Hi there Minecraft! Since I first released my New World Texture Pack, people have been asking very frequently how I animated the paintings in it. Well, to ease me of typing out long drawn out tutorials for individuals, I'm going to make one last one, right now!

Tutorial:
First thing you must do is decide which painting you want to animate! After that step open up your painting program. (I use Paint.net). Copy the area of the painting and paste it on a blank canvas. Now if you wish to animate this painting you must make a string of pictures like so (Must be vertical!):
hKuYtpng To make creating frames easier, you can convert .GIF images into individual frame by frames. (Technically you can watch entire movies in Minecraft, it would just be a VERY huge file XD).
Okay, now that you have your frames done, you can apply these to Minecraft files. I recommend creating a folder titled "anim" in your Minecraft .jar file just to prevent bulk. After the folder is created, put your image into the folder. Rename the image something like "custom_kz_(#).png" to make this process much easier.
The next VERY important step is to create a .PROPERTIES file. It should be simple as notepad or some simple writing program. Title the file "custom_kz_(The same # from above).properties". In this file you are going to include the location of your frames to make Minecraft re-run its scripts.
The first step is to identify the key components of the location of the original painting.

Okay, so these are the things that go into the .PROPERTIES file you created. Now open up your file and match this format:

So now you have just made paintings come alive in Minecraft!!! Have fun! :D Now you can watch TV while playing Minecraft! Lazy bums... XP

Please Diamond if you think this helped! :D

This doesn't seem to make sense. Where do all the other painting frames go?

Are there any differences when putting this in a texture pack folder and not the JAR?

More specifically, in the .properties file. Also, does the .properties file go in the anim folder or no?
Any help will be appreciated :D

I believe the animations only work if they are put in the .Jar file, and not just the folder, but I have never tried just adding them to just the texture pack file! And yes, the .properties file goes into the anim folder to make it easier! Im sorry if this was confusing, I half don't know what I mean! XP

One more question, should I be using the default .jar or should I have certain mods installed. (For example: optifine, mc patcher, shaders, etc)

To make animations work you do need MCpatcher or Optifine so minecraft can read the scripts and your animation properly

Sorry for all the replies. I think my minecraft is messed up because I downloaded your new world texture pack to see what I was doing wrong, and the animated blocks in it were working for me but not the paintings.

Cool. I didn't even know paintings could be animated.

Any idea whether updating paitings can make performance issues?

I didn't notice any Fps drops with my multiple animations, but I assume the longer you make the animation, the more memory it uses, so a larger (huge) file could cause some problems.
