What is an ASE file?

An ASE file contains a sprite created by Aseprite, an animated sprite editor and pixel art tool. It stores a 2D animation or graphic, which includes layers, frames, palettes, tags, and settings. ASE files may also be saved as .ASEPRITE files.

ASE and ASEPRITE files are saved in the same format and are the most common files associated with Aseprite. The files are created to store the sprite graphic or animation and can be closed and re-opened for further editing in Aseprite.

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

Aseprite can also be used to export ASE files to more popular formats, such as .PNG or .GIF files. To do this, open the ASE file and select File → Save Copy As.
