If this is for a single character (for example, your main character, a single enemy, or a single non-player character), it would be a good idea to keep the animations in one sprite sheet. That way, you don’t need to load extra sheets for various movement sets, and it will be easier for you to control which animations you want.

thank you very much for answer my question.

This approach should also reduce the number of drawing calls needed to render your character, improving performance.
