- @SebaschenLiu - thanks for the awesome padding feature and UI enhancements <3
Download the raw version of the script
Place Spritesheet generator.jsx script into:
- Windows - C:\Program Files\Adobe\Your photoshop version\Presets\Scripts
- Mac - Applications > Your photoshop version > Presets > Scripts
Restart Photoshop if it was open.
The script will now be available under File -> Scripts menu as "Spritesheet Generator".
You can specify the frame range. The columns and rows will be automaticaly calculated - you can change them to suit your needs.
You also have the option to add padding in between frames to avoid bleeding.
- Save as PNG - generates and then saves a PNG24 of the generated sprite sheet along with a _spritesheets.txt file in the same folder
- Generate document - generate your spritesheet into a new photoshop document with "Document Name" field and cell size as the name i.e. basic_attack_32x32
Sprite sheet data file
_spritesheets.txt will be created / updated everytime you use Save as PNG option and will store sprite sheet information for all generated pngs in the folder it resides. Extra options:
- Check "Separate Padding Data" to extract more detailed spritesheet information with padding information on each side (by default) The generated _spritesheets.txt format is:
Without Separate Padding Data (default): spritename,cell width + padding left + padding right,cell height + padding top + padding bottom,number of frames for example, basic_attack.png,68,68,4 basic_attack_1.png,36,36,4 DustAnimationExample.png,22,10,4 With Separate Padding Data: spritename,cell width,cell height,padding left,padding top,padding right, padding bottom,number of frames for example, basic_attack.png,64,64,2,2,2,2,4 basic_attack_1.png,32,32,2,2,2,2,4 DustAnimationExample.png,18,6,2,2,2,2,4 each entry uses a new line
This file exists so that you can setup whatever workflow within your game engine or other tools to read and slice your spritesheets.
