    is there a possibility to reduce the size of buttons / text in stickypy? I love this animation program but it's almost impossible to use it on a netbook when all buttons are that big. No screen space for animation thatway...
    Since I'm an animator and not a programmer I won't be able to do anything in the source code if you should advice me to change this and that in this line... ;-)

    Thanks anyways for this great program!

    All the best

    I am very interested in your program, but I cannot seem to install it. I downloaded it, and opened it (with free trial of WinZip), but it I';m not sure what to do from there. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    There is a file in the base folder called "README.TXT", which says:

    Install these first:

    - Python (
    - Pygame (

    Then navigate into the "src" directory and open "" with Python.

    I think it would be greatly improved by a visual timeline down the
    bottom or somewhere and am toying with the idea of adding one.  Any

    In re: export problems - I haven't tried to export, but the export code in has unbalanced parens.

    Wow, it was very unlikely that I would check this page only 3 days after your post haha. I guess I pretty much stopped working on it a while ago, put it aside for perhaps another day, but you can help out if you want! You can email me at yokljo (at) if you want because I hardly ever look at this page...

    Ive made an animation, and I want to show my friends. Is there anyway to convert this .sps file to .mp4? Every time I click on the export button, My window just crashes. So if you have an answer, then talk to me at:
