Hello fellow creatives, I'd like to start by saying how great it is that Muvizu is still here.
Now, I'd also like to start this thread for you to tell everybody how you are doing on your creative journey, be it with Muvizu, Iclone, Moviestorm, art, Music, 2D or 3D animation.
Everybody uses Muvizu for different reasons, so tell us what it is, and what you hope to achieve with it.

Go on, pour your heart out.

I personally have been using Muvizu since its Beta days, and if it wasn't for Muvizu I would not have made the creative stuff I've achieved in Moviemaking and Animation.
I've come to realize that as I get older, that there are not that many creative people with drive to make animation or Movies out there, and that we are a unique breed to do it successfully.
What I'm trying to get at is that we are a small pool of creative talent surrounded by an hungry viewing population of non creative people, so what I'm saying is, we need each other, period.

When I first used Muvizu, what I love most was its distinctly British Humour value. Everybody at the time were churning funny, cheeky videos out and everbody including the Muvizu team.
This feedback kept me going, it gave me strenth to continue.
We need this back.

My own personal creative journey is still going, but as you may experience it will falter at some point. This get's you down, this makes you sad, and this stops you making stuff.
Moviemaking is a passion for crazy people, honestly, why would anybody stay up till all hours, trying to finish something that only last for 5 mins!!!! But, when it's done, boy does it feel satisfying. And even better when you get comments from your fellow creatives.
So, I'm still here, trying to get movies done, 3D, 2D with my small amount of time I get.
I know, I must be nuts right? But I love it.

So, come on in out of the rain, lets all start again, forget about all the riffs and spats, or disagreements we've had in the past, lets move on, lifes to short.
Lets all support each other again, like in the beginning, let's.
get back to making small, less complex videos, Muvizu style, me included.
I'm guilty myself for taking too long to make something Lol 😂
So come on all the ol boys and girls out there, you know who you are 😊
Lets get back to how it was, fun fun fun and more Fun..

So, Hello, I'm Artpen, pleased to meet you again........

Hey everyone, glad to see site back up, I know its been a while since I posted this video, part 2 still lingers on my hard drive but with work keeping me really busy I just hadn't had time to work on it in a while, but there seems to be some free time coming my way when they get all of the new employees trained lol, then maybe I can do some more work on it!

That's good news! Let's hope the licencing system will be up and running soon. Buying a software company is one thing, figuring out how it's software is structured is very complex.

We are currently working on the licensing system and will report back when we have found a solution.Meshmellow is a Hong Kong registered company with development offices in Shanghai. We will endeavor to continue the development of Muvizu and hope you will support us along the way.

This is the best use of Muvizu I've seen - and you know there's a ton of competition - someone thinking to buy Digimania should be shown this video

How impressive to see what can be done when creating new sets and props and whatever the director wants is not an issue when one has got graphic skills as Clayster has.

The temple is simply awesome.

Whenever I make a Muvizu project I have to be content with the existing sets and things and most often the story must be changed to what is possible with the available stuff.
Don't get me wrong, however - making any project is always fun.

Therefore I very much appreciate all the great "stuff" made available by the graphics wizards in this forum - and from the Muvizu developers too. Thank you!

Looking forward to the next part of Indy's quest for the mystic Mr. Clayster ...

Thanks for those kind words ritsmer, I'm sure you will see the rest soon!

yeah, Clayster's sets and attachments always capture the perfect look for his videos. I'd like to see a "dream team" of Muvizu creators band together to bring all the best skills to one project. There are so many hats that need to be worn that it is hard for one person to do everything

Count me In!

That's true, Clay. Your videos are awesome in every way except sound quality. Whatever mic you are using has problems. There are some good USB mics that don't cost a lot... search for SNOWBALL USB ... I've seen them for as little as $39, but you can buy them at many online stores for under $100

The main things to keep in mind when recording sound:

1) minimize room reflection with blankets or wall treatment (that's why radio stations and recording studios have acoustic foam on the walls). Failure to do this will almost certainly introduce a reverb-like attribute that can't be removed. It sounds like the speaker is in a barrel

2) High background hiss can come from poor mic quality, but it can also come from recording at too low a volume, then boosting the volume later (which also amplifies the hiss). When recording dialog, you can judge the quality of your signal by the graphical image of the WAV. It should fill about 80% of the area it fits in, but it should never get so large that the top and bottom flatten out. That's called CLIPPING, and once it happens, the sound will be distorted and can't be fixed.

A good full-formed WAV recorded with a hiss-free mic should generate dialog free from background noise.


well pat the reverb-like is because I was trying to mimic the sound of being in a cave to give that tomb like sound, but my mic was in bad shape thanks to my dog, I think that's why you hear hissing, but I should have my new mic come in in a few days, so the next part will be better i hope, Ill try some of those tips pat thanks!

Yea sorry for the bad audio, when you have dogs and they like to chew things and I forget that they do, stupid me leaves wires laying around and he chews my good mice wires, i ordered a new mic from Amazon so part two will have better audio, and I will redo the recording for part two, I would of waited until the new mic came in, but my sister who played The spirit guard of Zu with the riddle was so cant wait to get it started so I took a chance, and its been a while since I made a video, so part two will have better Audio!

Thanks for the info, didn't knew about that 10 activation hard limit !

Yeah but let's be realistic for one second, the odds that someone invests in a product that clearly is not making money (if cash was flowing, digimania wouldn't be in that situation right now) are pretty scarce, no ? At least keeping the current business model which makes for such a strong value for money product.

To me, the optimistic assessment would be 50-50, the most realistic (yet gloomy) is a small 20 - 80
