Hey! It would be so cool if one could create a sort of links/buttons in an Aseprite file by selecting an area and specifying a frame to jump to when afterwards pressing that area, maybe with the hand tool selected. Then the visibility of the link area could be toggled with a GUI button and/or keyboard shortcut (it could be a user-specified colour or negative to what’s underneath). And a way to backtrack, seeing all frames linking to the active frame would also be neat.
This simple functionality could be useful for many purposes:
- Sketching interactive game mechanics, especially when designing a point n’ click game, maybe even making a simple little game only with Aseprite, if exporting as flash and/or html5 was also added (bonus suggestion)
- Helping yourself or team members navigate in a large project by going from one frame/animation to another (with user designed buttons, possibly in their own layer that can be hidden when exporting)
- Sketching interactive application and website designs, maybe with an option to play a few frames (or a lot), like a single tag or so before pausing at the target frame (really like that idea when thinking about it!)
