3 Things You Should Know Before Animating Minecraft Videos

So, here are three tips you should know before you start animating. 

#1: If you want to make an object disappear, NEVER delete it. In my last Minecraft video, when the objects exploded, I deleted them thinking it would only delete in that frame. I was wrong, and it deleted it off of every frame. It would be very hard to add the blocks back, re-size, and position each one of them. There are other ways of making blocks disappear WITHOUT deleting them. This is actually why I couldn't continue the video... 

#2: Videos look a lot better if you move the camera a lot, but make sure it doesn't move to fast. I'm working on another video, but when the camera moves it moves a little to fast. Still gotta find a way to slow it down...  

#3: I have to admit it, but I did not make all those blocks, and not even the character. That is, I did make the wooden planks and wood blocks in the last video, but everything else like the character and the creeper I did not make. I just animated them.
