Author's Description: It used to be that most of the animations I developed for my game projects, I had to manually extract and align the individual frames. Then I used GameMaker, which helped, but still took a long while.

After learning a bit about signal processing, and discovering OpenCV, I've written a program that will analyse a sprite sheet, isolate the individual frames, and align them for me.

And I figured there'd be a tonne of people out there who might like something similar.

Enjoy!

What's New:

2.0
- A graphical user interface to make the whole process much easier.
- An XML format for sprite projects
- Alignment is performed using a segment of a single frame common across each frame.
- You can name sprites, set frames per second, re-order the frames, and manually shift the anchor for each individual frame.
- When your animations have been completed to your satisfaction, you can generate a compiled sprite file, which contains all your animations, plus the image data for each animation formed into a single film-strip.

What else is on the agenda? Possibly export to a GIF file?

The MasterI've wanted to make my own games since I was three when my parents refused to get me any more Commander Keen games. Now, I'm in my fourth year of a PhD in Telecommunications engineering. Bizarre as it sounds, I do game programming to relax. (View Profile)
