Here is a free software to convert GIF to sprite sheet. It is named as “Avi4Bmp“. Whenever you want to save all frames of your animated GIF file as a single PNG sprite sheet, this software will come in handy. Apart from converting animated GIF to sprite sheet as the PNG image, you can also save the output sprite sheet as BMP image.
One of its best features is you can also set the number of rows and columns for the output sprite sheet and then the software will process the input animated GIF image accordingly. In the screenshot below, you can see a sample sprite sheet PNG image which I created with the help of this software.
How To Convert Animated GIF To Sprite Sheet Using This Software?
This is a very simple GIF to sprite sheet maker or converter software. You can download the zip file of this software using the link present at the end of this review. Extract that file and execute its portable application. After running this software, its interface will be in front of you. The software has an old looking interface but it works very well. In fact, I tested it on Windows 10 PC and I didn’t face any trouble.
When the interface is opened, click on the Open button and add an animated GIF stored on your PC. You can also play the GIF after adding which is helpful to preview the GIF. Now, you can create the output sprite sheet. Before that, you can also set the number of rows and columns for the output but I will suggest you keep the default values because the output comes better with default values.
Press Save Image button and a window will open. Using that window, you can select the output folder, output format (PNG or BMP), and then save the sprite sheet.
This way you can convert other animated GIFs to sprite sheets.
If you need some animated GIF merger that can create a single animated GIF from multiple animated GIF images, then you may check this list.
