Stickfigure program using keyframes and tweening

Postby Palfrey on Tue May 11, 2010 3:02 pm

Another stickfigure program under development is TISFAT. (This Is Stick Figure Animation Theatre)

What makes it interesting is that you can define keyframes at intervals and the program will calculate movements between them. In other words, it aims to work like a traditional tween-based animation program. It's not a done-deal yet, but it's certainly worth looking at and thinking about.

A simple demo was posted to show the basic idea.

Currently being developed is the facility to rotate animations using an unusual form of pseudo 3D.
I'll leave you to track down that demo/tutorial if the idea appeals.

I thought this was dead? As in not being actively developed.

Yes, that's my understanding as well. In fact the list of stick figure animation tools at Stick Central shows the last release date of TISFAT to be in late 2008. If there's more recent info, that would be great to know so I can update the list.
