Polygon sprites trimming?

Hey guys!

There's a suggestion on polygon sprites trimming (though I'm not sure if it's doable and reasonable).
https://www.codeandweb.com/texturepacker/tutorials/cocos2d-x-performance-optimization
Currently TexturePacker has it only for cocos&unity.

I've asked if their team is planning to implement it to lua-based engines.
Their answer:


One thing I know for sure that with or without this fancy feature Gideros is awesome anyway :smile:

Thx!

    I'm not sure if it does it, but maybe something that check if the next sprite to be drawn is the same as the one about to be drawn then it adds the sprite to a mesh rather than having a new draw call. This could be repeated until there is a difference or if it runs out of space for the mesh.

    The polygon method also packs more sprites into the same texture space btw.

    Can it be implemented to Gideros? :*

    It has been in a couple of other engines, it may already be in Gideros though - I have no idea. It could also work if the sprites were on the same texture.
