Question: What is an PIV File?

Have you found, downloaded or received an PIV file, but don't know which software program is required to open it?

Before attempting to open an PIV file, you'll need to determine what kind of file you are dealing with and whether it is even possible to open or view the file format.

Answer: Files which are given the .PIV extension are known as Pivot Stickfigure Animation files, however other file types may also use this extension. If you are aware of any additional file formats that use the PIV extension, please let us know.

How to open a PIV file:

The best way to open an PIV video file is to simply double-click it and let the default assoisated application open the file. If you are unable to open the file this way, it may be because you do not have the correct application associated with the extension to view or edit the PIV file.

This video file format was added to our database by a visitor to this site, but no additional information was provided. We have yet to investigate this file type further, or there was not enough information available at the time to report accurately on the format.

Please check back soon for more information as we are constantly updating our file descriptions based on search frequency.

Tip: Try to open the PIV file using a text-editor such as Notepad, as many file types contain simply contain unformatted plain-text and can viewed correctly using this method.

@Jem and @aaron:

First step:
If you are finished with your work on PIVOT press <> then <>. A new window will open. Look for <> there you can choose <<.PIV>> or <<.GIF>> or <<.BMP>> (i would prefer <>.)

Second step:
If you have a Windows XP there must be Windows Movie Maker (if not search it on google and download it). Open it. If the Tasks aren't open on the left press <>. When the Tasks are open, press <> and chose the file you want. Make whatever you want. And if you are finished with your work you have to press <>
and then <> (this section is under save project as). A new window will open, do the things what I say: <> <>
3.enter a file name
4.chose the place to save the video <> <>
7.wait until it finishes the saving

you will find your video on the place where you saved the file. It is a AVI file.

If you have a Youtube Channel press <>, choose the file you want and there you are.

Connect your iPod to the PC and send the file to the iPod.
