.stykz File Extension

Developer: Sons of Thunder Software
File type: Stykz Animation File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .stykz. Files with the file extension .stykz can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .stykz files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .stykz file?

A Stykz animation file contains digital 2D objects and elements along with animated movement configurations and settings. The digital 2D image storage specifications implemented into these Stykz animation files make it possible for a user of the Stykz application to configure moving points in the 2D images stored in the Stykz animation file. These moving points can then be manipulated and saved as animated sequences. The encoding standards implemented into these Stykz animation files allow the Stykz program to store the content in these Stykz animation files in the STYKZ file format. Affixed with the .stykz extension, these Stykz animation files can also be combined to produce a longer stick figure animation. Timelines and other metadata details associated to the Stykz animation file are also stored in the corresponding STYKZ file by the author of the animated Stykz stick figure. The Stykz application is categorized as a simple 2D stick figure animation and development program, similar to the Stickfigure Animator application from Pivot.

how to open a .stykz file?

Launch a .stykz file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .stykz file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .stykz files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .stykz file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .stykz file will open the correct application.

Stykz is a freeware that creates multi-platform stick-figure animation developed by Sons of Thunder Software, Inc.

Among its features are Tools like Select tool used in moving figures and pivoting segments around the nodes. Subselect tool allows user to pick individual segments and change their properties, another is PolyFill that fills in areas of a stick figure by drawing a polygon attached to the nodes. Add line and add circle tools let user draw new lines and circle in an existing figure. It also has a figure manipulation feature that allows rotating, scaling, and moving of figures. Aside from that Stykz permits stick-figure importation of Pivot 2.x and 3.x stick files. It supports Windows XP/OS, also available in Macintosh while version for Linux is still under development.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .stykz files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .stykz. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
