Beginner animators are in luck. Pivot, the popoular stickman animation tool, is no longer being updated and is not available on the Mac. Stykz comes to the rescue!

Stykz is very similar to Pivot. The few differences include:

1) the ablity to create new figures directly in the working window

2) a lack of an installed library

3) Stykz 1.0 when it is released will import Pivot 2 .stk files.

4) you can grow your figures as you go . No need to build seprate figures.

5) you can haveĀ  multiple files open and copy and pate form one to another!

6) has a Hints window

Stykz was designed to be a superset of Pivot, attempting to incorporate all (or most) of the features that Pivot has to offer, plus adding additional features and making it available on multiple platforms.
