Spriter Plug-in for construct 3

Recommended Posts

Make sure you have the latest version of the Construct 3 plug-in from here: https://www.construct.net/en/make-games/addons/192/spriter

Here is a video for installing the plug-in of you don't know how. 

You can then watch the video below to see how to export your project from Spriter and then import it into Construct 3.


You can repeat this process whenever you need to update your Spriter project in your game. Meaning, if you change or add animations, images, sounds etc. in your Spriter project, just repeat the import process while keeping the name of the Spriter files the same and it will update in C3.

Now that you know how to import your project to C3, you can watch these videos to learn how to control it with events.

Hey there,

I was wondering with the construct 3 plugin if it was possible to use the skinning option within spriter? Also if there was a option to actually see the final spriter object in the layout like in construct 2?

All the best,

H.

No, Spriter's skin mode was experimental/proof of concept and is not supported on any run-time. Spriter 2 will feature advanced mesh deforming and a Construct 3 plugin is planned.
Unfortunately there's no way to actually see the full object in construct 3 once imported. You could export a single frame of the default animation of your Spriter character as a PNG and then create a construct sprite with that image to use as a placeholder in any layout that will need that Spriter object, then at start of layout, have that place holder sprite spawn the Spriter object and then destroy itself.

Hey, your website says, the c3 Plugin has not yet been ported to the c3 runtime. Now Scirra announced that the c2 runtime will be suspended this year. I know you guys are working hard on Spriter 2 but will the c3 plugin still work after the c2 runtime is suspended?

Sorry about the confusion.  We forgot to update that.  It has worked with the c3 runtime for quite some time now.

Here's a link.

For some reason I can't import a spriter zip into an existing C3 project. Whatever I try it only imports an empty spriter object. However, when starting a new C3 project and dragging in the same spriter zip it imports correctly.

Any idea why it is not working in an existing project? This is driving me insane.

 

Update: Found the issue. The layout you are importing to needs to have an eventsheet connected to it or it will not work. So my issue was that I created a new "Spriter" layout only and no event sheet.

The documentation link on this page leads to a page that doesn't exist. Is there a new place where I can find details on how to use this plugin? Specifically I'm trying to figure out how to use animation blending.

Sorry for late response, I can only post once a day. This is what the documentation leads to on my screen:image.png.bcb0431d95fb18a1a6a34bcc93c4223c.png

Also your post looks like this to me:

EDIT: I've just noticed that the same issue popped up in the Construct 2 topic. Is there a similar DropBox link for the Construct 3 documentation? Is the C2 documentation close enough that I can just use that instead?

I've expanded daily post allowance to 4.

I don't see any dropbox link in the thread that you can't reach. Have you tried a different browser? I can see no reason in our system why it would be restricting your access, and no-one else has reported this issue.

Importing into Construct 3 is very different:

Sorry, I was referring to this post at the very end of the thread, you provided a DropBox link to download what I assume is the documentation page he couldn't reach:

I have tried Chromium Edge, Chrome, Firefox, Chrome in incognito, and also Safari on my iPad. None of them make a difference. Clearing browsing data on Chrome also doesn't work. Could it be the fact that I'm a new user?

Yes, regardless of browser.

@Makoren

We finally figured out the issue. That link from Scirra/Construct forums is linking to an obsolete and hidden post. I could see the post becasue I'm an admin, so I didn't notice it was hidden when I followed the link. It should be linking to here instead:

Hi,

I recently made a bug report about an alpha issue with the Spriter .c3addon (c3runtime). We currently cannot show transparent animations with Spriter in Construct 3.
I have made a very minimal project that shows the issue, here.

Alternative link to the bug report:
(https://www.construct.net/en/forum/construct-3/general-discussion-7/spriter-c3-addon-10-12-2019-130240/page-22)

It's a very simple project, a simple white rectangular image with a fading animation, to show the issue. Hopefully it will make it easier to debug.

Thank you.

Best regards!

Hi,

Is there any news to this?
Is there a way we could get priority support for this?

Thank you.

Sorry about the delayed reply. Edgar has it on the top of his to do list and will work on the issue as soon as he can. We'll report back here when there's a new build to try which will hopefully resolve the issue for you. Thanks for your patience.
