It would be great to have xyz axis controls so you can move things easily and precisely, this is one of the things that makes Muvizu hard for me, especially initially.

That's why they brought out the key-framing. The direction controls are just a bit fiddly to use for precise movements. Unfortunately, none of the versions of Muvizu compatible with the key-framing pack are 100% stable so many users are using v1.5 that isn't compatible.
However, you can use the arrow keys and WASD to move things when directing if the mouse is too awkward.

If you're just talking about moving objects around while setting up the scene rather than recording, then you might want to try altering your mouse speed in Windows.

Yeah, I have mouse modifiers built into my mouse, it doesn't really help. I have chronic pain so it is extra hard, but I just compare the options for moving stuff in Blender and I really wish we had top/front/etc view controls and axis controls, both are really really helpful. Muvizu can exist without them, but it would be so much improved with them. I don't know the restrictions because it is essentially a game engine, but anyhow, I may as well ask.

I usually situate objects by looking down from above for accurate placement. I also move my characters to the exact spot I want by having an above viewpoint looking straight down.

A hotkey like other 3d apps for the different views would help alot.
