Create stunning stick figure, cut-out-style or stop-motion animations. In StickMotion Animation you can even combine all 3 to produce some really amazing results. StickMotion includes many professional features that you'd normally only find in top-end animation packages, such as automatic lip-synching. Record some speech and StickMotion will analyse the sound to produce realistic looking mouth movements for you - this is much more than opening and closing mouths with volume changes!

StickMotion can produce full high definition video (1920x1080) at 60 frames per second from Retina devices (non-Retina devices can produce resolutions up to 1024x576). Through a process called 'tweening' StickMotion can also automatically add intermediate frames into your animations i.e. between those that you create. This can dramatically improve the smoothness of your animations.
StickMotion can also produce anaglyph (red/blue) and side-by-side 3D video or images as well - so add some extra depth to your animations!
Please note, however, that StickMotion is 2D animation software - the 3D export options may be used to add depth to your animations but your figures will still remain flat.
Export video or a sequence of images
Choose a frame rate between 1 and 60 fps and
resolutions up to 1920x1080 from Retina devices or
1024x576 from non-Retina devices
Add tweens for super smooth results
Select a range of frames to export
Export in anaglyph (red/blue) or
