I'm an absolute beginner and have a question:
I want to create an intro with Misuzu exactly like the Welcome Video (Welcome to misuzu) on this website. (office scene in the background (movie) , animated figure in the foreground). So a video of me as a background or something like that.

The rough draft of my video is 800x600 and 30 fps, AVI uncompressed. Are there a tutorial? thanks for any help.......

Sofie,

You have two ways of doing this :-

  • Create a backdrop behind your character and import an .avi of your video into it. The downside of this is that Muvizu is very picky about the format of the video and last time I tried this I gave up due to the lack of video quality retained on the backdrop.
  • My preferred way would be to shoot your character on a green background and then use a chroma-key function of a video editor to swap out the green for your video. If you have a video editor then this will give you far more control and avoid a lot of frustration.

Good luck

Someone should make a tutorial for this as it is a common question.

Maybe I'll give it a go for once....

I have the solution. for windows 7: i install the older version windows movie maker 6.0 / then i download "ShaderTFX64beta.exe" and install this programm (transitions for movie maker). i made a avi movie from muvizu with a green backside and flor and a objekt. save as test.avi / I open the test video and a normal avi movie in "movie maker". now I open the folder "imported media/transitions" and select the chroma filter i needed. it works 100%. sorry my english....

yes if you know how to do any greenscreen and about chromakey use that it saves you a bazzillion headaches. (your screen doesnt have to be green it can be another colour if you want to use green in your character the other common colour is blue)
