[Orbit: Unity Mentorship] Sprites! (June 1st, 7:00pm)

First time attending this event?  Please sign-up in our short form over here: goo.gl/JwpJzx

Ever wanted to make a 3D game cheaply on a low-to-medium end computer? Or a 2D game that utilizes the tools more commonly used in 3D engines, such as rigging? Unity may be just the game engine for you! Our TVGS Unity Orbit mentorship group can help provide you answers and resources to any questions you may have on this popular and free software.

This session, a mentor will have a short lecture on how to use 2D sprites in Unity. Taro Omiya will describe how to cut out sprites from a spritesheet, how to turn them into an animation, and even compress multiple 2D images back into one!

The Unity Orbit group will meet on the 1st and 4th Thursday of the month at Tech Valley Game Space and will provide opportunities for participants to share information, discuss projects, ask questions and obtain guidance from experienced mentors.
