    pivot 2 to 3

    What's so much better about pivot 2? I mean I've done a few tests and I don't see a difference other than the cool things pivot 3 can do.

    Yes in Interface Pivot 3 could look better. But Pivot 2 is way more stable than Pivot 3.
    Way less bugs. Still Pivot 3 is beta.

    So would it be smart to have both versions?

    That would be your best bet. Use version 2 for longer animations or anything that uses big stks (over size 500), and pivot 3 for anis that need sprites/etc.

    Another tip is create an animation in pivot 2 ( long or short, most likley long ) and then open the animation in pivot 3 beta. Save as a GIF in pivot 3 beta as it has better capabilities of transfering piv to GIF ending with a better result for posting.

    I don't personally do this anymore as i lost piv3.

    well, pivot 3 is alot better, u can add sprites to it, and more.
    but there is one MAJOR problem with it;
    it has million bugs (well, not really million tho)
    and maybe uve done like some long anim spent hours on making it, it doesent work, and u get really disappointed (that happened to me =()
    so, i whould use pivot 2 if i was u.

    Pivot 3 is a beta and has many bugs, an animation your working on can instantly stop working.

    I recommend you use Pivot 2, it has less bugs.
