Mine-imator is an easy-to-use animation studio for all your Minecraft movie making needs!

Import mobs, items, blocks and schematic files and animate them using keyframes! When you are done with your animation, you can export it as an .avi file for you to upload to sites like Youtube.

Mine-imator is not yet finished, but an early Beta version is available for free.
By downloading, trying it out and giving opinions, suggestions and complaints,
you are helping the evolution of this program!


The program is quite popular, with well over 600,000 downloads since late August 2012 and thousands of creations uploaded to Youtube.

All common questions are answered there.

I hope you add bendable body parts soon. Also, please in future versions please keep it simple, that should attract large crowds that will be downloading. Keeping it simple will also reduce lag whilst using the program.
I love the program, keep it up!

How do I make the camera switch to another point INSTANTLY? Whenever I make the camera switch a point it usually rotates or moves there. I need to make it so that it is like it switches from 1 camera to another. Please help.

Good lord. First the Minecraft Note Block Studio, now this. Please don't knock yourself out.

EDIT: Tried it, seems great. A little documentation would be nice, since I've never animated anything before.

Change the transition to "Instant".

When I start the program, it says:
___________________________________________
ERROR in
action number 1
of Other Event: Game Start
for object obj_control:

Error defining an external function.

And then the same again, and again, and again... When I later try to export my animation as AVI, it says "Choose the codec to use. These will differ depending on what's installed on your computer. You are strongly advertised not to pick any options marked "Uncompressed"." Then, instead if letting me choose a codec, it says "The program will now start running through your animation and save it, DO NOT exit or minimize Mine-imator during this process! You can see the progress at the top of the window.". So I can't export animations to AVI. :(

try waiting till the rendering/animation screen thingy is done. at the end it'll be made a AVI.
the reason that it wont let u make a codec is cuz u probably only have 1 codec thingy?
im not sure but i hope this helps

i dunno how to solve the black screen problem but the 1 second videos are probably because you dont spread the keyframes out. i know because when i first made my test animation i saw that it was faster than it was when i tested it in mineimator.
when you press space or somethign else to preview it in mineimator its slower than it really is.
think differently

I wish I can import my Techne models, and even Mo 'Creatures models to this app. I'd like to make a MUV-LUV-themed Minecraft War with them.

I have a very noobish question to ask here: how exactly would I go about creating a standard explosion effect? I don't particularly need the details on making the crater (should be possible with instantaneous movement keyframes), just how to make a burst of particle stuff.

Thank you very much for making such a wonderful animation program, Davve.

You have to stick a thumb drive up their nose, drag and drop the pictures onto it, and then load them through your ear.
