What level do the sprites students create get saved for them to use in future lessons?
As far as I know, if you create a sprite, you can only use it in a different project if you remix it and use the remix to build a new project.
Unfortunately, there isn’t an easy way to save a sprite itself for future use.
If I know what you’re talking about (because I was tired reading this) you can actually download sprites. Just follow my instructions.
Step I: Press the export button in the animation maker.
Step II: Press download
Step III: It is now downloaded, you can now use the sprite downloaded for any other project (if you import it).
Yes, but I’m not sure they can be re-uploaded if they are multiple frames. I haven’t tried that yet, but I guess it’s worth a shot.
It’s a gif file, so you can probably upload all the frames.
Many of my students have tried this (downloading from one project and importing into another) but, alas, you can not upload a gif file (the downloaded file format) into the animation tab .
My students will typically either do as @mwood suggested and remix OR copy and paste actually works pretty well between projects. You use the rectangle select tool to highlight the pixels from one sprite and copy and then use the same tool (select the blank canvas in the new project) and then paste. It is a little work intensive if there are many frames but if they spent some time on the sprite - they’ll do the work:)
