Cutout Coliseum is a component of Piga Animator focused on cutout animation. Development started in December 2017 with the intent of creating animated avatars for YouTube similar to channels such as TheOdd1sOut or Extra Credits. It is powered by the underlying Gambas Performance System. Its most critical implementation is a grid based system ensuring the various pieces are properly scalable while maintaining proportions and spacing. To ensure flexibility, pixel-based transformations can then be applied as offsets atop the grid positioning.
