GeckoLib Mod

Creating a Model

To create a new GeckoLib Model, go to File -> New -> GeckoLib Animated Model

To choose your model type, go to File -> GeckoLib Model Settings and choose your object type.

Converting an Existing Model

If you have already created a bedrock or java model, you can convert it to the GeckoLib format by going to File -> Convert Project -> Select Geckolib Animated Model Unfortunately there is no good way to convert a .java file into the GeckoLib format, since .java models are not lossless and are very tricky to import. In the future, make sure to save your .bbmodel‘s

Rigging

The process of preparing a model for animation is known as “rigging”. You can think of it as the process of creating a skeleton for your model. Spending a little time rigging makes the animation process much easier.

Grouping

Models consist of cubes, and groups. Only groups can be animated, so make sure to place all of your cubes in groups.

Parenting and Pivots

The rig for a model is like a skeleton. Groups are the bones, pivots are the joints, and cubes are the flesh.

MasterianoX Tip!

These images are from the article Minecraft Modeling & Texturing Tips by MasterianoX. You can read it for more detail and lots more helpful modeling tips.

Unless your model has multiple object parts that can move independently (like if your entity was a school of fish), you probably want a single root group with many nested child groups. When each group moves, it also moves its children.

Pivot points can be set using the pivot tool and affect what point a group pivots from when it rotates.
