Hello, I plan to upload the first NSpixAnim Alpha version here in a few days.
The software is about connecting pixels with bones to create animations. In the current state, creating animations, connecting pixels to bones and exporting to animated gifs is possible. Until the release, it should also be possible to export sprites and individual frames.
Since it is not yet possible to import images dynamically in a certain size, I would like to know which size is preferred. Current maximum pixel size is 128px (import 256x128 .. result is 128x64)

Thank you


Hallo, ich habe vor, in ein paar tagen die erste NSpixAnim Alpha version hier hochzuladen.
Bei der Software, geht es darum Pixel mit Knochen zu verbinden, um so animationen zu erstellen. Im aktuellen zustand sind animationen erstellen, die verbindung von Pixeln zu Knochen und das exportieren zum Animierten-Gif möglich. Bis zum Release soll es auch möglich sein, Sprites und einzelne frames zu exportieren.
Da es noch nicht möglich ist, Bilder dynamisch in einer bestimmten größe zu Importieren, würde ich gerne wissen, welche größe bevorzugt wird. Aktuelle maximale pixelgröße ist 128px (Import 256x128 ..Resultat is 128x64)

I'd suggest to include a bit more general infos like what can be imported, the image you used looks like it has a background, so is it possible to crop the sprite, is it possible to make long animations, or are you limited to a specific number of frames?
Je mehr Info's desto besser ;)

@recreation So currently a maximum of 100 frames are provided and at least 2 frames must be used.
JPGs of all sizes are currently being imported (PNG and BMP are coming). When importing, the size is adjusted automatically (max. 128px). The pixels that have no weights (background) play no role in the animation. They can be shown or hidden (Reference). If it should be, I'll make it so that you can export the background with.
