The ability to mass import files that are numbered is currently very convenient. Right now, when renaming multiple files on windows, the numbering convention is : “file(number).type”, ex: “dog(1).png”, “dog(2).png”, “dog(3).png”, etc. It would be really nice if this format was supported by default since its most likely going to be something a lot of people could run into. I’m also not sure if there is an already existing user script that can do this, I haven’t been able to find one myself.
I had an issue similar to this where aseprite could not guess related files, so what I did was I just dragged them all in as individual files, then wrote a script
jest merge all tabs Aseprite Scripts Collection - #40 by jest to merge them together into 1 file.
Really the solution is aseprite just shouldn’t guess at all, by dragging in a bunch of files, you the user are already acknowledging they’re related in some way so it should just prompt and ask you how they’re related or if they’re not: Always prompt user to import as animation or as layers like other paint applications · Issue #2648 · aseprite/aseprite · GitHub . I was looking into implementing this but I think it would break a lot of the scripting API among other things.
Ah well that’s a pretty massive shame :(…
On top of that I guess the script you linked doesn’t seem to work for me, I follow the exact steps given but instead of merging all tabs, a prompt opens saying “select animation data file(json)” with a button to open the file browser(also for some reason the file browser’s name is “animimation tag importer” lol(line 420)).
Am I missing something obvious?
Ohhh WTF, I must have copy and pasted a script I was working on accidentally into it. I think it should work now, sorry.
No worries, thanks for the help
