Inherits: Node2D < CanvasItem < Node < Object

Sprite node that can use multiple textures for animation.


Animations are created using a SpriteFrames resource, which can be configured in the editor via the SpriteFrames panel.


StringName animation @"default"
bool centered true
bool flip_h false
bool flip_v false
int frame 0
SpriteFrames frames  
Vector2 offset Vector2( 0, 0 )
bool playing false
float shininess 1.0
Color specular_color Color( 1, 1, 1, 1 )
float speed_scale 1.0


bool is_playing ( ) const
void play ( StringName anim=@”“, bool backwards=false )
void stop ( )


  • animation_finished ( )

Emitted when the animation is finished (when it plays the last frame). If the animation is looping, this signal is emitted every time the last frame is drawn.

  • frame_changed ( )

Emitted when frame changed.

Property Descriptions

Setter set_animation(value)
Getter get_animation()

The current animation from the frames resource. If this value changes, the frame counter is reset.

Default true
Setter set_centered(value)
Getter is_centered()

If true, texture will be centered.

Default false
Setter set_flip_h(value)
Getter is_flipped_h()

If true, texture is flipped horizontally.

Default false
Setter set_flip_v(value)
Getter is_flipped_v()

If true, texture is flipped vertically.

Default 0
Setter set_frame(value)
Getter get_frame()

The displayed animation frame’s index.

Setter set_sprite_frames(value)
Getter get_sprite_frames()

The SpriteFrames resource containing the animation(s).

Default Vector2( 0, 0 )
Setter set_offset(value)
Getter get_offset()

The texture’s drawing offset.

Default false

If true, the animation is currently playing.

Default 1.0
Setter set_shininess(value)
Getter get_shininess()

Strength of the specular light effect of this AnimatedSprite.

Default Color( 1, 1, 1, 1 )
Setter set_specular_color(value)
Getter get_specular_color()

The color of the specular light effect.

Default 1.0
Setter set_speed_scale(value)
Getter get_speed_scale()

The animation speed is multiplied by this value.

Method Descriptions

  • bool is_playing ( ) const

Returns true if an animation is currently being played.

Plays the animation named anim. If no anim is provided, the current animation is played. If backwards is true, the animation will be played in reverse.

  • void stop ( )

Stops the current animation (does not reset the frame counter).
