Dear zmann98,
I have a question for you. No doubt this was done in photoshop and on the lines along that, what dimensions do you use for the picture? Does the length need to be twice of that of the width? Good work on this post and i hope it goes well. Keep up the work and good work by that.

Well Actually. I dont have to worry about picture dimensions. After i click create new in photoshop i do the regular 590 in width and the height is adjusted as i need it to be (i start around 2500. I also set measurements in pixels) Then after im done i Go to this great site where you can upload the image with good quality, Here, then after its uploaded i copy the direct download link for full size pictures and it posts just how i made it. If you have any other questions just check out this great blog made by sabertooth[CZ] here, or just pm me your questions. Thanks -Zmann98

this isn't really animating, to be honest. Animating something takes a lot more than just this. This program is essentially just basic posing, and only very basic. I've started animating recently, and trust me, it's more than just downloading a program and moving a few body parts.

In the next perhaps teach the new animators, walking, lighting, and how to put a scence (minecraft map) into mine-imator, just a few ideas, my fellow animator, I used to use Blender, but now i use Mine-imator, I still use blender but not for minecraft related animations!
