A spritesheet rendering plugin for Blender.

Blender addon GUI

What it does

Renders the scene from multiple directions and saves the results as separate files.

Multiple frames can be rendered. The animation frame range is read from the regular Start Frame and End Frame rendering properties.


Create an Empty and make the models to be rotated its children. This can be done by selecting all the objects, picking the parent Empty object last and pressing Ctrl+P.

Then set the correct settings from the Sprite Batch Rendering section of the Render-tab for controls. You can see the rendering status messages in the system console (Window > Toggle System Console). Click Render Batch to begin rendering.

You can cancel the rendering by pressing CTRL+C in the System Console window.

Example .blend file is an example how to set up the scene for sprite rendering.

The setup is the following:

  • Camera projection is set to orthographic mode
  • Scene render size is set to 128x128
  • Frame range has been set to 0-0
  • Sky color is set to transparent.

Path format
