I have to sadly inform you that 1.20 and newer versions of Minecraft will be not supported anymore because development of Mine-imator is completed. The devs will not maintain, update the program anymore. I know that MI community made some aternatives to get 1.20 stuff to program. Like I know someone made Model and etc from 1.20 into MI with models. But that's only way to newer version blocks to MI. The rescourse Tap at forum or wait someone with modded version of MI but latter is highly well not expected. Or someone else is taking over development but that's all, mate. Sorry to give news in sad way

The theme of Minecraft Intro from any browse Minecraft Intro template in Mine Imator has bugs. Please fix it.

Delvopmemt of Mine imator has ended for a long time.

It means that Delvopers stopped working on it. It means no bug fixes and no new content. The next thing I see is only modded versions that fix those bugs

Found a severe bug in the new build.

I run on Ubuntu 23.04
I just tried out 2.0.1

The shaded editor-render renders some textures blurred, even up close.

Flat-color render and full render both seem to be normal.

What an AMAZING animation software, thank you for this amazing update and let it be the best final update we could have, ya'll had a great run with Mine-imator 2.0 it's sad to hear you stopped developing though.


PS. I'm working on an animated series using this software and hope to get the first episode out by VERY EARLY 2024, still making the map for it...


Thanks to David & Nimi for such a good software 👍

I got some issues:

1.when importing texture packs the human textures does not show up

2.paths have poor performance

3.when set the path object detail accidently under 0 mine imator crashes.

4.some ui gliches that causes crash.

5.assets take too long to load

6.I had some problems when importing sounds:

when click on sounds folder mine imator crashes or opens the folder, doesn't shows the sounds and then crashes

7.point lights when goes over 4 mine imator doesn't respond and ends up crashing

and I would love to mine imator have these features:


2.json files support

3.connected textures

4.optifine jem file support

5.godrays(light shafts)

6.better reflections(sun reflection on water or blocks)NO MORE BLUE

  1. Development of new features has ended and only critical bugfixes will be done going forward. Future updates are not guaranteed and will be infrequent.
  2. Most AMD cards and integrated graphics cards are prone to have poor performance, artifacts, and crashes relating to high-quality rendering. If you encounter any of these issues, we recommend staying with Mine-imator 1.2.9 for your projects.

Dear Mineimator Team,

I wanted to extend my heartfelt thanks to all of you for creating Mineimator, a software that has been an invaluable tool in my video creation journey. Your hard work and dedication in developing such a user-friendly and powerful animation platform have made a significant difference in the creative community.

While I understand that updates might not be as frequent now, I am immensely grateful for the efforts and contributions you've made in the past. Mineimator has been instrumental in bringing my ideas to life, and its impact on my work is truly immeasurable.

Thank you for all that you've done. Your legacy in enabling creators like me to pursue our passions through animation will always be appreciated.

Warm regards,
