Animation feature missing when exported from Gimp

Postby DarkOvidiu » Fri Jul 21, 2017 4:46 pm

I exported layers from Gimp using a plugin , I exported the layers as sifz . When I open the file , layers look like in Gimp but I can't animate them , I can move them . The timeline is missing . Image The image shows the missing timeline and the green / red guy . Here or here

Is there any fix ? It would save me a lot of hours of re scaling and moving and grouping the layers.

I can't find the original post right now, but if I remember well, you will need to define the animation's duration once you opened your file.
Menu Canvas / Properties (F8) / Time

Hoping this helps :D
Always check Wiki/FAQ first! - Use last builds only: Stable 1.2.1 / Dev 1.3.8 (highly recommended)
Official Synfig Training Course - Buttons too big in Linux? - No icons with appimage ? - Google Translate may help
