Pixelmash 2023.4 is here!
This release features the new Animate Transform layer effect! This handy effect lets you animate a layer's rotation, scale, and position simply by entering values. For example: if you'd like a wheel to rotate at 20 degrees per second, simply enter 20 in the rotation field. Many of these animations would be time consuming to do via keyframes and are very straightforward with the new tool. You can also set an independent duration and loop type (such as Boomerang for moving back and forth), and since it's a layer effect you can even apply multiple animations to the same layer if you like!

Pixelmash 2023.3 is here! This update adds the much-requested ability to import animations from sprite sheets. It's a very handy way to get animations into Pixelmash, edit existing game animations, and much more. To use it, just choose Import Sprite Sheet from the File menu, choose an image, and enter your import settings. It supports simple horizontal, vertical, or grid-aligned sprite sheets, and also includes more advanced settings such as padding and the ability to only import from a certain area of an image (for when a single sprite sheet contains more than one animation). Give it a shot, and let us know what you think!
