Aseprite Importer for Unity

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:

File formats

  • .ase & .aseprite
  • Color modes (All modes are supported)
    • RGBA
    • Grayscale
    • Indexed

Layer settings

  • 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
  • Tags
    • Note: Only Animation Direction: Forward is supported.
