The Authoring Tools Framework (ATF) is a collection of C#/.NET components for building game development tools on Windows®. ATF has been used as the basis for sound modeling and audio bank tools, level editors, character animation blending tools, scripting language debuggers and timeline/sequence tools. For example, see this open source level editor built with ATF.

The LittleBigPlanet Level Editor shown here was developed by Cambridge Studio using ATF. For other applications like this, see the ATF Gallery and list of ATF adopters.
