Did you view a funny Flash animation that a stick figure wrestle each other. Do you admire the skill of its designer and wish that you can also create the animations as good as you see. Here I commend you a powerful and easy to use utility that can create animated cartoons. That is Pivot Stickfigure Animator which was published by Peter Bone. With Pivot Stickfigure Animator we can create stick figure animations easily and without any artistic skills. Give it a try and I insure that it will not let you down.

Pivot Stickfigure Animator is a unique software, that allows us to create stick figure animations easily and without any artistic skills. We can move the sections of the sick figure and easily create a chain of animation frames that can be previewed as we go. We can use more than one stick-figure in the animation, and even create our own stick figures using an easy to use visual editor that lets us assemble objects out of lines and circles. In addition, we can optionally set animation size, speed and more. The result can be saved as animated GIF file.

Things we can do that may not be obvious: We can edit frames made previously by clicking on them: If we right click on a frame a popup menu will appear which gives us the option of deleting or inserting a frame. The inserted frame will appear infront of the frame you clicked. Rotating the mouse wheel steps through the stickmen: This is useful if one of the stickmen is outside the screen because we can rotate the mouse wheel until that stickman is highlighted and then click the center button. To reduce the aliasing (line jagedness) of the animation, make the animation big and then choose to reduce the frames in the gif options. The bigger the reduction the smoother the edges. Figure Builder: Open the figure builder by clicking "Create Figure Type" in the file menu of the main form or clicking the edit button to edit the current stick figure type. The edit mode option in the options menu allows us to change segment lengths when selected and normal pivot mode when not selected. Tool buttons (from top to bottom): Add line - add a line segment to the figure. Click the button, then click a handle on the figure that the segment will pivot on, then click somewhere on the image to set the end of the line. Add circle - add a circle segment to the figure. Add in the same way as above. Toggle segment kind - toggle the selected segment (blue) between line and circle. Change segment thickness - change the line thickness of the selected segment. Zero thickness segments will appear as invisible when not selected - these can be used to create figures with disconnected regions. Duplicate segment - duplicate a segment so that it has identical length/thickness. Select the segment we want to duplicate, then click the button, then click a handle on the figure to attach it. Static / dynamic segment - toggle the selected segment between static and dynamic. A dynamic segment will have a handle and will therefore be able to move in an animation, a static segment will not. Default is dynamic. A segment is shown as grey in the builder if it is static and black if it is dynamic (when it is not selected). Static segments can be rotated in the builder. Delete segment - delete the selected segment. Segments can only be deleted if they have no other segments attached to their endpoint.

There is occasionally an error when saving as gif. Please make sure we save the animation as a .piv file first to ensure that the animation is not lost.
