Pyganim is a module that you can import into your Pygame games to handle sprite animation. Creating an animation is simply a matter of supplying a list of image filenames (or pygame.Surface objects) for each frame of animation, along with the duration that each frame lasts. Then call the play() method to start the animation and then call blit() each time you draw the window. The blit() function automatically draws the correct frame based on the amount of real time that has passed since the play() method was called. There are many, many other methods to provide finer levels of control as well.
