    Greetings animators! Five years ago on this day I unveiled the first Beta version of Mine-imator to the public, hyped up by the popularity of @Frossa's semi-viral TF2 "Meet the Team" remakes in Minecraft. Despite the program being crude and severely lacking in features and graphical effects, pumped fans jumped head first into it and started making content, and the creation of these forums shortly followed to allow everyone to share their work. I would have never imagined that five years later, people of all ages would still be using Mine-imator to make awesome animations and art. In fact, judging from the number of daily downloads, Mine-imator is more popular than ever, and has started to be used professionally to make graphic novels and to teach animation in tech camps in the US, which of course wouldn't be possible without your continued support! Now I must admit that, while functional, the program has failed to keep up with the never ending stream of new Minecraft content, and there are still serious issues halting the creative process for some users, occasionally leading to projects getting corrupted and hours of work being forever lost, which sucks. Hard. Therefore, I have decided to take some time off from other projects to deal with these problems before passing over the development torch to someone else. However, since I now also have a full-time job alongside personal projects, progress will take longer than usual, so bear with me! I'm now announcing that after a 1½ year long wait, a new Mine-imator update is in the works that will be publicly released within the next month or so, first as a pre-release before fully replacing the now outdated version. I can say right now that it will not contain any crazy new rendering effects or animation features, but rather focus on stability and keeping the program up-to-date with all previous and future Minecraft versions, which are the two current main issues with the program. "But, wait...", I hear you think (yes, mind reading is a neat little perk of being a developer), "...future Minecraft versions? How will that work?". Just read on... To start off, the update will bring some fundamental changes behind the scenes regarding how character models, blocks, items and schematics are loaded into the program. Without going in too far into the technical details, a big flaw of the current Mine-imator is that everything is stored inside the program executable (hard-coded), which makes it a significant effort trying to keep it up-to-date with all the new mobs and blocks being added into Minecraft at an ever increasing pace. However, in the next update, all the assets will be located in an external archive, along with a specification file that defines what it contains and how it's used. Along with this, the file handling will be given a make-over, to address some of the crashes and corrupted files people have been having. The program's engine will also utilize a newer DirectX version that could increase the rendering performance for some users. Among other goodies, this is what you can expect in the update: More stable project/rig loading Blocks and characters being loaded from external JSON files (that may be customized if desired) System for auto-downloading new Minecraft models and textures Some minor graphics-related features New settings for character models and block variations I have been collaborating with @Nimi, the current undefeated champion of Mine-imator modding, and he has decided to discontinue his "Community Edition" mod in favor of me letting him take over the development of future Mine-imator versions. As an extra bonus, Nimi has been working on a long-requested feature to go along with this update. Exciting, right!? More will be revealed soon... So basically, a pre-release of a shiny new Mine-imator update will be available for download on the forums within the coming month. I'd appreciate if you could try it out with your new and old projects (just be sure to save some backups if you value them!) so I can iron out the biggest bugs before making it official! Until then, keep calm and animate on!

    The Good Ol' Days [Wallpaper]

    So I haven't touched Mine-Imator in a long time... Anyways, I was thinking last night about all the good times I've had with my friends that I've known for years and that made me want to make a wallpaper with my boys. I figured I'd make a topic for the heck of it. Feel free to jot down your thoughts about it or whatever, I just felt like sharing this as the last wallpaper I'll probably be making with Mine-imator. That's about it, thanks for viewing! Edited with Adobe Photoshop CC 2015 From left to right: @vash0110 @Cryotivity @SKIBBZ @Fosni @Upgraded Moon @The Tan James Edit: Others that I didn't add cuz I didn't have their rig(s) or feel like it - @ÜberKiller @JemFire101 @Varen @RedcapCreations @Ironwave Studios Un-edited (4k)

    So… what is this, exactly? Well, this is my last Mine-Imator animation. Ever. If any of you haven’t heard before, I’m completely quitting. This animation has been on the shelf for a very long time, and I decided once and for all that it just won’t ever be finished. Having said that, I want to make it known just how much this was planned to be. This was pretty much my Mine-imator "magnum opus"; my longest, best animation yet. It was planned to be 10 minutes long, and this version lacks the polish I would have liked. But even now, I can’t be bothered to deal with recording voice lines or editing in sound effects. I hope that the rigging and animation quality makes it interesting to watch in itself. This took a very, very long time. Some of the plans go back to July 2016, and even more was planned than just this video. An entire series, but none of that came to fruition. I've also included the script I wrote for this animation, just in case any of you wanted to see a little bit of behind the scenes. Additionally, captions are on the video if you want to know what the voice acting was originally supposed to be. It's a shame I can't give you any more than this. I really didn't write any more than I animated so I don't even have an extended script to give you. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Please turn on Closed Captions. Credits @KindZax - Ground clutter, house design, and furniture rigging @Heavenira - His skin, help with ideas; was going to voice-act Me - Animation, rigging, scenery, basically everything else.

    F.N.A.F map of sister location

    I spent some time on this map, digging the scoop may not be very accurate, forgive me. The map is hidden in addition to the building all the hidden, you can all open. (Because when I use fps too low) Thanks to Mr.Dark's model. @Mr. Darl Download here Precautions: The proportion of the building and the characters may not be right. Inside the character's head and character model can be replaced for their own skin. Inside the safe channel is my own to add, it is connected to all the corridors and auditorium, just to not let the security of people to drill duct, of course, you can put this channel to seal up. Inside the button can be pressed, and did not lock up. In the Funtime auditorium I added a Funtime to F-r-e-d-d-y's stage, but I did not know if there was a stage in the original. Control module inside the mask is actually there, but that time did not do it.

    Hello! My name is VZmatthews (my screen name, actually) and I honestly just created an account some minutes ago to express how delighted I am of Mine- Imator! =) I literally just downloaded Mine-Imator this morning, and I have already created a 20 second animation that I think is already halfway decent. I'm just really happy of how easy it is to make an animation in this program. I think as far as 3D animation programs go, this is probably one of the easiest, but at the same time, it is also capable of producing some very professional-like animations. I'm still obviously learning how to use Mine-Imator better, but so far, its been a fun time. I was really impressed by how quick it was to import worlds/schematics from Minecraft into Mine-Imator itself. I thought it was gonna be quite a long process, but in almost no time at all, I managed to get the house I built on my demo of Minecraft into the program. Just like how impressed I am of how user-friendly the program is, I am also impressed by how it is actually only quite a small program (the archive was around 15 MB) and how even my 2GB RAM laptop could handle it. The minimum recommended RAM for Mine-Imator is 4 GB, But unlike other heavy programs I use, Mine-Imator actually felt very quick and optimized for my laptop. In general, I'm just really happy of how my first experience of Mine-Imator went. Really excited to continue using this program. Thanks to the developers, and have a nice day everyone. =) (I wanted to put this out quickly, so I'm sorry if this was the wrong place to post this. Peace!)
