Stickman is a 2D animation tool that places cool animations and short films at the fingertips of most users.
Stickman includes a vast catalog of ready-to-use backgrounds, figures and all kinds of elements. Some are available offline, while to access others, you'll need to be online. There is also a default example animation, which is perfect for starting out, and you can always draw your own.
Stickman opens with a selection of options, including tutorials, videos and the option to open existing programs. We'd recommend watching some tutorials and classes first - Stickman's a great program, but you'll need to put some effort in before you feel comfortable with the program.
In general, animation programs are hard to get a handle on, and Stickman's no exception. It offers huge possibilities, but becomes a little complex as a result. You'll be able to create fun animations, that's for sure, but not without putting some work in. Luckily, the program comes with a 30-day trial, which is perfect to give it a whirl, discover all the features, animation mechanisms and extras, and decide if it's the one for you. We think it's definitely worth a shot!
Stickman is a complex - and not the most modern of its type - program, but a little work will allow you to produce awesome stick animations in no time at all.
