    Part 1, The basics
    For this, I will be using pivot 3

    Getting to know your interface

    For a video explaining all of what I'm going to show you. Go here

    Well, to start off, you should go to file>create new figure type:

    Then you should see a window like this:

    Now, lets get things sorted out:

    1. Creates a new line joint. Commonly used for arms and legs. You must add it to either an origin, or a joint. (see 8 & 9)
    2. Creates a new circle joint. Commonly used for heads. You must add it to either an origin, or a joint. (see 8 & 9)
    3. Changes a circle joint to a live joint, and vice versa.
    4. Changes the thickness of a joint. Up for thicker, down for thinner.
    5. Creates a duplicate of the currently selected joint.
    6. Makes a joint static or dynamic. A dynamic stick is moveable while in pivot, while a static stick does not move unless the joint it's attached to does.
    7. Deletes the currently selected joint.
    8. The origin (orange). It is what moves the stick figure around.
    9. Joints (red). They can twist and turn around the origin.
    10. File and options. We will get to that now.

    Ok, so now you need to see what "File" and "Option" do.


    1. Creates a new stick figure project.
    2. You can open a stick figure and edit it, or continue on an unfinished stick figure.
    3. Save your stick figure.
    4. Save your stick figure with a certain name.
    5. Add your stick figure to your current animation. Make sure to save your stick before you do this!
    6. Closes the stick figure builder window.


    1. Undoes the last move made. Eg: "Undo delete," "Undo move."
    2. Changes into and out of edit mode. When in edit mode you will be able to make a stick longer and shorter. Make sure to go out of edit mode when you want to change the stick figure's "pose."

    Basic Sticks
    Making your stick:

    -First, make a joint off of the original.
    -Resize the joints (thicker) and make the upper back shorter then the lower back.
    -Add arms. The upper arm should be shorter then the lower arm.
    -add a neck, and make it really thin.
    -add a head to the neck, crank up the thicknes, and fill in anything left with static lines.
    -add some legs, the lower legs should be longer then the upper legs.
    -(Optional) add some feet, make sure they arent to long.

    Using your stick:
    Look at some tutorials, and animate!

    "Jesus would never be elected president, how many right-wing Christians are going to vote for a liberal Jew? He's from the middle east and he looks like a goddamn hippie. The FOX network would crucify him, if he hadn't already been arrested as a terrorist."
