UVs and Animation

The previous chapter explained how to develop a GUI editor add-in that allows users to add selected textures in the project panel to a larger atlas texture. Atlas Textures help us improve the performance of our 2D games. In generating the atlas, we also saved meta-data. This included all filenames of textures inside the atlas, and their UV positions within the atlas. In closing that chapter, we tested the add-on functionality by assigning an Atlas Texture to a procedural Quad Mesh in the scene, to see how it looked in the Viewport. The problem we faced was that the quad mesh rendered the complete atlas texture, rather than just a region of it (see Figure 7-1). The problem was not with the Atlas Texture, but with ...
