Kwik 2 and Texture Packer Sprite Sheets
How to create a Kwik 2 sprite sheet animation. You will combine and optimize the individual images of the animation, called sprites, into one file called a sprite sheet. This sprite sheet will be a smaller image file and will use less of your device's memory when loaded into your app.
Kwik Sprite Sheet Replacement Feature
We used Texture Packer for Kwik 2 to create a sprite sheet that we will use for our sprite sheet replacement layer. Now we are ready to add the sprite sheet to the layer on the page.
Kwik Movie Clip Replacement

Play Sound with Button in Kwik 2
We used the Rotation Widget in Kwik to animate four bats to swing from a branch of a tree. Each bat was on its own layer and was animated independently. This was a nice effect but it doesn't have much interactivity. It would be better if the reader could click on a bat and hear a bat sound.
