Technically I didn't make this, a friend of mine did, although I brought it up and asked him to make it for me. But either way I figured I'd share it with you guys.

This is a fantastic program for making sprite sheets, and if anyone uses the active picture object with sprite sheets, you'll love this one.

This is also great if you use 3D renders for sprites or if you use the animation features in Adobe Flash, Photoshop or After Effects, and you have tons of frames to deal with.

I personally only use this for when I do art for XNA, with MMF2 I use a different technique that I might share in the future. Construct users would be able to make good use of this as well.

Basically, with this program you can load in an entire folder of all your animation frames (they do not have to be the same size or named the same with number order, but it usually helps to get a better result) then you can specify each animation, the start frame, the end frame, the amount of columns, press the button and whammo, it will automatically save each animation into it's very own sprite sheet. You can even save the lists to apply it to other characters or whatever you may want.

If anyone has used a sprite sheeter before and have had headaches, this should cure some. It's a pain in the ass trying to load in the specific frames for each animation for 18+ animations, and even worse if you've got 10+ characters with the same animation!

If anyone decides that they need to use this, feel free and let me know what you think. If you've got any suggestions on any improvements, let me know and I'll forward them to the correct person!
