What is an STK file?
An STK file is a stick figure created for use in Pivot Animator, a simple animation program. It contains data that defines the stick figure's main handle and other segments. STK files can be used in Pivot Animator animations (.PIV files).
Pivot Animator is a Windows program that allows you to create stick figure-based animations. Each animation can include any number of stick figure characters or objects. These stick figures are saved as STK files.
Animator includes many default STK files, which are stored in the following directory:
This PC/Documents/Pivot Animator v#/Figures
You can create your own STK files or edit Animator's default STK files using the program's Figure Builder. To open Figure Builder, select File → Create Figure Type from Pivot Animator's menu bar.
Each STK figure includes a main handle, denoted by an orange dot, and additional movable segments, the joints of which are denoted by blue dots. STK figures can also be comprised of sprites, instead of line-based segments.
