Particle Sprite sheet for 3d game

Hi all!

I am trying to make a explosion for a game so I thought why not make an explosion in blender and bake it out and turn it into a sprite sheet. Then I thought this would be great for a 2d game but not for a 3d game which allows the camera to rotate around the particle.

I assume I would have to break up the sprite sheet into different sections in order to work?

Any advice or tutorials links will be much appreciated! :smiley:
