Need animation (timeline support to start with)
Hi guys,

Sodipodi has really come a long way and is definitely
usable for creating static 2D vector graphics.

Adding in some form of timeline support, so that even basic
animation can be added, will hopefully start to appear in
near-future versions as it would very much get a lot more
people interested in working (and developing) Sodipodi.

Of all the potential-to-be-the-next-Flash-MX applications in
the Open Source Software world, Sodipodi appears to be in
the lead.

And really, I hope it takes this next step (sooner rather than
later too).


Regards and best wishes,

Justin Clift

A small amount of animation support will be needed if
Inkscape is even to implement the complete SVG Tiny
If Inkscape had animation support it might add so much
complexity to need to split into a 2D drawing and a seperate
Animation App so this could potentially be a massive task.
I think if we want to see more progress on this though we
will need to break the task down into several smaller more
managable chunks.

Okay, but simple button animation (mouseover/down/up) +
achors (see "hyperlinking xlink" request)would transfome
Inkscape into a great&fabulous svg/html solution! ...see
this idea implemented somehow into the thiny "eve"/goose,
but also in Illustrator.

Would like to see Inkscape make use of SnapSVG. It is an svg animation library that could give Inkscape a powerful edge in the web/svg world.
