Can You Overlap Animations?

Hi guys. Is there a way I can play two animations overlapped?

I make pixel dolls and I’m trying to get a heart to float while the dolls are blinking but I can only seem to do one animation then the other will start afterwards. It’s been bugging me for days and I’m starting to think it isn’t possible in Aseprite :frowning:

What would be cool is to be able to animate each layer separately, rather than frames combining all layers, but I can’t seem to figure out how, if it’s even possible.

Aseprite is frame-based rather than timeline-based, so no, you can’t really do this except by repeating the relevant cels yourself (e.g. heart up eyes open, heart down eyes open, heart up eyes closed, heart down eyes closed). There might be scripts out there to automate the process.

Okay, that makes sense. Thanks for the reply! ^-^
