Hi, any thoughts on producing a character "wink"?
thanks, Dave

Within Muvizu, you can't. But if you have a good video editor, here's a kludge. Film your character twice: a) with normal eyes blinking and b) with blinking turned off. You cannot have the character's head moving too much. Then load them into your editor and create a split-screen, one half where the don't blink and the other where they do blink, putting the dividing line right between the eyes.

Here's an example:



It's not a perfect solution, but it does work to some degree.

That's a brilliant solution, another tip would be to have breathing turned off.

Oh, yes. I really wish you could turn breathing off.

I should probably add that the control of this new "not breathing" feature will be a checkbox in the character's edit dialog. It won't be something that you can turn on and off within a movie. I'm assuming (hoping) this is still all fine and dandy?



That was said by a Muvizu staff member on another topic.

I believe you can, but cannot edit it's status during recording.

The not breathing bit doesn't work. The characters will stop breathing in preview mode, when you're using the Timeline, but as soon as you make the movie they go back to huffing again. Any matte shots aren't really feasible until this gets fixed.

Ah, sorry, wasn't near my Muvizu machine so I couldn't check.

Perhaps they need to make their sticky note board public.

lol this is one of these things that they fix and then it breaks 3 weeks later that and eye movement although the eye movement seems to have stayed fixed for a long time now at one point you couldn't use all the eye features size/movement as basically they would get "stuck" I got my clark kents eyes stuck once and just went with it and left em that way.. it was a very intense shot as he stared to the side for the entire time ..

Big Wally et al, thanks all. That wink you made is quite nice. Impressive. I'll give it a go, but…
Any chance of a "wink" button in some iteration down the line??

Yes, I've noticed too that the "not breathing" doesn't quite not breathe.
Again thanks.
