Spriter is a popular sprite character creating tool for 2D game animation, which comes with powerful functions, friendly UI and simple operation. By means of the modular animation technology (to complete the integration of animation modules through assembly), it enables everybody (whether he or she has the experience of making animation or not) to be able to quickly and easily create exquisite, professional and well-worked sprite characters for 2D game animation.

You should know that: Spriter is not used for creating or rendering the animation itself, but for editing, combining the read-made frame of images to make them dynamic (to be arranged via the timeline), so as to generate the required animation. Due to the use of Modular Animation technology for creating/editing 2D animation, with Spriter, you don’t need to draw each frame of the images of the animation manually as using the traditional animation producing software. Instead, it uses the flexible and gradient sprite blocks on a timeline to help creators conveniently and effectively complete the animation production.
