Disclaimer: this mod has nothing to do with Aperture Science from Portal games. See the article on what is Aperture actually is.

Aperture is a Minecraft mod which allows you to create advanced camera movement (for cinematics or machinimas) using camera editor GUI. It works with Forge for Minecraft 1.10.2, 1.11.2 and 1.12.2.

Features
Aperture mod provides a lot of features for flexible camera editing.
  • Loadable and saveable camera profiles. You don't need to worry about losing your camera setup. With Aperture's camera profiles, you can save your camera setup on the server (if the Aperture is installed on the server) or on the client (in config/aperture/cameras folder).
  • Duration is measured in ticks. A tick is basically an update in game's logic. Minecraft's logic loop running at 20 ticks per second. Why ticks? They're static, while frames depend on framerate, and can be easily converted into seconds (while not depending on real-time).
  • Flexible camera setup with multiple camera fixtures within a camera profile. Other camera mods usually gives you an ability to setup only one path at the time. Aperture allows you to have as much camera paths (and not only) as you need to within same camera profile. There are few types of camera fixtures in Aperture:
    • Idle fixture – holds camera in given position and angle.
    • Path fixture – animates the camera through a set of given points using one of the three interpolations: linear, cubic or hermite. Also supports keyframeable velocity control and per point durations.
    • Circular fixture – circulate around the center point and facing at it.
    • Keyframe fixture – allows you create a camera behavior based on specified keyframes (which can have different interpolations and easing).
    • Null fixture – a placeholder fixture, which mimics next fixture's first position or previous fixture's last position.


  • More camera flexibility with camera modifiers. Camera modifiers are modular blocks which post-process camera fixture's output. With these modifiers, you can add camera shake, apply math equation, make a GoPro-like behavior, look at some entity while traveling a path, and much more combined. See wiki for more information.
  • Provides a smooth camera as a Minema-friendly alternative of vanilla cinematic camera.
  • Compatible with Minema, if want to record smooth videos on your Potato PC, install Minema mod and record smooth videos!


Videos
This playlist is a tutorial series. It should teach you how to use Aperture mod from scratch. It bases of Aperture 1.3.4. Once you watch these videos and learn how to use it, feel free to watch the change log videos for more information about new features.



Meanwhile, this playlist contains a list of videos about Aperture's updates. These are so-called change log videos, which showcase new changes added to Aperture mod.



Install
Install Minecraft Forge, download the latest stable version of jar file for available Minecraft version. Also install following mods: McLib. Put it in minecraft's mods folder, and launch the game.

After that, Aperture mod should be installed and will appear in Minecraft's mods menu. If Aperture didn't appear in the mods menu, then something went wrong.

Aperture 1.3.6 : 02/23/2020 1:01:03 pmFeb 23rd

This tiny patch offers a couple of bugs and crashes fixes as well as some of my stupidity fixes.

Compatible with McLib 1.0.4. It doesn't mean that future versions of McLib would be incompatible, but older versions are most likely incompatible.
  • Fixed exception being thrown when no camera file was found (internal clean up)
  • Fixed flight and sync icons showing in F1 in camera editor (i.e. hide them)
  • Fixed unable to turn head up and down when in outside mode
  • Fixed crash with empty graph view (reported by SCraft Systems)
  • Fixed crash with unpopulated camera profile entry (reported by SCraft Systems)
  • Fixed camera profile not being loading due to outdated camera fixtures present

Most likely never. Forge devs and Mojang made it extremely difficult to update mods to 1.13+. I don't have that much time nowadays to devote to modding.

The disclaimer says it all, it's not related to Aperture Science. Aperture is basically a hole within the camera lens that allow pass the light to the camera sensors, so it makes sense to the mod's name :D
Thanks! :)

It works for me, if you're getting an error, it means you did something wrong. Could you post a crash log on pastebin.com?

it keeps on saying that it wants 1.12 - 12.12 so the mod seems like to be 1.12 - 1.12 even tough you say that it also should work on 1.10.X

It might be because you're downloading a build designed specifically for 1.12? There are multiple downloads on CurseForge. Download the build that says for 1.10.2.
