Pivot Stick Figure Animator( Pivot Animator ) user review by James Meyette

By James Meyette

On Monday, August 4, 2014

Pivot Animator formerly known as Pivot Stick Figure Animator(Name was too long) is a fun tool to use for bringing stick figures to life and using them to tell whatever you can dream even though this tool is only available for the Windows Operating system it is cool and easy to use even for people who have no animation experience.

It can be used to make animations of all types just by moving the different node areas on your stick figure character into different positions and then capturing the key frame. Software such as this has been used to create some really cool stick figure animations.

You can get a copy of Pivot Animator for free and use it commercially for free as well the only big downfall of this product is that it is supported by some heavy ads that can sometimes get fairly annoying but this is how the developer has decided to make their money rather than charging for it which they could have done making it less accessible.

Overall Pivot Animator is a great free tool to be used by any whether an experienced animator or someone just looking to delve into the animation world a little bit.

Pros

  • Easy to use for beginners and experts
  • Free use forever no matter what your reason for use is

Cons

  • Heavy on the amount of ads that are used to pay for it

You have been drawing stick figures since you were a kid! Isn’t it time to animate them and create incredible videos with your work?

How to use

Pivot Stickfigure Animator is a complex program. Simple in appearance, the software hides a surprising tool full of possibilities.

Different tools and options will help us to create our stick-figure, and provide different backgrounds for our animation. Just assemble the figure with the nodes and joints and start your animation. Frame-by-frame, the program will recognize different stickfigure positions and, thanks to the previewed screen, will show us the whole animation chain.

Be as creative as you want. As you can see from the official website videos, your time and skills are the only limits to your creation. Generate as many animations as you want, and create an animation chain with different camera angles, backgrounds or even 3D movements.

Move and resize the stickman to set it on the screen, or even set a pivot on your own personal photos and animate you and your friends in a really easy and intuitive way. Used with a video editor program, you can add music and sound effects to your animations and create full cartoon movies, just like the South Park series.

From time to time the developers create animation competitions through their website to maintain the stick figure animation spirit.

Be as creative as you want. Your time and skills are the only limits to your creation.
