StickyPy - Alpha 18

A Stick figure animation program

Joshua Worth
A Stick figure animation program written with Python and PyGame. It is similar to Pivot, except with a much wider variety of animation features, such as keyframes.


Numerous fixes were made. Threading was added here and there. The limb shape class was redesigned. Many speed ups were made. Experimental color display was added in the keyframe... editor. Hover comments were added on vertices. The Web site was fixed a little bit. As well as an almost complete tutorial.

    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.

     Joshua, this hasn't seen any activity for a while.  Is it dead?

    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:
