Sprite Manager Animation/Walker Brothers Mario

I am looking into Sprite Manager and I know SM2 supports sprite animation but I was wondering if it is possible to use simple images to create moving sprites for side scrollers with the original SM and how to go about this.

Also, if anyone has done the Walker Brothers Mario tut, does that use Script Manger for the 2D? (Here: http://www.walkerboystudio.com/html/unity_course_lab_4.html )

No they coded a function called aniSprite that animates texture’s UV to display animation. Its a good introduction to coding 2D games in Unity but SM2 and 2D Toolkit go a lot further.
