SaVaGe! Animation With macSVG
You know, there’s one thing we’ve found very strange over the last nearly 20 years: various strategies for animations arrive, cause a flurry of activity, then slowly die out, but nobody ever seems to take the obvious to us path of working with Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) to leverage what’s a long proven and widely supported (for flexible values of “supported”…) cross-platform vector animation format. When we did that October Challenge thing seven years ago we used LevelSVG to do it, and did the editing in Inkscape, which was…well…we don’t like to be impolite (unless it’s funny, of course) so let’s just say it is clearly not a native app.
There are many other options, pretty much every vector drawing program supports SVG in some fashion, but generally, they’re far better at importing than exporting, and quality of export is generally suboptimal and definitely not tuned to the format capabilities. What we need is an editor designed specifically for the format, and free and Open Source would be perfect…
