Blockbuster is a Minecraft mod which lets you create Minecraft machinimas in singleplayer using NPC body actors. This mod works with Forge for Minecraft 1.10.2, 1.11.2 and 1.12.
Blockbuster mod depends upon Metamorph. Every new change log will specify the version of Metamorph supported. Blockbuster is also provides optional integration for Aperture mod.
Recording is based and rewritten from scratch on recording code from Mocap mod by EchebKeso.
Blockbuster mod provides you with lots of features to make cool machinimas:
- Actors and player recording the most important feature, as you won’t be able to create a machinimas without it. With Blockbuster mod you can record yourself doing things and then playback it using an actor. Recording code has some limitations on which actions it can record. See Blockbuster Wiki for more information about limitations.
- Director blocks one actor is good, a crowd of them is even better. Blockbuster mod provides you with a mechanism called director block which manages playback of registered actors. It allows you to record actors. It has also outlets for redstone contraptions, making it easy attaching some custom commands or redstone logic on start or the end of the scene playback.
- Aperture support camera is how you present your machinima. Blockbuster mod has built-in Aperture integration. When Aperture is loaded, Blockbuster mod provides you with some features such as: ability to attach camera profiles to playback button, and previewing director block playback while editing cameras in the camera editor.
- Custom models recording only player-like entities limits the originality of your machinimas. Blockbuster mod let’s you create custom models using McME model editor or in-game integrated model editor. Unleash your creativity with custom models!
- Mobs support thanks to Metamorph’s public API, Blockbuster is capable of using any morphs which Metamorph provides to be used by Blockbuster actors.
- Minema compatability thanks to frame-based player recording and cameras, you can convert your in-game machinimas to videos with a press of a button.
Install Minecraft Forge, download the latest stable version of jar file for available minecraft version. Also install following mods: Metamorph. Put it in minecraft’s mods folder, and launch the game.
After that, Blockbuster mod should be installed and will appear in Minecraft’s mods menu. If Blockbuster didn’t appear in the mods menu, then something went wrong.
Feature videos for 1.4. This playlist shows how to use the mod features. Almost every update comes with a change log video which show out new features.
There’s also a video that shows how to create a simple machinima using Blockbuster mod. This video shows basics of director block, how to attach actors to director block, and how to setup cameras:
This playlist consists out of videos that I’ve created a bunch of machinimas during Blockbuster mod testings and just when I felt like. Earlier of those videos are my lab experiments.
