Those videos you see where they have creepers dancing and stuff like that likely use either Blender, Maya or 3D Studio Max.

Of the three, Blender is the only one that's free and doesn't cost thousands of dollars. There are also free Minecraft models you can download.

If you're asking about the TNT parody video specifically, they used Blender.

They do have a steep learning curve however.

I have a feeling though that not too many people will meet the criteria and be able to provide the proof necessary for it per the Autodesk requirements.

Are these programs compatible with a Mac OS X Lion?

Yes, sort of, Blender is, Maya is, but 3DS max is not. The videos like "revenge" and "fallen kingdom" are made using Maya. But I think all of kwr426's videos are made in blender.
