Sprite animation interactive, may be non rectangular (Computer games)
In its simplest form it is a 2-D graphic object which moves across the display. Sprites frequently can have transparent areas. Sprites are not limited to rectangular shapes. Sprite animation lends itself fine to be interactive. The position of all sprites is controlled through the user or through an application program or by both. This is termed as "external" animation.
We consider this to animated objects as sprites or movies as "animobs". In games and in a lot of multimedia applications, the animations must adapt themselves to the environment, the program status or the user activity. It is animation that must be interactive. To create the animations more events driven, one can embed a script, a minute performable program, in every animob. All time an animob touches the other animob or while an animob finds clicked, the script is activated. The script after that decides how to react to the event whether at all. The script file itself is written via the animator or via a programmer.
