Pivot Animator is designed to be a user friendly way of creating 2D stick-man animations. The basic concept is that stick figures can be easily moved and positioned by dragging handles. An animation is made up of frames added to the time-line, which are shown at the top of the screen. This can require more time to create a smooth animation than it does in flash for example, because Pivot doesn't support frame tweening. This however makes Pivot very easy to use and gives the animator full control over figure movement.
New stick figures can be created in the figure builder so that any object can be created and animated.
An animation can be exported in a number of common formats for use on web pages or for uploading to YouTube.
With enough time and effort, some very advanced animations can be created with Pivot, despite its relative simplicity.
