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.
