What is an .ASEPRITE file?

.ASEPRITE is Aseprite Sprite File

An ASEPRITE file contains a sprite created by Aseprite, an animated sprite editor and pixel art tool. It stores a graphic or animation, which includes layers, frames, palettes, and tags. ASEPRITE files also contain sprite settings, such as the width, height, color mode, pixel aspect ration, and background.

You can create an ASEPRITE file in Aseprite by selecting File → New..., then File → Save or Save As..., and choosing the ASEPRITE format. You can open an ASEPRITE file in Aseprite by selecting File → Open... or Open Recent and choosing the ASEPRITE file.

Aseprite can also be used to export ASEPRITE files to more popular formats, such as .PNG or .GIF files. With the ASEPRITE file open, select File → Save Copy As.
