Converting the animation back to Spritesheet

If you stored a safe copy you can easily click the meny below the stored thumbnail and restore it. But if you didn't here's one way you can too: using one of the utilities from the DoggyFX plugins.




Find your version of DoggyFX in the "Misc." tab of the plugins panel.

Double-click it to launch DoggyFX





Select the Utilities group, and double-click the tool called

Anim to Spritesheet









If the image is already in Spriteform, there's not much this tool can do. Rows and Columns will remain at zero:

Plus, you can use Undo to return to the animated format if it was converted to spritesheet with the "Save Undo" option checked.


Finally, here's an example with the 30-frame walk sequence
