Pivot Stickfigure Animator (a Peter Bone software)

Pivot Stickfigure Animator
Pivot makes it easy to create stick-figure animations. You can build your own stick figures and load your own backgrounds. The animations can be saved as animated gifs to be used on web pages. An example animation is included.

A "disabled" msn group for Pivot can be found here. :lol:

Download the most recent version of Pivot Stickfigure Animator Pivot version 2.2.5 (485 KB)

extract "Pivot.zip" then you can extract "setup.exe" it with WinRAR or 7z only, without the universal...

Simon.T makes (for me) a very interesting point.
If you try to use Universal Extractor to extract the files, it will fail.
But WinRAR extracts them with no problem whatsoever.
It's the first time I've come across that situation.
Anyone know why ?

Thanks, posted to the database!

@ JohnW
Hi, John, I don´t know why, but I saw this behavior already... I used 7-Zip and it worked as well.

I hope the the author of Universal Extract will work on this feature, because UniExtract is really a great tool!
I often ask myself: "What have I to ask myself?"...

Ok... this is one of the coolest pieces of software mentioned on this site. :)

Actually, it reminds me of the Animated GIF Construction Set.

Pivot Stick Figure Animator - install?

#5 Post by 1002Richards » Mon Apr 09, 2007 12:23 am

I followed the instructions:
Download the ZIP package and extract the executable file. Then open it using 7-Zip Portable and extract all the content to a folder of your choice. Launch the application by double-clicking on pivot.exe

But it wants to install to my"C" drive not my USB stick. In the install prog only "C" drive shows up as an option. What am I doing wrong please?

Any help gratefully received.

Latest version is 4.2.7
Now comes i form of terrible crapware-ridden web-installer
Program itself is not stealth anymore, settings in LOCALAPPDATA
