  • this is the name of the template. if you wanted to use this with your own textures you would need to rename the "animation_frame" to your textures name.

WARNING: remember to make sure you leave the ".png" in the ".png.mcmeta" tag of your text file or it will not work.

"animation":

  • this must remain named animation, Minecraft reads this text value to know that the following lines are part of a animated texture.

"frames":

  • this must remain the same as it is used to declare that there are frames in this animation.

"index":

  • if we had 3 frames in our animation then index would declare what frame we are going to call/display.

"time":

  • this is the time in which we are going to display the indexed frame. you can also think of this as the playback speed of your animated texture.
