Symel puppet in Piga Animator - Sprite Stage

Sprite Stage is a component of Piga Animator that is focused on sprite-based layered cell animation. It was the original nucleus of the project, starting on August 19, 2008. It remained the primary form it took until its sister components, most notably Speech Generator, were formally split out in December 2018. It is powered by the underlying Gambas Performance System.
