    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 would be willing to look into either.

    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. :)
