Download the latest version of Pivot

Pivot - Simply Animate.

is a simple software to create animations. Based on stickfigures, the software gives you the possibility to create an animation by moving the joints and nodes of the figures.There is no need to redraw your figures in each frames. The figure creator gives you the possibility to create any types of figures you want.

Antivirus and Browser warnings

Your web browser (Chrome) or antivirus software may currently complain about the website or download links. These are all false alarms. We assure you that the website and downloads are all safe and contain no viruses. The Pivot installer downloads do contain adware offers for other software, but they are all optional (just click decline or uncheck the boxes) and safe even if you do install something by accident. Very often antivirus software flags downloads as possibly unsafe simply because they can't confirm that they're definitely safe, which is why this is happening.
