Hey Guys. Recently, for about 3 months now, I've gotten into the interest of creating animations. Considering that I love Minecraft, I decided to soon make animations on the game. So, I made a Minecraft Rig for a program, Blender (A free program). All those who would like a start creating Minecraft Animations, here is a Rig that I created just for you :). You are all free to use it in ANYTHING you would like, seeing the fact that there are better ones out there.
====================
Download Link: http://www.mediafire.com/?7age19n1k5utmdy . Enjoy!
====================
If any of you would like a tutorial on how to use this rig, please say so in the comments :D.
====================
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS REQUIRES BLENDER TO BE INSTALLED!!!
====================
Features:
- A Minecraft Body (Skinned)
- Changeable Skins
- Facial Features: Eyes, Mouth, Teeth, Eyebrows, etc.
- Armatures/ Bones (To give it that Bend)
- Changeable Eye, Eyebrow and Teeth Color.
- Shapekeys (Makes it easier to move certain things such as: Eyebrows, Teeth, etc.)
More To Come! (With enough support :D)
====================
If they are ANY Questions/Problems/Bugs concerning this Rig, PLEASE say so in the comment :).
====================
|~Thanks For Reading~|

Additional Notes

This is for people interested in creating Minecraft Animations. Its is ENTIRELY free, but DO NOT CLAIM IT AS YOUR OWN CREATION. I hope you understand this took lots of training, reading and learning to create this. There should be a better one in the future (Just requires support!).

Whenever you open the Rig, it no longer comes with a pink skin. Finally comes with a Steve skin. All thanks to an AWESOME Youtuber, Joebro097!

HUGE APOLOGY TO ALL

I am no longer a user of PMC and I no longer play minecraft itself. Sorry for not replying to all your comments and I feel somewhat guilty and bad for it. Just today I logged back on to see how things are going and a tear nearly came to my eye to see how far this blender post got to.... I remember seeing "100 views" and now it's far gone that. I didnt realize how far this got. How huge it got.

So my sincerest apologies for not attending to anyone and not acknowledging them. I will not delete this post even if I dont use PMC anymore. Please enjoy.

Thanks a lot to everyone who supported this. You guys didn't only put a smile on a blender rig but you also put a smile on my face too. Peace and live it up!

It's a .rar file, does that have anything to do with Blender or is it just the standard Blender file type? 
• •
Edit Reply Delete
The .rar file is just a compressed file. If you uncompress it there will be a folder called 'Rig by Ruffles (A.k.a. ShmowZow)'. Open that and there should be a file called Rig by Ruffles.blend. Blender uses .blend files.

Hello my names Anthony I recently used your rig to render out some frames and noticed an odd bug. it seams that left leg and arm, instead of mirroring the right (as they do in minecraft) they simply duplicate them. Now where this causes an problem is if you have a skin that has twin sheathes, the left legs sheath will be on the inner side of his leg while the right will be on the out side where it belongs. I was not certain if this was a bug or something but I felt I should bring it to your attention.

Hey! I wanted to answer your question to "How do I change the skin" The ANSWER To this question is go to Image "Steve Skin.png" click the cross next to it and then when it has gone click "OPEN" and open your skin! HOPE THIS HELPED! :)

Well there is a way to do it but it concerns some other thing that begins with "Latice". It's a long process to make it. But for my profile pic I did use a different rig. It was created from a guy called "Random" or "Fark Regal" and I tried to find his youtube video on his rig download but I realized his channel was deleted :/. Pretty sure there is some other rigs out there with that exact same feature.
Edit Reply Delete
Right when I'm getting used to this one. Of course.

Well, thanks anyway :)
