Ikes,
what ZIP program and version did you use to create this archive? I downloaded it but my version of 7ZIP doesn't know how to extract it


Uh, I just packed it in windows 7 by rightclicking the folders and "copy to zip"? No idea why you can't open it.
I've just also packed it as rar, maybe you can open that...

Thanks everybody for the compliments, I'm glad this opens up new posibilities.


Windows is hopeless at making ZIP files, I think it just put the shortcuts to the files in the zip (which explains why it was only 2k in size). The RAR works fine though.

Dude, have you ever tried to make something in a 3d package and then try to get it to match the dimensions/curves of a character? It ain't easy, and the characters move, and you have to put them into poses to see what's happening... This set just keeps them nailed in place in a nice, easy to see pose when creating new attachments.

Ah I see!
Can you link the FBX models with the set?

I will put the FBX version up on Onedrive. You know, with these models I can finally make Sinister put his hands down and use him for something. First task is to create a sitting position for the main characters, that one always bugged me.

Please! Sinister is really well designed the the floating hands just look so strange!

Edit: Any chance of a dodgy mod to create custom actions?

I will put this set into the store (free, of course) so you can use it for reference if you don't want to have to extract the figures yourself.

Ziggy, where did you get Sinister, Beefy, Blob and Rosie? And the Asian characters? They aren't in the RAR file....

You have to remember I just mean making Sinister's top not visible and replacing the top body with a static model (with hands lowered!) - custom actions are still not possible, even with these tools, due to the limited import options in Muvizu for FBX.

I just went through the list. I don't know how to get the skeleton to work for those (hero) characters within blender (due to my lack of knowledge as to how to recombine all the bits) so I just compiled them together as only meshes, and then joined their bits together as one model. I don't have the Asian character addon.

Anyway, let's continue this over here : http://www.muvizu.com/forum/topic5765-base-character-reference-models.aspx?p=f#post31099

So could you download a mesh, remove the head (presumably you'd need to keep the same number of vertices) and replace the one in the Muvizu folder to have a headless actor? You'd have to switch that mesh in and out to get the original back of course.

You could try but this sounds like the sort of thing that would cause a crash. I'd be interested to see how it goes though.

And that's it, that's what I always do with every video - I go from no lighting to complete lighting by starting with a shadow system that works the way you'd expect, rather than the random, directionless blobbyness of the default Environmental settings. Hope that helps someone

This is gold dust! Thanks Ziggy

It probably contravenes all sorts of usage rules too (maybe Muvizu Staff could comment on this?). I don't think I'll try it at the moment as I am in the middle of a potentially extended project

Mandy's head is separate from her body, so her head is a separate mesh. You could presumably import the head into something, edit it, and save it back out as a UPK file (I don't know for sure how you'd do that) but what about the skeleton? It's tied to the head mesh, and physically changing any of the source Muvizu files is not a good idea for any number of reason. I wouldn't advise trying it that way - better to just create her head as a standalone object.

I'm already envisioning a jar with Mandy's head in it.... Xs on her eyes....

I realised I was cross-posting (between my own threads ) . What I was wanting here was a headless body so a transparent bottle can have legs rather than a bodyless head

But I do want a sick patient too
