Wrote a quick little add-on for the Ancient Beast folks that takes a rendered animation and creates a sprite sheet and/or an animated GIF based on the rendered frames.
A couple caveats:
- The add-on assumes you’ve rendered a sequence of still images. It will not work if you’re rendering straight to a video file
- The add-on also assumes that only the frames of your animation are in your render path. If other files are there, chances are good that you’ll get a pretty jacked-up sprite sheet
- The add-on assumes that you have ImageMagick installed… specifically the montage tool. If you do not have ImageMagick installed, the script will likely vomit on you.
By default, if you enable this add-on, a sprite sheet and/or an animated GIF will be created automatically once your animation render job completes. Of course, there’s a Spritify panel in Render Properties where you can enable/disable this automatic feature and adjust a few other configuration options for your sprite sheet.
