A Sprite Creation and Animation Tool
by Denis Nickoleff on 03/30/12 04:09:00 am

The following blog post, unless otherwise noted, was written by a member of Gamasutra’s community.
The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company.

 

So some colleagues and I were complaining to each other about how there's no easy spriting tool that exists which is also capable of easily animating said sprites.

Lo and behold I am crusing through the internet and find this on kickstarter:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/539087245/spriter

They need support to get the ball rolling, currently 29 days left. I really think anyone who does a lot of 2d sprite work in any game engine, particularly any indies out there that have to do a lot as a one-man / one-girl show.

From their Kickstarter page;

    Spriter is a powerful animation tool for creating highly detailed 2d real-time game characters and effects in an intuitive, visual editor. The characters are saved to a format that allows game engines to produce higher quality visuals, while also using less video ram, and requiring less disk space per frame than traditional 2d sprite animation. 

Check it out and consider supporting it if it seems like something you would find useful, perhaps invaluable.
