Occasionally, we'll post a challenge to encourage you practice your art and animation skills with other members of the forums, and hopefully have some fun doing it!

Ok, here is the file, but I'm not proud at all - I've moved almost everything frame by frame
[edit] the animation is to 3s to 4s

J'aime bien cela, the flapping looks random, and the side near the mast moves smoothly while the free end is more whip like
I can't look at how you did it cause I'm presently synfigless, but animating frame by frame is a valid approach (if you've got the time for it!)

Thank you Genete and saorsa :D
Saorsa, I put an explanation here :

The file contains many mistakes, the explanation is clearer :wink:
The animation is only 1s long, 24 frames, so the work frame by frame is not really difficult :)

Great entries so far this month! I love Animtim's - I want to know what the backstory is there... how did the skull and cross bones flag end up in the desert?

-Curve warp
-Sine convert type
-Linear conversion
-Angles offset
-No keyframe
- A cookie/stamp shape flag
(Can someone render this using Magick++ and place a better copy here - with less artifacts?) :mrgreen:

Genete, you're the master!

I have imagemagick installed, but I can't figure out how to get Synfig to directly render animated gifs. But I'm attaching a copy that I got with a quick "convert" action.

No you must have it with artifacts to convince someone to fix the bugs in the gif renderer!

I wanted to test the "mathematical way" .... so here is a proposal with no keyframes:

techniques:
- vertices X variations - Linear
- Spherize (with a horizontal line type)
- Curve Warp (therefrom the text moves a bit too much)
- Warp

B.
- discovering, learning about and liking Synfig, open source animation software -
