Pivot's a simple animation program used to make stickfigure animations, it's easy and fun, once you get the hang of it... Here are some of the animations...

all of these are animations made in Pivot...

PIVOT is an (Microsoft made) SQL statement as well, so, from that certain point of view, I PIVOT on a regular basis.*

haha I know that song! it says, ":spinnaz:".

furthermore, I have created that one

Chuck Norris coined the term "pivot stick-figure animator" when he was first-time gang banged by a group of 8 first year weight watcher females, shortly after he gained full sexual ability at the age of 18. Minutes.


Ich Ben Ein AmericanThe correct wording would go like "Ich bin US-Amerikaner."

This isn't pointless, at least not to me, besides this is Yoda's Swamp where we can talk about anything...I just wanted to know who else Pivots like me? That's all, and if they wanted to show off their animations...

And, oh I don't speak german, I heard that saying somewhere and decided to use it...

Wow, isn't this a PG-13 forum? ;)

You shouldn't be pivoting at your age, that's for sure.

Haha, I kinda' feel sorry for M@RS, this forum is intended for random stuff.

Nonetheless, I couldn't stop laughing when I read his thread title. Sadly my first thought was of Pivot Tables in Microsoft Excel (stupid business applications computer class).

it's actually supposed to be a cracking egg, it's a lot harder in pivot than it looks, I should start another version or another idea...I'm not the best at this, which is why is started this thread, that way I can get some experience...I hope

Is there a way to improve the quality?

I mean, it's not bad and I don't think I could even make one of these, but you can improve it right?

M@RS
06-10-2008, 01:28 PM
Hmm, what do you mean, improve the color quality? or the speed, because I'm not getting this...and yes I can edit this, although it takes forever...

It's not hair and the sword was supposed to be bigger, I made it smaller...:)

That's an interesting reenactment of the Mace/Sidious death scene, but why is the ground red?

Actually, the ground is red because the carpet in Sidous' chamber was red...:)

The walls were red, but IIRC the carpet was silver in color.

Ok, I know Pivot works on Vista, actually, I got an "A" on my Science Project, it was on framerates, I used Pivot 3 BETA, I used a laptop with Vista

Ray Jones
06-10-2008, 06:04 PM
You do realise that, being a Windows program, it is supposed to run on Windows? :)

M@RS
06-10-2008, 06:05 PM
:) I know but a lot of people complained that some programs weren't working on Vista...Even programs made for windows

Hee, it's stoffe walking by!

I could be wrong but it seemed like Ender there was asking about an animation. No need to redirect them. Just let the topic flow. :)

Okay, time to shut things down, at least temporarily. This is getting ridiculous.
