Difference between anchor and pivot


Recommended Posts

What is the difference between pivot and anchor?


Anchor is set to percentages of width, and pivot is set to exact pixel values, but is that the only difference?


If i have a sprite that it 100x100 and i do either of the following code


sprite.anchor.set(0.5, 0.5);






it appears to do exactly the same thing? 

Including when i rotate the sprite, which appears to be the difference in the description.


and also, setting both of these seems to have weird results not sure which is being favoured.

Pivot is currently "broken":




You're right, at the moment it just works like `anchor`, except with weird effects if the sprite is a different width and height than its texture.

Hopefully it will be "fixed" because it would be extremely useful to be able to rotate a sprite while still maintaining its x/y anchor at the top left corner.
