    Nice, have you done all those by yourself? What software did you use ?

    Just to extend @BlinkBlink 's comment, I've used it before :P
    You make animations by creating and moving objects on a canvas. The objects have "joints" so you can rotate arms, legs etc. If you search, you can find Pivot Objects that people have made (detailed models like guns etc).
    In the newer version, you can import images too :)

    Apart from that, it's frame-by-frame animation. Some of the "effects" done in that animation (like the motion lines) are done by removing the actual Stick Figure, and replacing it with lines, then putting the stick figure back. Very simple stuff :P

    The editable files are saved as .piv, but when you're finished, you can export them to GIF (as you may have guessed from this post).

    Quick Tip:
    You can write links using the following syntax;
    [ url = ]Text to Display[ /url]
    But without any of the spaces. The result above would be:
    Text to Display

    Yes I animated these all myself, but the actual stickfigures are all downloaded from a site called Droidz. And I used Pivot Stickfigure Animator to animate them c:

    Nice work :)
    We used to have Pivot at school. Was good fun for a year or two, but there were too many idiots who used to just make rude things ><

    Eh, that's expected with dumbasses at school :/

    Yup. Usually involved the built-in Horse and Elephant models ><

    But me and 4 friends used super co-ordination and precision to make a stick figure fly across 4 screens :)

    You must have a hell of a lot of patience

    I used to play around with pivot a lot when I was younger and everything turned out shit due to my lack of patience ha, so I know how tough it is. Good job bro

    Thanks man, my animations aren't anywhere near as good as what I've seen other animators do but it's a start for me at least :)
