StageTools is a suite of external modules for the Geomview program that provides a means of using Geomview to create animations in the form of MPEG movies, animated GIFs, or video tapes. To do this, you write a "script" for the movie that indicates how the objects should move within Geomview. These scripts use a language that includes high-level control over objects and motions, allowing you to manipulate individual objects, hierarchical compound objects, and several objects concurrently. StageTools also includes a module that lets you create objects for use in your movies or for general use within Geomview.

The modules that make up the StageTools suite are:

The StageTools suite also includes two other programs, StageDoor and BackStage, that work behind the scenes to control Geomview.
