    • On the newest version (2.0.3), you just need to go press the frame you want it to be, for example frame 51, and then find the thing that said sounds and then import a sound. Hope this helped you.

    • If tweening, it’s best to tap “don’t tween this frame” button.
      If not tweening, just make big spaces between frames.
      That’s if you want no smoothness.

      If you do…
      If not tweeening, make big spaces between frames but don’t space them too far apart.
      Hope this helps.

  1. Is the Stick Nodes DEMON real? People keep saying it’s real. They say it happens at 3:00 AM or 4:00 AM. Please tell me if it’s real or if it’s a joke or prank.

  2. What would a good app be for changing my exported “gifs” into an actual animation? I saw the little message after I exported it, and I tried this one app, but it just took the thumbnails of the videos and put them together

    • Do you mean on iOS? Because on iOS GIFs don’t play.

      There’s an app called “Gif Viewer” which is free and does the job nicely.

      But if you were to send/upload that GIF file, it would play/function properly on other devices. It’s just iOS itself doesn’t have functionality for GIFs (why, I have no idea).

  3. Can you Ralph or anyone else who knows how to please make a tutorial on how to make movable hair on figures for the people who are stumped on that. And maybe someone make an erza figure (erza Scarlett of fairy tail)

    • Well making moveable hair is just like making moveable anything.

      What you want to know is just how to make hair, but that’s really like asking how to draw a giraffe.

      You kinda just…make hair/draw it. You need an idea of what you want it to look like (maybe use a background image as a reference?) and then start adding nodes to a stickfigure’s head.
