Spriter makes it easy for anyone, regardless of experience, to create 2D game animations using a technique called Modular Animation.
Unlike traditional animation which requires each frame to be hand-drawn, Spriter animations are made of individual sprite pieces; these pieces can be rotated, transformed, and tweened along an animation timeline. This allows you to quickly create great looking animations in a fraction of the time while requiring significantly less art.
Spriter also takes advantage of skeletal animation. Create a skeleton using the bone tool, attach images to each bone, and finally animate the bones with Spriter’s vast array of user-friendly animation tools. The result: a fully animated sprite using your own graphics.
Spriter is great for animating characters, user interfaces, power-ups, combat animations and more! Even if you’ve never animated before, Spriter provides you with an easy to understand, yet powerful toolset allowing you to jump right in!
