Frequently Asked Questions
What software do you use for your animations?
We all animate using Blender, but we edit our videos using Sony Vegas Pro. Visual Effects are sometimes produced using Adobe After Effects and we use Audacity to record our voices.
How can I have my skin in your animations?
You can have your skin featured by becoming a Emerald donor or higher on our Patreon page. You can view the Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/BlackPlasmaStudios
Can you make a Minecraft animation tutorial?
Yes! We have a Minecraft animation tutorial on our channel which we've recently updated! You can check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLpgMPL6TD5pglYuDp0V7G2JyvIxZoPt4p
How was Black Plasma Studios formed?
David created the channel in 2008 to upload Halo montages before he moved onto creating Halo machinima. This involved using the Halo game engine to tell cinematic stories like Rise of the Spartans. In 2015, he recruited other members to the channel to boost productivity and switched to Minecraft animation.
What happened to Halo machinima?
We wanted to create content that wasn’t restricted to the features of a video game where we had to rely on what the developers added to the game. After feeling dissatisfied with the newer Halo titles, we decided to drop the medium and move onto a more creative platform.
I subscribed for large-scale storytelling, not Minecraft shorts, what happened?
Songs of War is an original epic fantasy series over two hours in length! Check it out:
