If you use Paint .NET for creating sprite animations, then this plugin is for you. It allows you to view any sequence of frames as an animation within an image without having to leave Paint .NET. You can also save all frames of an animation as a single multi-frame strip, individual PNG files, or as an animated GIF(experimental). Help is also integrated into the plugin. Just hover over the parameter in question and a pop-up will appear.

Notes:

  • Requires the latest version of Paint .NET installed.
  • Installation instructions can be found in INSTALL.txt located in the zip file.

Whenever I use the plugin to animate a sprite the Animation Helper window opens very small. When I resize the window to be bigger, all the text/buttons in the window remain smooshed in a tiny section of the window and are basically unusable. Any ideas on how I can fix this. I'm running the newest version of windows 10. Any help would be great! Thanks

Are you using the latest version of Paint .NET?  It was recently updated to improve high dpi scaling support. Do you have the display scaling set to more than 100%? I just tested it with a display scaling of 200% and it looked fine but I'm running the latest version of Windows 10.

I just uploaded a newer version of the plugin. you might download it and see if it helps with your issue. Also make sure you are using the latest version of Paint .NET.

Thank you I'll go ahead and try that!

Just downloaded it, and I have the same problem. I have a 4K screen, and the DPI are 250%

Amazing tool! You got a shoutout from ConcernedApe (stardew valley dev) who used your tool in his game, which is how I found it. So simple but so useful.

Thanks for the positive feedback.  I knew he used Paint .NET for Stardew Valley but didn't know about my plugin. Very cool!

I have an image that is 600 pixels wide. I want to make 300 frames which are 300 pixels wide - incrementing one pixel each time. Is this possible with this plugin?

This tool is a MUST have for anyone working with sprites in Paint.Net. Preview can be fine tuned for your specific spritesheet layout, including borders and offsets. Superb!
