editor's review






Pivot Animator is a Windows application specialized in creating 2D stick-figure and sprite animations using a set of straightforward actions.

Clean feature lineup

The stick figure is placed in the center of the working environment, and you can also preview the frames included in an animation via the timeline. An online help manual is available in case you want to find out more about the tool's features.

Figure controls

You can drag and drop a figure to the desired position in the working environment and control it via the red buttons. The tool lets you view onion skins, flip or mirror the figure, raise the selected figure in front of all other ones or lower it, change the color of the figure, as well as duplicate it.

Furthermore, you are allowed to join the selected figure to another one, scale it, and adjust the opacity. You can define multiple frames and delete, copy, or paste them, play or stop the animation, activate the loop mode, as well as add a custom picture as background (BMP, JPG, PNG or GIF file format).

Stick figure builder

The built-in editor offers you the freedom to design your own personal stick figures with the aid of lines and circles. You may duplicate segments, adjust their thickness, generate static or dynamic segments, as well as split or delete them.

Exporting options

Pivot Animator gives you the possibility to save the animation to PIV file format so you can easily import figures for future editing options. Plus, you can export the animation to AVI or GIF file format in order to be used on your webpages, or save it as individual images (PNG, JPEG) with adjustable photo quality and size.

An efficient animation creator

Although not as powerful and rich-featured as Autodesk Maya or Adobe Flash, Pivot Animator impresses with its ease of use and precise animation controls. The intuitive function pack makes it an ideal candidate for rookies and professionals alike. It provides very good output results and remains light on system resources.
