@implementation CCAnimation (Helper)
// Creates an animation from single files
+(CCAnimation*) animationWithFile:(NSString*)name
// Load the animation frames as textures and create the sprite frames
NSMutableArray* frames = [NSMutableArray arrayWithCapacity:frameCount];

// Assuming all animation files are named "nameX.png"

// Assuming that image file animations always use the whole image

CGRect texRect = CGRectMake(0, 0, texSize.width, texSize.height);

Here's how the naming convention comes into play. The Ship 's animations have the
base name ship-anim followed by a consecutive number starting with 0 and ending
in the . png file extension. For example, the filenames for the Ship 's animation are
named ship-anim0.png through ship-anim4.png . If you create all your anim-
ations using that naming scheme, you can use the preceding CCAnimation extension
method for all your animations.
Tip I can't help but notice that a lot of developers and artists have a habit of
consecutively naming files with a fixed number of digits, by adding leading zer-
