Hello I found some awesome sprites but most of them are broken up it pieces so I'm looking for a stickman program or something like it so I can easily animate the sprites.
I already have Stickman 4 and 5 but those are more like movie maker I think not sure I can pull it off with them.
If there are any other programs better / simpler please fill me in.

Synfig does that type of thing.
http://www.synfig.org/cms/ It's called cut out animation, Synfig is big and does different types. There's a tutorial here:
As an added note, those sprites were made that way so they could overlap and save memory, so you should be able to just move them together in your engine.

Synfig is a very interesting tool. I wonder if it could also serve for me.
Right now i have all my 2d animation frames on a texture-atlas. What i need is to adjust the frames and find offsets so the animations look perfect.
