rain: With Synfig, it all depends on how many keyframes you feel like adding. The more you do by hand, the less it'll look like computer morphing filled in. No, the project is not perfect (for me, it's obscenely difficult to use), but as with all things it depends on how much time and man power you're willing to devote to something.

Dark_Knight: The projects are .sif files, which are XML based and are Synfig specific. Since they're XML, you can even open them in a text editor. As for what image formats and video formats it supports, I'm not sure, but I know for a fact that it's on the Synfig site at
