okay if you can see them but not import for use in muvizu this is because of the formatting or "wrapper" used to package the avi (probably h264 this is most common format) muvizu will only handle standard encoding microsoft avi type 1 or 2 and uncompressed format (i am missing one.. can't remember which.) so this is a codec issue as muvizu has no fancy codecs to use inside their software.

.mov is for use in quicktime and was basically invented by apple to compete its not very universal because most of the software is developed for a pc workhorse.

Anyhow it seems you can in fact see avi files on your pc now? you just can't import avi files on your pc for use inside muvizu? if this is the problem now its the way the avi file is packaged and you need a converter to repackage the avi. Muvizu will not handle quicktime native format at all those are .mov.

I tried viewing through WMP but that didnt work either


The codec pack works for your system, not just one player - when you play something in any player, it asks windows to recognise the file type it's playing (there are various sub-types of AVI, WMV, MOV, etc) and windows says yes or no to it.

As for importing a video into Muvizu, I always use Divx AVIs - you should download a video converter if you don't have one already (this one's good, and free) :

Importing video seems to be a bit hit and miss, with people preferring different file types - I think if it works, it works, make a note and move on One thing I've noticed - always scale down your original video resolution - try 640 x 480 to start with, and with as short a clip as possible, or else everything in Muvizu grinds to a halt. Good luck Thumbs Up

Thanks Ziggy, I'll have another go with the video.
That link doesnt seem to work - should I be looking for Divx #AVIS?

I cant upload a screen shot here but the problem is the same regardless of the size of the clip. Even before I start to 'make the video' the preview screen is blank so I imagine that has some bearing on why I cant view a complete video on my pc?!

err not sure to be honest what is in the images are they white? or do they have your scene? i am thinking possibly you have more then one camera out and are creating the scene but one of the cameras is pointed at empty set (which is white by default) which would get a blank preview. I have done this made a quick test render to see what a scene looked like and had forgotten to flip to the camera actually viewing the scene in the cameras line in the timeline and this would give me a blank screen
