Extra Controls

These are miscellaneous controls that aren’t as powerful as the other features in the program, but prove useful for machinimists.


Levitate Mario

This allows you to make Mario float. Useful for animations that clip in the ground, or want to get a bottom angle of an animation.


Some animations are restricted in the ground because of how the game treats them. METAL Composer’s Animation Override bypasses some of this.

  • Slider from 0 to 5

    0 is regular height, 5 is max height.


    This may make some animations be extremely bouncy. This behavior is because of how the game treats animations.


  • Apply HUD button and checkboxes

    This button adjusts the visibility the in-game HUD, allowing for recording without the counters for stars, lives or POWER meter.


    Does not affect the black bars.
