I have to images (64x64) and I want to make an animation between them.
I want to flip from one to the other.

How do I do that?
Anyone know an online site that can do that or some smart tool (for Mac if possible)?

That's just paste sprite, and sync. Not much to it really, all games do it in some way.

What I'm looking for is a small program (Mac preferred) where I can load two images and then the program makes an animation for me, flipping from one image to the other.

Like turning a tile.

Well write the program, it's only about 4 lines of code.

If it so easy and only 4 lines would you please show me those 4 lines of code?

You could make 2 plane objects, place them against each other, and texture each one with the images you're talking about, and then rotate them.

Or, the other way is to make a sprite based off the first image, and then decrease the xSize of the sprite over time until it gets to 1; then, base the sprite off the 2nd image and increase the xSize over time until it's the normal size again, to achieve a "flipping" effect.

Didn't you ask this in the App Game Kit area? Pincho Paxton is right. Writing code for that doesn't take much. The following isn't 4 lines because it creates images, uses a timer, and has remarks so you know what's going on.



Or just use one of the animation programs that use the Mac and just do it that way rather than writing any lines of code.

...You are talking about morphing two images together in an animation right?

Which doesn't sound like 4 lines.

I mean you se a tile and when you click on it it flips over and you se another image on the other side of the tile.
