    • 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 • 3 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It has good features like bones and stuffs. Most of all it's open source. Guest • Jul 2018 • 0 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • It has mostly all the essential Flash features for animation and it doesn't cut corners for anything. Its an overall good program to use. I have seen many amazing Flash level animations made with this program and it can still be used for simple low quality animations. It can also be used for teaching students.
