Does anyone have suggestions for software to use to make battle animations?

I saw the pixi editor, but that exports a .json, which means running a separate plugin to import those files. I'm more looking for a editor that can play around with particles and images but exports as a sprite sheet.

Also doesn't matter the RPG maker version, this should apply to any.

I'm not sure this is the perfect place, but since you're looking for programs to make animations...

I've moved this thread to Resource Support. Please be sure to post your threads in the correct forum next time. Thank you.

I can recommend TimelineFX, kinda. Crashes, but is a pretty decent program.

Oh, that's a tough one. I use Aseprite for animations, but it's pixel art only. I know Blender has some surprisingly decent tools that people use to replace After Effects, but it always seemed odd to me to use a 3D modeling program to do other things. Still, it might work as a free option.

Pixel art animations still is acceptable. But I hadn't thought about blender. Thank you for the input.

Pixel FX Designer is pretty darn good. It's pretty complex and allows for some really cool animations. It might be a little hard to get to that point but even at the beginner level you can get some interesting spinning, emitting effect. It also converts particles into pixels very easily.

@Randy Thank you so much, I honestly didn't know about that software, and since I'm working on pixel art training in Aesprite, this is PERFECT. Already went and purchased it and excited to get working in it. :)

I can't believe it... my mom is going to sign me up for the Planet Fitness down the street! I need to lower my cholesterol according to my doctor, and I'll need to lose some weight to fit into Helen Henny's skirt (I ordered a skirt for my mascot outfit and realized it was a bit too small). My doctor says I need to lose weight anyway.
I blame my lilest bro for the duck suit. Sketched it and realized it had to be added to a mock fashion magazine cover. The titles are actually inside jokes about the place this NPC is from.

After a few hectic months, my hiatus is over, and I'm now back. Good to see so many familiar names posting. And a forum update while I was away.
V1.3 of Demo, a new concept artist on the team, character voices are coming into light more... I'm happy to say that the fangame is making good progress.
