Hi, My name is Christian Clavet. I live in Montreal(Canada). I'm a computer tech and a level designer. I'm working on my pastime on open source projects like IrrRpgBuilder (a game builder application made in C++/Irrlicht).

I learned Level Design at Ubisoft Campus in Montreal in 2009 (Unfortunately Ubisoft closed it 2-3 years after), worked a little at Gameloft on Dungeon Hunter 1 an IPhone game.

Been a hobbyist programmer in C++ since 2007 when I started programming in C++ using Irrlicht. Done small things until I joined on the IRR RPG Builder project, a simple and small open source game creator still in development.

I learned to model, and animate a little in 3D Studio Max at school, but I'm still cannot do a good skinning on a character, I've added recently 3D Coat 4.7 to my tool set. Used Mixamo auto-rigger to help me skin my characters. My friends thinks I'm good at modeling, but I lack skills mostly when come time to rig/skin characters, and my animation skills are ok, but basic. So Muzivu is really a nice tool to make something EASY for me! No rigging/skinning, and can still make something out of the characters since I can import stuff on them like accessories...

I buyed the pro-version of Iclone 6.5, and after buying it, found out that for importing stuff I had to pay for everything, I mean EVERYTHING. Even if it look nice, I will not use it. I would need to buy their "exchange" program that is sold separately at 500$, this is really abusive.

Just found out Muvizu in the weekend, tested the demo(was a little worried that it would be like IClone), then after seeing what I could do with it and that It can import without additionnal fee (the full version). I got it. Just activated it this morning, and I plan to use it for my grandchildren's (1 and 2 years old now) and create some little cartoons and see If I can make something to make them laugh.

Welcome to Muvizu!
I see you've already had a play and you've got the hang of it. If you have any trouble, check to see if there's a solution on the Wiki: http://www.muvizu.com/Wiki or here on the Forum.
Everyone's friendly here, so if you have a problem that's not answered on the Wiki then just ask!

There are some additional paid expansions such as keyframed movement, customs sets, and extra characters that you can buy here: http://www.muvizu.com/Store but most stuff is included in the initial purchase.

Have fun!

welcome to the forum and to the truly enjoyable world of animating with Muvizu! I had pretty much the same experience of starting out with software that includes very little content, requiring many additional purchases to make it truly useful. Muvizu comes with a lot more functionality, and the active user base has provided a huge selection of free content

And it's pretty tough to beat the price tag of Muvizu... no sticker shock here! Speaking as somebody who has bought and tried most of the animation packages available, I'd have to say that muvizu is by far the "best bang for the buck"
