    • The primary application of Animate/Flash is web. Synfig uses vector graphics, but is for bitmap exporting (movies) which can't be easily transferred by web like Canvas/HTML5/JS, except you have a powerful hosting and bandwidth to share users with huge and CPU-demanding videos. Total lack of interactivity in animations is another problem. Guest • May 2017 • 5 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It does not allow for easy frame by frame animation like adobe flash. Guest • Aug 2016 • 21 agrees and 10 disagrees Disagree   Agree
