movie file and creates a list-file which you can then import into Synfig. By Rylleman, Synfig forum thread for more info,
