In this video, I will walk you through the concept of Sprites in Unity3D. We will learn about various types of Sprites and Sprite Animations as well.


Sprites are just 2d graphical objects. They are essentially basic textures but they use special techniques to increase the efficiency and the convenience of use. There are two ways of using Sprites.
  • By Using Single Image Sprites
  • By Using Sprite Sheets

Sprite Sheet

A Sprite sheet is a texture containing small images with a transparent background.

Sprite Animation

The concept of Sprite Animation comes from the classic paper flip animation concept. In Sprite Animation, two or more images get rendered sequentially in a continuous manner which, in turn, gives an animated single object.
Without further ado, let's watch the video.
