Make stunning animations anytime and anywhere on your iPad with StickMotion Animation! Create and animate everything from simple stick figures through to cut-out-style figures built from your own images. Make your characters talk quickly and easily with automatic lip synching. Add sounds, music, background images and video from your library. Pan and zoom a virtual camera to setup your scenes. StickMotion is designed to get you going in the world of frame-by-frame animation.


● Stick figure animations
● Cut-out style animations

● Pivot (version 2) figures/props

● Music and sound effects (or record your own audio)

● Anaglyph (red/blue) or side-by-side 3D video*
● Frames as individual images (transparency in exported frame images is not supported)

* Please note that StickMotion is 2D animation software - the 3D output options may be used to add depth to your animations but your figures will remain 'flat'.


● Automatic lip-synching - record speech and StickMotion will animate mouths
● 3D video/image output - add some depth to your 2D animations!
● Automatic generation of intermediate frames to produce super smooth animations
● Instant previews and previews whilst scrubbing
● A virtual camera - pan and zoom to make your scenes more dynamic
● Adjustable onion-skins to easily see the difference between frames

● Advanced image tinting and blending - animate colour and opacity changes
● The ability to substitute and adjust the images within figures whilst animating
● And loads of help to get you started

Of course, if you'd like something more professional with a LOT more features then please look for 'Animation Pro' on the App Store!

Please note:

There are no limitations on the number, size and complexity of your animations, figures and props other than available memory and storage space!

*StickMotion is a 2D animation App. Figures, however, can be assigned a 'depth' and will thus appear behind or above the screen when animations are exported in the anaglyph (red/blue) or side-by-side 3D formats.

#StickMotion can produce video and images in resolutions up to 1920x1080 from retina devices and 1024x576 from non-retina devices
