      Info for snapshot video creators

      Here are two gifs which can be used to compare the two versions of the nether portal exit animation:

      Note that the "Entering the Nether" message being absent in modern versions is a separate bug and is not yet fixed (MC-12789). The absence of inner faces in nether portal blocks is also a completely separate issue (MC-262512).

      The bug

      When you reach the other side of a nether portal the animation plays forever until you step out of it, even in creative. The animation is completely unnecessary here.
      This bug first appeared in 1.4 snapshot 12w34a - versions 12w32a and earlier are completely unaffected (but many are affected by MC-217613).

      I'd recommend fixing this and MC-217613 at the same time. A table explaining the expected behaviour can be found here: https://minecraft.fandom.com/wiki/Java_Edition_1.3.1/List_of_broken_features#Nether_portal_exit_animation

      Refer to Ismael Rosillo's code analysis below for how these issues can be fixed (and why MC-217613 cannot be considered a duplicate of this issue).

      How to reproduce

      1. Build a nether portal
      2. Enter it
      3. Stay in the exit portal
      4. The animation will start playing when it shouldn't
