Release Notes

Wrote this program mainly because i wanted the option to see and test the animations i use in XNA, on different background colors, and at different sizes, and different animation speeds.

Its very helpful to me, I hope it is the same for you.

Animation nowadays is wide open in xna,, but i have found that using XML mapped and packed sprite sheets
were the most efficient way of dealing with animations, at least in my opinion, so to help facilitate the testing of the animation without having to load it up in xna, i created this application, it is in it's infancy at the moment, but still has some nice features.

Load and display XML Sprite packed Sheets in a nice image box, after loading you can view the animation by pressing play on the animation controls.

You may change the background the animation is displayed on while the animation is running, just right click on the animation and choose select background color, once done, you can reset the color the same way.

You may left click on the animation and that begins the zoom phase, and you may now use the mouse scroll button to view your animations at different scales.

In addition in the Animation control, we display a number, which is 150 by default, this is the milliseconds between each frame or the animation speed, you may change this to any whole value that you would like to test, keeping in mind that 100 = 100 milliseconds or 1 second and so on, you must stop the animation and play it again to see the changed animation speed.

More features to come soon.
