Hey everybody,

My name is Patrick and I am 27 and live in The Netherlands, any Dutch people!??

I am new to animating to an extend that I havent made anything yet but I love the open source software available in the world. Have you seen Blender? Also very wow...

But this stuff is great and Muvizu is very exciting because it's very easy to get...

Let's have some fun!

Quick question: I want to know if there are more small objects, besides instruments, that a character can work with? How do I do that?
Must be possible right? I saw the superman clip in wich he is acutaly holding a phone. And I have noticed that there is this shooting motion a soldier can do so I would assume I can give a character a machine gun?

I'd love to know.

(As I'm watching what the moguls of muvizu have made the questions are building up (How the??, so excited!)

First of all, Welcome to Muvizu!

You can only hold the instruments at the moment, but some people import objects then put them next the the character so it looks like they're holding it.
You'll find the community (and staff) very friendly, but we're in the middle of some spam extermination at the moment.

I hope you enjoy making movies,
MDW13

PS: there are rumours that the Muvizu team may be bringing holding other objects in one or two years, but of course, that may not be true.

oh yeah the holding the phone i guess i did a better job then i thought i did. I used stop motion for that one. I made two phones one with the receiver detached. I then filmed two clips of the picking up the phone part and used I think the angry shake fist (i always forget which options I choose ) I then did some video editing of two frames to have it look as much as possible as he picked up the phone receiver and then i had him talk and then repeated the same business of swapping the phones out at the end only i replaced the phone without a reciever with the original phone. I do that a lot sometimes it looks more convincing then others depending on how I decide to solve the problem. Anyhow that is how i do it at present. I create a lot of objects myself using blender and import them into muvizu.

Hopefully that answers your question. Eventually one day maybe we will have a more sophisticated way of dealing with things like using a telephone, but until then I use old fashioned methods

anyhow if you see anything that puzzles you that are not obvious like "how to hold a phone" just post because I am not afraid to share my "secrets" I am sure others will share as well. I also do a lot of green screen as well sometimes that is more effective then other times as I am cheap and don't want to purchase a home copy of after affects so my ability to match lighting is not very good
