Hi Scirra forum,

I've got a basic question but i dont get the answer. How to get each frame from an .GIF animation. I downloaded some sprites who are already animated (like walking or standing) but to use them in construct i need every frame of it. Or can i use an already animated sprite.

You'll have to break it into seperate frames with a .gif editing program. If you don't have one, I geuss you can use the printscreen key to try to capture every frame, but that could be annoying. :mrgreen:

save as PNG, not JPG. Disable dithering.
If you're using photoshop, there's a macro (Automate) to export each frame as a separate file.
