.SPRITE3 File Extension

There is only one file type that uses the .SPRITE3 extension:

Scratch 3.0 Sprite File

Scratch 3.0 Sprite File

A SPRITE3 file contains graphics and animation information used by Scratch 3.0, an educational program used to develop creative programming skills. It is a Zip-compressed archive that stores a .JSON file, which includes information about the image as well as animation settings for the image.

Sprites are used by Scratch to perform actions within a project. Sprites can be created by users, but they are also available in the sprites library, as well.

To create a SPRITE3 file with Scratch 3.0, right-click the sprite thumbnail in the sprites panel, select save to local file, name the file, and choose the save location on your computer.

To open a SPRITE3 file with Scratch 3.0, click Import underneath the stage and select the SPRITE3 file on your computer.

NOTE: The release of Scratch 3.0 introduced the SPRITE3 file, which replaced the .SPRITE2 file used by Scratch 2.0.
