Hello to everyone. Hi JS36, look forward to seeing your brains. Mmm, braiiiins...

Free version of Fusion editor/effects generator Damn this thing is powerful. Unfortunately, just like blender, the UI is horrible, but you can show the nodes as pictures (which helps a lot), there are some controls that look intuitive, and have colour coding and icons (so its not just a text minefield like blender), and you don't need to go into all the 3d stuff if you don't need it. Try looking at these tutorials first :


The UI in Fusion 7 is much the same as 6, so the tutorials work the same. The real-time previews can be adjusted for quality, so its scalable if your PC is a little on the slow side. The weird text labels at the top are just shortcuts, most of the features of the program seem to be accessible on the right click menu and depend on context/window.

(btw, don't mean to be beating up on blender here, its just that the UI is similar and immediately reminded me of the horror, the horror... )

Let me guess, this won't run on my Sinclair ZX-81, will it?

I think it would run...but slowly. Simple effects, like colour correction, shouldn't be a problem, but as soon as you started to use the fancy plugins and generators then its probably going to take a while. Also, the version for download has a simpler default interface than what he was using (I guess, like most things, you configure the UI to suit your own level of skill with the program). Also, he was using nodes to brighten, darken, and then brighten again - what?! I think he was overdoing it

Free version of Fusion editor/effects generator Wow. Mind boggled. And he says in the video that's a simple example?!! I will be watching tutorials for a while on this one, I think, but thanks for the link Oziabla Thumbs Up

Installing on MAC Since Microsoft stopped doing security updates for it, nobody should be using XP anymore, so Win7 all the way. Use the 64 bit version if you have more than 4gb of memory.

Free version of Fusion editor/effects generator It's like After Effects, but complicated Some research and tutorials would need to be watched, but it does look promising.

Modification Request Yes, the 'pitch' is just a group of 4 ground planes with a picture of a quarter of a pitch on each - you would just replace the images with American Football ones. Hope you've got the paid for version of Muvizu though, or the players won't be able to hold the ball...

General Video Editing Advice Needed Windows MM is very, very primative, and not to be used unless you are forced to There are free versions of Hitfilm Express and Lightworks you could use instead.

Neutral mood? Good to see you back Danimal. Being able to wipe the smiles off their faces has been one of my favourite changes since the beta version as well. Tried out the 1080 resolution yet? It's very nice

Star trek. the halloween incident. That was, to quote John Cooper Clarke, 'deliciously deranged', and so funny - Shatner has so many 'talents' LOL! The blood trails were excellent, and the Spock injury is just horrific... in a good way Big Grin Excellent modelling on Leatherface too, that works almost too well... EEK!

Muvizu channel on TMUNDERGROUND Further, there is this message on their homepage :

Massive influx of spam, eh? Imagine that... Big Grin

Death By Jelly - a comic book horror It wasn't so much that I didn't have anything positive to say, it's just that it's hard to judge with a program I've never used before how much is you and how much is the program, if you see what I mean. It's a nice swaying animation on the snake, for example, but was that you or a preset? How much of the lab set was already included, and how much was your input? Since I can't know what your limitations were (like I would if it were a Muvizu animation), I can only go by how it works as a story, and how it looks as an animation. And you did ask for feedback

Also, I would argue that the only difference between a professional and an amateur is whether anyone would pay for your work, and has nothing to do with the quality of the work - I mean, you would never start out to make something 'amateurish', you try to make it the best you can, but the software you use can be very uncooperative, as we all know... Don't put yourself down, is all I'm saying, we're all amateurs here! Big Grin

And the windmill? It's just the sort of thing I notice, can't help myself. It's not important for the story, no, but... it's wrong, and personally I'd have to fix it. Seriously, I'd just have to.

Death By Jelly - a comic book horror Not entirely convinced that works - awful lot of flapping, and unnecessary camera movement, and the facial gurning is overdone, I would say. I know it's comic book, but... it's just not the kind of comic I would read, I guess. There's a lot of scope for expansion in iclone it looks like, but if you have to pay for everything, even to import free stuff, then maybe you should return to us, Toon

Also, don't windmills spin with the thick edge leading first?

P.S. Not trying to be overly critical here, just honest.

Stop the spam! Well, it seems that the forum is now a No Go area at the weekends. See you all on Monday...

I give myself defeated. Floors and carpets? My go-to place for textures is always www.cgtextures.com - free to join, and you can download up to 15mb of textures every day. They are all high quality. Hope you see this message before it gets swamped with more spam...

Yes, it is supposed to be that dark. I know Hollywood would have us believe night is lit, but it aint :P

How to hold a pose? No, you can't freeze them. When the Breathing option worked you could turn off breathing and just matte in a static hand frame, but without it you can't fake much. Bluetooth headsets, perhaps?

Multi-select in timeline The timing would be different so you'd have to adjust all the blocks to match, and there's no way to group select things on the timeline, so I think you'll have to do this the long way, sorry to say.

Robot Child Music Clip There's a lot going on, for sure, but I didn't realise that was supposed to be a human - why no eyes? Or clothes? Odd choice, is all I'm saying. Difficult to empathise with something with no eyes. Otherwise, it's quite engaging

Stop the spam! MrDrWho13 wrote:
I'd say he looks like a normal user, his message translates to: "Hello My Name municipality I live in Tel Aviv" according to google (looks like quite a dodgy translation).

I think spammer - I think he didn't put his dummy name and municipality into the spam program, so we see the default.
