The Unity just got an importer for the popular Aseprite pixel editor’s file format, ase. Aseprite is a long running and very popular sprite editing package (we first covered all the way in 2017). It is available for a relatively low price of $20, although it’s possible to get it for free if you are willing to build it yourself from source code.
Features of the Unity Aseprite Importer include:
- .ase & .aseprite
- Color modes (All modes are supported)
- Visible/Hidden layer
- Hidden layers are by default not imported. This can be changed by checking “Include hidden layers” in the import settings.
- Linked Cells
- Note: Only Animation Direction: Forward is supported.
