ok so im making a 2d gaame kinds of sprites are supported
Sprites are covered here in the manual: https://developer.playcanvas.com/en/user-manual/2D/ and there is a Spine library that you can use here: https://github.com/playcanvas/playcanvas-spine
TL;DR: Flipbook style and Spine animations are supported.
i still ont get it at all about the sprites
Flipbook is when you have a sprite that has multiple frames of animation (eg: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-m_2_VixbGQw/VabRNX6YdGI/AAAAAAAACNo/Lqu5gR2GXQ8/s400/bp39_fighter.png)
The name comes from the style of animation where you had to draw every frame and you ‘flip the book’ to show the animation: https://youtu.be/Njl-uqnmBGA?t=232
Spine is a known tool to create puppet style animation using bones. You can find more about it here: http://esotericsoftware.com/
