I am new to muvizu and as such I am a bit hesitant to inmerse in a 'beta' program that may grow to the point that later requires monetary investment that were not present at the development stage. I do not want to be stuck investing so much time and energy and then later have not choice but to go along with any future limitations that are none existing today.
What are the future plans of Muvizu after the 'beta' stage?

They will likely never charge in the future (unless you are on the cusp of making a lot of money with your Muvizu made movie). Also, you can download and archive each release and ensure that you will always have a free version. Ultimately you could look at it another way:

Most free animation products will not compare to Muvizu, and you might as well get started with one piece of software (whether it is Muvizu or something else). You might consider just making a movie. Don't talk yourself out of making movies and learning how to make them. Don't wait!

Also, you will always have to learn or relearn features in any piece of software. This is true of free or paid software. Whether you switch to a new program or have to learn newly added features to software you've been using. When you learn 3D movie making programs and also the principles of good filmmaking you will have skills that transcend individual programs. You can easily learn new apps and be on your way.

I would not be fearful of using a program because it has the term beta attached to it. In fact google has the same status (so I'm led to believe from people in the know)

I have hopes that this program advances with more features (being able to have more control over the character path / actions, etc). If it does increase in features, and a dollar value is assigned, I would have no problem paying it, to be honest.

This program is definitely a good way to learn the basics of computer animation. You also learn the tedious endeavors required, and appreciate what goes behind any project. In theory, any software program released is basically a "Beta" version. There will always updates / fixes needed.

As of now, this program, and not to sound like an 80's nerd, is "totally excellent". For a "beta", there are a ton of things you can do with this program, so I wouldn't really look at it as a BETA, but more a "work in progress" that keeps getting better.

Valero - as the others have said, I wouldn't worry. The skills you learn by just getting stuck and making some movies will be transferable to other applications.

They have always said that it will always be free, but even if there is a change of mind I would make hay while the sun shines. In fact some of our heads are starting to burn !

Go for it.

We only just started using Muvizu and have yet to come across anything that stops us from doing what we want to do. Even in its beta stage this program is awesome (not to sound like a fanboy) , and i can only assume the once released (complete) it will be even better and easier to use.
The updates have been easy to adapt to and like the rest have said, learning is part of the fun of using Muvizu. Go get em!! and bring some quality work

Hiya.

Just like to say that Muvizu is free for use at the moment and we have every intention of keeping it free to use.

Don't you worry about the money side of things. Just worry about making awesome videos for us to put in the community review shows every week!
