In part 3 of our tutorial we are going to focus on creating a player that has an animation. Specifically, the player has an “Idle” animation for when it is standing still. We are going to create the player sprite as well as crop empty space and set its origin point. These things will become useful later on. Our tutorial begins where Part 2 left off.
