Output to MP4 ? Valero, I think it might have something to do with which version you're using - the 64 bit version only gives me 4 codecs, even with the k-lite codec packs installed (and one of the codecs is Uncompressed, which doesn't even count!). The 32 bit version gives you tons of codecs to choose from by comparison. This is why I use TGA sequences as my output, then convert them into whatever I need through Sony Vegas. You can also use Virtual Dub to do the same thing (I have seen), and VD is free... actually, that's not the best initials to have, Virtual Dub... Big Grin

Need rollerskates! Yeah, that's the whole 'sketchup/blender/ase/whydoesntthisf**kingthingwork' conversation. It's a long and rocky road...

Attaching skates to the feet isn't the problem (with Play+), it's getting something into an ASE or FBX format that Muvizu agrees with in the first place that's always the problem. So, the first question in the SBAW conversation begins - do you have sketchup 8? Big Grin

Moving character along with basket(2d)? To move both together, you need to have Play+ (the one you pay for) and then you would just attach the basket to one of the character's attachment points (assuming you already have a 3D model you intend to use). You could use a 2D picture instead, but it's not going to look great, surely?

If you don't have Play+, you would have to animate the movement of the basket in time to the character which, while possible, will look rubbish no matter how many times you try. Believe me, I know. Maybe consider the third option - rewrite and/or recut to avoid the problem in the first place. That usually works

Square textures for grocery store. You would be best using a Background > Ground Plane to load the picture onto, and then place that on top of a shelf looking thing

Alternately, you could use a Cube (in Create Objects > Abstract) and use your picture as the texture - it sort of depends on how it will physically have to sit in the set. Hope this helps.

"Lip-sync data could not be processed" I don't get the error, I just get no response from the second audio file I assign as dialogue. Or the third, and so on. Format doesn't affect it, and reloading the audio doesn't help either. If I assign the dialogue tracks (working or not) and then save and reload they usually work then, but not always. This only started after the last update, I've never had issues with the audio before.

"A Dragon called Drac" - My first muvizu movie !! Yeah, we all want dragons Still, as long as you know where the limits are before you start, you can still produce good things with Muvizu. Look forward to seeing what you come up with in future Alquimista - nice test!

Extracting textures from set files If you hold the mouse over the thumbnail then a bigger preview will appear, but it's still too small really. Having the file names (of the thumbnails appear when you mouse-over them) working would be good too, so you could track down textures on your machine...

how do I dock the camera to the character so that You cant dock the cameras to anything, sadly. There is a 'walk on the spot' option somewhere in the Actions list, you could try that instead.

Coming Soon... Love it already!

Anti-Aliasing is not working on new PC One other thought - under File > Options, do the resolution settings still match what you think they should be? It's just that Muvizu does tend to reset it's options if there's an update or anything.

Coming Soon... The lighting has changed (it now works properly at distance from the camera) but the backdrops haven't, as far as I know. Nice carriage btw, love the ads

Anti-Aliasing is not working on new PC Certainly looks like it, or it could just be resolution - what do you use as your output resolution in Muvizu itself?

Real animation - A world of pain! In about 1982 or 3, I learned that I could position pixels by putting in their coordinates (on my ZX Spectrum) to create an image - then wipe the page, and do it again, and you could do it fast enough to make animations. I tried to make an animation to match up with Shine On You Crazy Diamond by playing and rewinding a tape and trying to get the timing right... Yeah, I prefer Muvizu Big Grin I remember when the internet was in black & white y'know...

EVIL! Episode 7: Gathering It's well put together but you really should be doing the eye movements as well - just moving the head doesn't convey much. They all look kinda spaced out... something in the punch?

Specs- debating whether to get a new computer. The most important part of a computer (for Muvizu) is the videocard - yours is slower than slow. When deciding on new kit, I use a site called Passmark which gives you universal (and simple to read!) benchmarks for all hardware so that you can compare the performance of them before you buy. Here is what your current card scores compared to the cards you can get now : http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu.php?gpu=Radeon+HD+8450G&id=2595

Pretty much any video card you can buy for a desktop will crush your 8450 - I'd recommend something that scores in the 2000 or 3000 range at least. Load times are dependant on your CPU, and laptop processors are very underpowered (by necessity) so you'd want at least an i5 (or i7 if you can afford it). Hope that helps

March 2015 update bugs I use mp3s (to keep the size down), so maybe it only happens with them. I'll try WAVs and see how it goes, thanks.

Can't seem to assign new Dialog tracks to characters - got my 3 (much used) 'talkie' tracks loaded, none now work the characters mouth. However, on loading a set, the first character I assign a track to is fine, the next isn't. Loading up a new sample doesn't help. Only happened since the update - thought it was a one off at first, but it isn't.

Okay, thought at first it was the Reset All Tracks not working right, but I have discovered that ANY set loaded that has audio tracks saved within it will not work correctly - if you go to Prepare Audio > Edit, then you'll see that your sound files are blank. They still work, but the program crashes out when you record stuff in the Timeline (in my experience since the update). By removing the sound files, the sets become stable again and don't crash out (again, in my experience over the last few days). Can anyone else verify that this is the case, that the previously saved sound files are blank on the Edit page? (freshly loaded audio works fine and displays fine).

Frickin Huge videos Why not just use Any Video Converter (or any other free one) to convert the finished vid down to the size you want? Remembering of course that size squares with quality... Either way, the codecs within Muvizu are just to get the footage out, they don't give you much in the way of options (other than resolution).

ANYone know how to achieve a decent... Blackmagic Fusion is what you need to apply that effect to a movie file - it's not the most friendly looking program in the world, but it will do the job :


Obviously, download the free one The tutorials are a must on this one, to get your head around the Loader/Saver way of doing things, but it will do what you need.
