Ok here is my situation.

I have sprite sheets with sprite movements and collisions, I want to load this sheet as into a program and then extract each frame into an Animation and save it as a gif. I would like the program to Identify the Sprite with the largest frame width and Height and then create the animation.

    You'll probably have better luck if you ask this question in one of the Game Dev. forums.

    I would like to do this using VB.Net. Is there any code avaliable for this. The code should look for the sprite frame with the largest Width and hight and set these values as the global width and height and then start to create the animation from the sprite sheet. Is their any sample code avaliable that demonstrates this.

    I'm sure you can do it using VB .Net, but these kind of issues, regardless of platform, are discussed in the Game Dev forums, probably AI and Physics.
