1.2 version is finally out. Lot of work for the fixes and the new features!

One of our main tasks for this version was providing a better and stable Library to animate your models,
fixing many weird bugs and imporving the Animations tab. This and many
other features have been possible thanks to our new great coder
Fir3will! He's a very fast and smart Java programmer and coding
with him is easy as eating a piece of cake ;)

This question may seem that I'm dumb or something, but is it possible to create mods with it? (For example, animating your MC character?)

Hi! I have to say, this program is AMAZING! I love it! But I got just a few questions, because I am new to this program...
  • When you are done with the model/project/mob, how can you bring it to MC?
  • How to animate...?
  • Does this work for blocks/items/plants maybe?

I really am stupid, but I'm not good at coding and everything, but I really want to learn!
Thank you so much!!
If there are any mistakes in this comment I am sorry, but I don't speak English very well.

When you are done with the model, you can bring it to MC in various ways: making it the new model for a vanilla mob/object through a resource pack, or making a mod and using the model you made for a mob or object in your mod.

There should be tutorials online for how to animate.

I am pretty (but not 100%) sure you can make the model anything, animal, plant, item...

Yesterday I managed to make it work for me, for some reason it was glitching ... reinstalled Java, so far it seems to worked. Probably a Win 10 issue...

But... what I wanted to ask, incl. you... community... is there a full guide on this application?
Like all the features explained, how to use them, hotkeys/keybinds, how to control it, and then deeper explanation/guide on the specific values, functions, when what to use and why or why not, etc.

Because the only real video guide with something close to that above I found on youtube ... is in Italian language..
Guess what... "pap-pap-pappara... me no spik italiano."

But despite that, I watched 2 of the 3 tutorials out there althought I did not understood a single word but did helped me at least in some degree to make my first model and animation... /whooot

So... if anyone knows how to work with this app, and knows the functions, values, reasons, etc. Make a guide and put it on YT :D prefferably in English language :D
I would do it myself, but the lack of knowledge about many values in the MCAnimator it would not be a great help to others.

When you get time I think you should add 6 directional arrow tools to move the blocks much more easily (1 pixel along with each increase of slide) and a rotating function circle display similar to it

Also a drag and drop onto a surface tool would be amazing aswell. (You drag the back of a box and the front moves to the side of another one when you drag it to it.

The Json export which you plan to add should be amazing for majing 3d resource packs..

Hello there! I'd love to use your program to make 3D models in .json file. Would you be able to do so, one can download this editor, and just use it without the ability to model json files?

Not yet. We are working on items and blocks models rendering, but MC 1.8 is not helping us at all. The new JSON format is terrible for animating models.

No one said it's compatible with 1.8. But it will in the upcoming version. Before complaining, be sure that you are talking about something we actually did wrong.

Care to explain why the hell your mod is registered for the 1.8 compatible mods list? Only the owner of the mod can set that on his PMC page. Which means you set it up knowing you couldn't yet provide the service= your problem.

"Game Version: Minecraft 1.8" on the second page of most downloaded mods for 1.8 right next to your mod.

Next time don't try and shift your mistakes on others .

You are right, we have probably chose the wrong version during the last update and we have now changed the version until the next update that will support 1.8. We apologize for the mistake, have a good day :)

Awesome Program! Been playing around with it though and I'm not sure how to use the Java files for Tile Entity animations (if possible). Or does this program only work for just entities (i.e. mobs and such). If it does work for Tile Entities though, how does one incorporate the model file produced by MC animator? Since it only defines animations, from what I've found.

Note: I properly fixed the package locations and imports, it's just the  model file that's giving me issues.

Thanks!

Hello Fenrir_Felix, sorry for the late reply, we don't check the comments often here.

The upcoming version will provide a way for exporting to TileEntity and to Items. Also it will be available for 1.8 and 1.7 versions. Please stay tuned for more news about it :)

Normal , the 1.8 version doesn't work (it doesn't have 1.8 support) so if you are doing it for a 1.8 mod. You can't :p.
