In this quick tutorial, Carlos demonstrates several features of Corona: sprite sheets, alpha channels, and event listeners. Using the classic iFishies sample app, he shows how to use textures to create a better illusion of movement for your in-app animations.

Simple, but highly effective!

    Does anybody know how you can create duplicates of the same sprite instance? i.e in this example create multiple Clown fish from just the one initiation?

    I’ve been pulling my hair out for days trying to work this out, every time I try to duplicate a sprite it just moves the one sprite in the various places I’m trying to place it, but each time I just end up with one sprite onscreen.

    Is this even possible?

    Many thanks
