Frame-by-frame, the program will recognize different stickfigure positions and, thanks to the previewed screen, will show us the whole animation chain.

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.
- Easy to use for beginners and experts
- Free use forever no matter what your reason for use is
- Heavy on the amount of ads that are used to pay for it
