Hi, this is my first post, im a starter in Muvizu! My problem is the follow:

i had created a scene with two persons (cowboy and dog). When i went to the "Dog" character action, i selected the Hook kick effect (attack movement). But the effect only affect a part of "My Dog" (the top zone),

how could i affect all the person with this effect??

I put two image that represent my problem

image 1: before than REC botton (Hook kick effect preview):



image 2: on the REC mode (effect Hook kick is not complete):



can you understand me?
regards
Uz!

Uz,

I think I understand you in that you want both characters to do the hook kick at the same time.

This is not possible and you will need to record this action for each character and move it to the position you require on the timeline.

Each character has their own list of actions and their own timeline.

I hope this helps and I have understood you.

Hey Uz,
As ukBerty points out, you have to animate each character separately and adjust in the timeline. The whole animation process that we've created is done in passes. A really good tutorial to check out would be this one here http://www.muvizu.com/Video/17236/Tutorial-18-Directing-Character-animation

Also, give this one a whirl first - it kind of gives you how Muvizu works in a nutshell http://www.muvizu.com/Video/17213/Tutorial-02-Muvizu-in-a-nutshell

Hope this helps!

Sorry Uz - looks like we mis-understood.

I see what you mean and it looks like a bug. I have had a play but it all seems to work here so it must be something to do with the state of the character before you add this action.

I would have a play with the initial state of the dog as well any actions on the timeline before the hook kick. Do a "save as" and delete all the actions and set the dog to an initial state of fight just to see if it works.

You may have to submit this as a bug unless anyone has any other ideas ??

yes, it is very rare, I animated it before (any frames ago) but when the dog sits in front of the cowboy i can not get the fully effect. Instead, the cowboy applied to the movement without problems!
