Pivot is a simple program with which you can create simple stickman-like animations.

The interface of the program is quite simple, and you can get started immediately, even if you know nothing.

In the work frame we will see a simple figurine that we can completely move so that we can move the parts of the body.

The little man is quite articulate and we can move him in the same way and face. After each move, we have to press "Space" to create a new frame, and then continue. In each frame we move the character or parts of his body little by little in each frame.

Besides the "default" little man we also have a collection of objects and characters that we can find in: File / Upload character

In addition to the collection of characters available, we can create a character ourselves, or we can find a lot of characters created by other Pivot users online.

How you can distribute the animation after you've done it

The animations you make, you can save to work on them later or you can export them in GIF or AVI format.

It goes without saying that the GIF runs in the loop and the AVI runs like a movie, which eventually stops. Depending on what you want to get, choose the right export format.

  1. Howdy,
    Can you make a tutorial on how to protect your data from the new Windows attack breaches?
    As we know recently, Windows 10 again has security issues where hackers attack PCs around the world.
    Until the updates come, I suppose we need to uninstall some vulnerable things from windows.
    Maybe you can help us as usual 🙂
    Apologetically apologize to the subject.

    Hello. You can also recommend me a simple program that I can use in my work.
    I work in polystyrene insulation and I want to be able to cut the boards that meet windows or doors. So I need a program where I can draw the place of windows and doors in 2D and then divide the screen into rectangles of 1 X 0.5m. If there is such a thing, I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you!
