here's some information about pivot animation...
Pivot Stick figure Animator (usually shortened to Pivot) is a Windows freeware application that allows users to create stick-figure animations, and save them in the animated GIF (Graphics Interchangeable Format) format used on web pages and, which can also be converted into videos using other software, such as Windows Movie Maker.
Pivot provides a simple, easy to use interface with a few features. It uses fixed length 'sticks' to ensure size consistency during animation, something which is not as simple to recreate in professional animation software such as Blender or Adobe Flash.
Animations created within Pivot are uploaded frequently to the well known video forum, You Tube. There are also websites that allow the sharing of Pivot Project Files (.piv) or Stick Figure Files (.st k) created with Pivot
- Pivot 1.0
- Pivot 2.2
- Pivot 2.2.4
.EXE file instead of the Windows Installer '.msi. There is also another feature which allows the animator to select the stk on screen using the Scroll on the mouse in case the joints were not on the screen. This version was considered the last "official" release of Pivot. This is one of the most commonly used versions of Pivot. Pivot 2.2.5 is currently the most stable version, but the more knowledgeable pivot animators use DarkDemon's (a pivot community) called "Pivot Hotkeys".
- Pivot 2.2.5
- Pivot 3.1 Beta
Pivot 3.1 Beta : Darkdemon mod Darkdemon fixed various bugs with the Pivot 3.1 beta, and redubbed it Pivot 3. It is also available at the same download address, http://darkdemon.org/downloads/ for free. It is entitled "Pivot3.zip".
- Future Releases
Various members of the programming society are picking up Pivot and remaking it. Some are enthusiastic about creating a version called "Pivot: Revolution", but progress has been slow, with multiple programmers each working on their own versions.
A similar program based on Pivot, Stykz, has almost all the functionalities of Pivot 2.25, and many that have never been included in any version of Pivot. Most of Stykz' features are similar to Pivot's. As of October 19th, 2010, it is compatible with Pivot's .stk figures, but is not yet compatible with .piv projects. Stykz is available for free download from stykz.net.
Running Pivot on Linux and MacAlthough Pivot was compiled only for the Windows environment, many have found success running Pivot in Linux and Mac using WINE. Because Pivot doesn't utilize many other DLL experienced users have been able to run Pivot in very stripped down or older Windows environments.
- Dark-Demon Mod
After many requests for a .piv and .stk file uploading site, DarkDemon (also known as DD) forum owner, Adam Davis, made PivotUp, which allows users to upload their .stk, .piv, .stykz, .styk, .fla, and .gif files.
