How do I create an accessory for a character? Hello Eduardo,

You cannot currently create custom accessories for characters, but you are able to make custom skins:

The team are planning to open up as much of Muvizu as possible, but there is currently no timeline for custom accessories.

Take care,

Oh my Muvizu unworkable it'l have to go.... Normally a BSOD is related to drivers, but if uninstalling Muvizu clears it up, then it will probably be something else.

If I had to put money on it I would say it's a conflict with your installed codecs - but that that's just my best guess - if I was you I would uninstall all of your current codec packs and then install the K-Lite full codec pack which can be found here:
(Make sure you download the full pack)

If that doesn't work then a manual install of the latest versions of directX 9 and .Net 3.5 would be my next recommendation.

Best of luck!

Muvizu on a 2002 AGP PC Hi everyone,

I have just finished setting up a small compatibility test - I was able to get Muvizu to run on a PC that I originally bought in 2002 - with 1GB of DDR1 Ram and and AMD 3000+ Processor - less powerful than most mobiles released in the last 1-2 years.

The reason it works is that I bought a ATI 3650 AGP card - which has all of the necessary pixel shader support etc. - it cost me £40 and I think it's a worthwhile stopgap for those users who have older machines.

Muvizu is usable - the framerate isn't great but I am sure that I will be able to tweak the performance a little to get some more oomph out of my current PC's granddad.

I will post performance figures at some point in the next few days - I have been working crazy hours over the last few weeks so haven't been able to get on the forums or use Muvizu as much as I want to.

Take it easy,

Not really. As long as it has "floats in the air" It can be still be useable. The ability to turn collision off would be a feature I would love to have on Muvizu. Even already made a thread on that matter.

There is a difference between having no collision and being able to intersect with objects - Collision volumes are required for every single object so that they do not fall through the floor/walls/ceiling and cause a crash.

Character Clothing and Textures Hi D5,

The clothing is just a "reskin" so all the stuff that you make will end up skin tight, unfortunately. I know that the devs have custom character attachments (which would allow you to upload new shapes of clothes) on their to-do list but I couldn't give you a timescale.

Take care,

Cheap(ish) laptop Hi all,

For those of us who are UK-based Dell have reduce the Alienware MX11 to £415.99

Apparently it is capable of hitting 45-60 fps at max settings in Unreal 3 so it should have no trouble running Muvizu.

The three downsides are; it's pretty garish, the screen is small (11.6") and it has no DVD drive.

Take it easy,

where do I import 3d assets to ? Hi Hexslayer,

It can be unzipped to anywhere on your PC - as long as you can remember the file location when you import it into Muvizu.

Take care,

Imported object collision Hi Dreeko,

It sounds like there is a problem with the .ASE model - try opening it up with a text editor and doing a search for UCX_ - delete every section that starts with UCX_ and then try adding in the small collision area back in.

I found this laptop at newegg and have been thinking about buying one. Seems like a fairly powerful laptop for the price.

Hi Mysto - that machine seems to be a better spec than the one I was using - so it should be ok.

Cheap(ish) laptop Oops, that's a typo - it's actually the 560 that I have ordered - I didn't see the point in spending more than £150 on a graphics card as once you go higher than that you are into the area of diminishing returns.

This is one of the most thinly veiled 'Guys look at my new computer!' posts I've seen in a long time

It does look good though... :I

If I was going to go "Hey guys look at my new pc" I would wait until I bought one of my own rather than showing off my work laptop.

Coincidentally, I have just bought a new PC and, for the techy users, here are the specs:

Intel i5 2500k Quad Core 3.3 GHz (I am hoping to overclock it to 4.5 GHz)
Geforce 460 GTX 1GB
8GB 1600 MHz DDR3 Ram
MSI P67A-GD3 Motherboard (Compatible with both SLI and Crossfire)
Low-noise Modular Cooler Master PSU
OCZ Sata-3 60GB Agility 3 SSD
WD Caviar Black Sata-3 1TB HDD
Asus Xonar 5.1 Surround sound PCI Card
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Cooler
LG Super-Multi Blu-Ray/DVD Drive
2 Low noise fans
Screwless case

Thats more than you need to run Muvizu, but it never hurts to test for the high-end users (that's how I have been justifying the purchase to myself but it hasn't really worked).

I am looking forward to getting the bits and putting it all together - now that PC cases don't try to eat your hands like they did in the '90s.

Static Mode If it wasn't for "cheat and sidestep it" we wouldn't have such iconic cinema moments as the point-of-view shots in Jaws (the shark kept breaking so Spielberg improvised). The most bizarre "cheat and sidestep" one that I have ever heard of was during filming of Casablanca - they couldn't fit a full-size aircraft in the soundstage for the final scene so they built a smaller model, pumped in dry ice to have obscure the view and, to top it off, used midgets for the groundcrew.

Imported object collision Hi Dreeko - it can't have zero collision (as it would fall through the world - making very bad things happen) but if you give it a very small collision volume (such as the four wheels and seats) it should work.

I know that you have already created collision volumes, but for those of you who haven't I will link to my video at the bottom of this post.

If you have already done this then there may be a problem with the .ASE file (the common one is forgetting to put the UCX_ in before the collision volume).

Take it easy,

More universal 3d model support? Hi Wizaerd,

Last I heard the devs were looking at adding .fbx and collada support - I don't know if that's still planned though.

Codecs Hi again Tony,

If a codec isn't compatible it won't show up in Muvizu - so the 32-bit codecs won't show up in the 64-bit version of Muvizu and the 64-bit codecs won't show up in the 32-bit version of Muvizu.

Have you tried installing the 32-bit version of the XVid codec as well as the 64-bit version?

Take care,

Codecs Hi Uptonsdad,

There are generally 32 and 64-bit versions of each codec available for download.

For example:

Here is the 32-bit K-Lite codec pack:

And here is the 64-bit K-Lite codec pack:

Both codec packs provide a large variety of codecs, but the 32-bit pack can only be used with the 32-bit version of Muvizu and the 64-bit pack can only be used with the 64-bit version of Muvizu - so if you intend on having both versions on your machine you would need to download both codec packs.

Take care,

import texture Hi again Nicoknight,

Right-click on your .ASE file and use "Open With"
Select Wordpad or Notepad
Find the entries that are labelled "C:\UT3\toto.bmp"
Replace "C:\UT3\toto.bmp" with the location of your texture files, for example if you saved a texture in C:\Textures and called it Texture1.bmp you would change it to: C:\Textures\Texture1.bmp

Save it, then try using it again.

Take care,
2011/7/13 18:42:23
up loader problem Hi Hexslayer,

What codec are you using? I don't know if it will make a difference but you might want to try using a different one like XVid.
