For that kind of tasks, animation and compositing techniques are pretty similar in Synfig and Anime Studio.
Please give it a try to the basic manual to be familiar with the interface and common tasks:

Postby animefanlover » Sun Aug 23, 2015 6:05 pm

this is a pretty good example so what i should do is mask the pupils inside the eyes layer am i right ? :)

Here is my very simple solution...
I used inkscape to create the character in pieces..

body
head eyes open
head eyes closed.

I then imported each into synfig. Using the tutorial on Udemy, I created a switch folder for the heads. I made a skeleton and attached bones to the body and to each of the heads so that I could make the head nod and blink at the same time. I created keyframes for when I wanted to switch one head for the other to simulate blinking.

Not too fancy, but it works on a simple level!
