Spriter R11 Release


Hello everyone.  Here's a new Spriter release with a couple of minor additions and several important bug fixes.  Enjoy!

Download here

Spriter Release 11  

Released 4/20/2017  

Additions and Enhancements  

  • Added pro feature to allow you to set background guide images per animation. It's impossible to accidentally move or edit the background images unless you enter the guide image editing mode. Guide image information is saved in a way that will be ignored by external implemenations and Spriter's own spritesheet generation.  
  • Hovering over metadata keys (variables and tags) now reveals their data  


  • Spriter will now prevent you from attempting to export to png/gif with an invalid custom rect source or target size (previously exited the dialog without exporting)  
  • Added option to right-click to rename in the z-order and hierarchy panes  

Bug Fixes  

  • Fixed a bug where moving animations from one entity to another would result in missing objects if the target entity already contained those objects  
  • Fixed a crash that would occur upon closing the edit variable dialog if a key was double clicked to open it and then that key was removed in the dialog  
  • Fixed a bug where variable keys couldn't be created in new animations created after the new variable was added  
  • Fixed a bug where if a project was loaded with an entity that contained a variable, keys for that variable couldn't be created in animations that didn't already have at least one key  
  • Fixed a bug that allowed you to drag an animation containing a sub-entity into the entity it was using as a sub-entity. This would corrupt the animation, as entities cannot be sub-entities of themselves  
  • Fixed a bug that would cause objects to incorrectly update angles on multiple keys after being drag/dropped under certain circumstances  
  • Fixed a bug where copy and pasting pivot points wouldn't work in certain situations
  • Fixed several bugs and a crash when moving animations from one entity to another under certain conditions  
  • Spriter now attempts to automatically repair broken file associations that would cause default pivot points to reset to the top-left corner

Spriter Release 10 Released 


Additions and Enhancements

  • Improved z-order handling when copy-pasting. Will attempt to find paste at the same z-order relative to the copied object(s), and fall back on the absolute z-order index if necessary 
  • Added right-click options to copy relative and absolute z-order to all frames for a selected object. 
  • Added notification on task bar when an export is complete on Mac and Windows 
  • Added a button to open the current project folder (on the right side of the main icon bar) 
  • Added 'paste difference to all frames'. Ctrl-U will take a snapshot of a single selected object. After taking a snapshot, make any desired changes, and then Ctrl-I will paste the difference to all frames. For example if you take a snapshot of a sprite, and then rotate it 10 degrees, and move it 5 pixels to the left. The difference paste will apply the 10 degree rotation and 5 pixel movement to the current sprite angle and position on all other frames 
  • Added Move or Die game mod export. Watch the forums/announcements for further details in the near future. 

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where right-click copy to all frames wasn't working 
  • Fixed a bug where sometimes the edit pivot point dialog wouldn't appear when double clicking an image in the file palette 
  • Fixed a bug where altering the pivot point of a non-character mapped image would incorrectly real time preview the pivot point change in the canvas 
  • Fixed a bug where padding changes could lag one change behind on the sprite sheet generation dialogue 
  • Fixed a bug where animation intervals were not loading 
  • Fixed a bug where saving a resized project as scon would save the old file sizes 
  • Fixed a bug where scon saves would always contain a  <gline> tag, even if it there were no guidelines to save
  • Fixed a bug where changes made after undoing a copy z-order to all frames action would cause it to appear as if all animation keyframes were deleted
