Great little explanation of how sprites are used to save memory in a game or other graphic intensive application.

As an added plug it’s worth noting this movie was created by the best sprite sheet program around: TexturePacker. This little program is so good I used it exclusively for Joe Monkey Escapes. And to prove how good they are I’ve also used it to package all my CSS-based sprite sheets together for my latest website project. Simple awesome.




Watch the movie (warning: Flash)
