Included Animations

VNgen includes a number of transition, transform, and deform animations out of the box which can be used in your own projects or as templates for custom animation scripts. These animations will scale to any size sprite without modification.

Animations and deformations can be applied to VNgen entities via vngen_*_anim_start and vngen_*_deform_start scripts, respectively, while transitions are applied with vngen_*_create and vngen_*_destroy scripts instead.
