File extension .PIV
|Pivot Stickfigure Animator Animation Format
The PIV file extension is associated with Pivot Stickfigure Animation, an animation software program. It is used for creating animated GIFs and AVI files in Adobe Flash and Windows Media Format, as well as exporting the animation to text files. PIV files typically contain frames of 2D animations generated from stick-figure drawings. The program allows users to furnish the figures with color and add various effects such as chaining movements, special effects, onion skinning and sound synchronization.
PIV files are encoded using an unknown algorithm and are saved in an XML format. They can be created by various versions of the Pivot Stickfigures Animation. The files can be opened with other software programs including Windows Stick Nodes Animator. PIV files are quite similar to other animation file types, including SWF ( .SWF), ANI ( .ANI), and SFA ( .SFA).
Programs for WINDOWS system
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .PIV) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .PIV extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .PIV file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .PIV extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .PIV extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .PIV file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .PIV file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .PIV file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .PIV file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .PIV file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
