    • Share the same functionality : Animation. Guest • Jul 2016 • 2 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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 • 1 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
