Importing animations to a single tiled image

Hello, boards.

I've been working on a single tiled image (270x350), and I am trying to import an animation that is seven tiles (16x16) long. I've banged my head against it for a while, and I can't find a way to do it. Originally, I had tried to simply animate on the larger single tiled document, but I could not find a way to do this.

    Hi jastujenski, It's not possible to import an animation (gif) to a single tile within PyxelEdit, you have to import it so it takes the tile space required, eg. if the animation is 5 frames, you would reserve 5 tiles for it.

    I thought of this solution earlier today. What I'm going to attempt to do today is create a new tileset that's 270x350 pixels, and then, insert my original piece of art and subsequent animations on each tile. This should work, right?

    Yes that sounds like the correct way to do it ;)

    Basically if your entire canvas is 270x350, then inserting a 5 frames animation, would require the canvas to be 1350x350 ( 5 * 270 wide )
  • This is exactly what worked! Thanks! I'll post in the artwork section, once it's complete.
