Editor's review Stykz
Stykz is a complex but user-friendly application designed to help you draw standard animations with stickmen, in order to create presentations or YouTube videos, for instance. The interface is based on multiple frames dedicated to drawing tools, frames, stage properties, commands, controllers, and the main stage. If you're unsure of how to begin a project, feel free to look into the well-written tutorials with images. The first frame contains a stickman in default state, so you can tinker with its anatomy and move around pivot nodes to reconfigure segment positions, as well as move the entire figure via the drag node. Each newly created frame is a duplicate of the previous one, allowing you to make subtle adjustments to create a smooth animation at the end of the project. Changing a figure's position leaves behind its footprint, a gray version of the original figure, enabling you to accurately plan your next step.
