Stick Nodes - Stickfigure Animation App (Android/iOS)
Hey guys PivotAnimation, man this forum has changed, what happened?
It's been a long while since I've been here. I promoted my app Stick Nodes a few months back but have been updating it constantly with a bunch of new features so I'm here to show off the app in case anyone here wasn't aware of it!
Stick Nodes has been my project for about two years now, and the userbase and community doesn't seem to stop growing. Stick Nodes is heavily based off of Pivot, so if you're familiar with Pivot you'll get along fine in Stick Nodes.
[*]Automatic frame-tweening turned on/off with the click of a button.
[*]Great variety in segment shape types allows for greater creativity.
[*]Color/scale on a per-segment basis - easily color your stickfigures.
[*]Ability to create, save, import, and share stickfigures you create.
[*]Compatibility with Pivot-created .stk files (version 2.2.7 and earlier).
[*]Pinch-to-zoom to make animating more convenient and simple.
[*]Forward and backward onion-skinning for precise animating.
[*]Clean, simple interface created with mobile devices in mind.
[*]A "panning mode" to move all stickfigures simultaneously.
[*]An undo/redo system for up to twenty actions.
[*]Add text to your animations.
[*]Export to GIF.
[*]Export to MP4 (Pro only).
[*]Add sounds (Pro only).
[*]More stuff I'm forgetting...
Of that list, some of the most noteworthy features are the ability to automatically have the app tween your animations, the ability to add text and sounds, and a robust stickfigure-creation mode that also allows you to share your stickfigure to the website's stickfigure library for others to download.
And here's just an example of an animation you can create with Stick Nodes (sounds and text added from within the app itself):
Okay I'm done
So yeah I just wanted to let the Pivot community know about Stick Nodes again, it's been a while since I've last mentioned it. I've spent the last 6 months working on the so-called "sounds" update that iOS users were waiting patiently for (Android users had it 6 months ago).
It's a lot of work maintaining the app but I really enjoy it and love seeing what users create with it.
Leave any feedback or questions, I'll be checking in!
I have a feeling that this'll go big. Nice app man!0
Thanks, I appreciate it. I have to say, it does seem to have already taken off, as it's been out for almost two years now. Never intended on it getting big, just something to put on my portfolio, lol. But here I am almost two years after release still working on it and interacting with the community.
@Ralph Obviously it was the fame and fortune you did it for, Ralph. Not some imaginary portfolio. >:D0

@Sean That's actually really not true at all, also stop trying to make file storage happen.
also stop trying to make file storage happen.
Do you happen to have any problem with that?
Did you make this app yourself? If so, great work man :)
I remembered using this app when it was released
