Please note:

There are no limitations on the number, size and complexity of your animations, figures and props other than available memory and storage space!

*StickMotion is a 2D animation App. Figures, however, can be assigned a 'depth' and will thus appear behind or above the screen when animations are exported in the anaglyph (red/blue) or side-by-side 3D formats.

#StickMotion can produce video and images in resolutions up to 1920x1080 from retina devices and 1024x576 from non-retina devices
