Pivot Stickfigure Animator, also known as the Pivot, is a program used for creating stick-figure animations then saving them to animated GIF (Graphics Interchangeable Format) format, which can be used online. Using this program, users can create their own stick figures then load the user’s backgrounds. The user interface offers all the functions and tools offered by the program. These functions can be found at the user interface’s left side. Creating stick figure requires the user to move the red dots on the stick man. After creating the figure, users then have the option to change colors as well as add backgrounds.
This program also allows users to preview how the animated figure moves. It also has the ability to put the animation on repeat. Pivot Stickfigure Animator provides settings for animation dimensions. This is found at the program’s Options window. To modify the animation dimensions, users only have to input the desired height and width values. The animated output can also be converted to videos with the help of supported external program such as Windows Movie Maker. The program also utilizes fixed length “sticks”. This allows users to get size consistency when constructing animation. Animated images/video can be uploaded to popular websites such as YouTube.
