I just downloaded the free version of Muvizu to see if it can help me make a bunch of animations to describe the use cases of some products. It looks perfect so far - I just need to figure out if I can get characters to hold a cell phone or ipad and act like they are texting. Also get them to type on a laptop. I don't mind making some custom animations or 3d assets, I have an extensive 3d animation background, I just want to know if its possible. I would imagine this is a common action people want to animate, but didn't find any examples. I understand I will need the play+ version to have the character hold anything.

Any help much appreciated!

There are video tutorials and plenty of info here in the forums on importing your own models. If you are comfortable with 3D modelling you should have no trouble, the tricky bit will be working out which moves look convincing as you are stuck with those built in.

I could have sworn that there used to be a typing option, but I might be mistaken.

Update: Just had a look at this (pretty rubbish) video of mine form a few years ago, and the start definitely has the action:

the typing animation can be found in the boardroom bit.
