sprite-sheet-to-x3d utility

Posted on

A new utility “sprite-sheet-to-x3d” was added to the engine. Using it, you can convert spritesheet information into ready-to-use X3D file. Many thanks go to Trung Le (kagamma) for contributing this!

The utility takes a spritesheet with a description (what frames and animations are present in the spritesheet) and converts it into an X3D file. The X3D animations can be played with our simple PlayAnimation method (and friends).

The supported input formats are:

  • Starling (.xml). Fully supported.
  • Cocos2D (.plist). Covered most of important stuff, rare features are not supported (yet!).

See pull request #39 for more details!

The utility is in the engine sources, in tools/sprite-sheet-to-x3d/ . It can be compiled just like any other engine example, e.g. by executing the shell script tools/sprite-sheet-to-x3d/sprite-sheet-to-x3d_compile.sh . Enjoy!:)
