I want to be able to make Items that have animations when used, so like a totem, with the totem of undying animation with the sprite and everything. I think this would be really cool and would really open up more possibilities for mods.

There are two problems with this:

(a) There isn't actually an "animation" system in Minecraft. You basically have to write your animation by hand if you want to do anything complex. Because of this, MCreator would have to essentially make their own custom animation software just to accomplish this. Now, they could just copy the code from Minecraft, yes, but you wouldn't be able to do anything else.

(b) This is a very niche situation, and, because of the problems mentioned above, it wouldn't really be worth it for the devs to invest their time into. Animation has always been a tricky thing in Minecraft and unfortunately MCreator won't be able to change that anytime soon.
