Sprite Effects

Definition - What does Sprite Effects mean?

Sprite effects are graphical images normally found on gaming multimedia that rotate in relation to the user's movement or camera rotation. A sprite contains a series of pictures that display themselves as one picture or animation.

Techopedia explains Sprite Effects

Sprite effects are actually flat and face the user even though their graphics give the effect of movement or change. Prior to 3-D graphics software, most computers contained hardware-based sprites. The abilities of sprite efffects were typically limited to how many hardware sprites could be generated.

Sprite effects can make objects look similar no matter the viewing angle, even though these effects are illusions. Shadows and lighting capabilities are prime examples of sprite effects within 3-D graphics.
