Digimania has gone into administration that was awesome Rod.. as your videos always are! But I hope that wasn't your last video in Muvizu... the software will continue to work, and a new forum has already been created in case this one vanishes.

In reality, the user's experience isn't changed a whole lot by these current events. Of course, you are the only one who can set your path in life, I hope you remain with us, as we value your friendship.

New forum will be here:
The site address is:

Thanks so much clayster. These are wonderful as usual. Its going to be such a loss if this community drifts away

The irony of this situation is that the people MOST affected are Digimania's employees. For users, there isn't a lot that changes. The most significant change for us will be if this forum and its resources vanish... but there are already people working to transfer the wiki and other files to a new forum. Once that happens, I expect that most of the active users will end up on the new forum, and everything will continue as before, except there will be no new users asking newbie questions.

It could turn into a core group of enthusiasts who really bond over the next couple of years. We might be at the beginning of a golden era of Muvizu use, who knows?

The new domain name will be :

Hi Rocque,

If I can I'll keep in contact. I rather see another solution for the forum, maybe it's an idea like Clay said, to create our own forum, far away from the weasels of facebook.

there are already people looking into that. I think the FB group is mainly to keep people collected and informed until something more usable materializes.

Personally, I'd like to see a way for users/volunteers to keep this forum alive

Forgive me for labouring the point but i was about to buy two character packs 5.99 each.A trembling finger on the pay to digimania....
when i got the fear!!!
Am i right in thinking that if i did go ahead and purchase, that would alter my product code and i'd have to click the upgrade button in Muvizu and enter the new code....but it might come back with an error code and i would lose Muvizu for ever and ever.....gulp!!...whimper!!
Have joined zuchat now.

there have been times in the past when I had run out of activations, so when I bought a new pack, the activation failed. As I recall, Muvizu still worked, but the pack didn't until Jamie increased my number of allowed activations.

I guess it all depends on how willing you are to risk the price of a character pack. If you are already out of activations, there's nobody on the Muvizu side to help you out. But chances are good that you still have activations left, in which case you should get the same results as Ritsmer.

I wish there was a way for us to see how many activations we have left... that would be very helpful right now...

I have been busy buying the things I did not have already and downloading all the free things too.

Buying, downloading and installing i.e. the Chinese history pack yesterday went well - no problems.

that's good to know! A lot of others have expressed an interest in buying things but until now nobody knew if it would work! Thanks for letting us know it works!

ZUCHAT... a FB group for Muvizu Anybody who wants to migrate from this forum to ZUCHAT (The facebook group for Muvizu) should probably make it easy on the group's admin by including your Muvizu forum name or some information to let him know you use Muvizu. We've had several spammers request membership, and without some information to let him know you're from this forum, it will take longer to get approved.

It is a private group, so what you post there won't be seen by your other FB friends.

ZUCHAT is located here:

Digimania has gone into administration now that we know the program itself will continue to run as long as it stays on the same computer, most of us will have years of access to it, even if nothing changes with its ownership.

One thing that probably WILL change, (and pretty soon) is this forum. Now would be a good time to download all the sets. There no guarantee that any of them will make the transition to Zuchat

good seeing you again Tony! I will always remember your winning entries in my contests! I like your sense of humor... you are a good man and I am happy to have met you as a result of using Muvizu. Your sons are fortunate to have such a loving and hard working father! Best of luck to you in whatever future endeavors you choose to pursue!

A facebookgroup where we can post our clips, sets, idea's,.. . Maybe a good idea. So we can stay in touch.

There is already a FB page dedicated to Muvizu... ZUCHAT

Unfortunately, FB doesn't offer a way to trade sets. I think a yahoo group would be a good idea, since they have an area for file storage

I also hope that if the plug is pulled out, the program will continue to work.

I hesitate to make any claims because so much is still not known... but a number of people have tested to see what would happen if the server goes down, and we feel pretty sure that Muvizu will continue to work as long as you run it on the computer where it was originally licensed.

The problem is that if/when your computer fails, you won't be able to reinstall on another computer. So if your computer is fairly new, you probably have a long time left to use Muvizu. Hopefully in that period of time, new options may arise. Put my name on the list of people who hopes that the administrators allow it to go open source, or that a buyer emerges.

If it's really the end, is there another software that is about the same as muvizu. For the same price, not a couple of hundred.
If not, we stay at Muvizu of course.

as long as the program still works and it meets your needs.. why change at all?

AMD RYZEN 7 1800X what surprised me about the test was the low CPU and GPU usage numbers. Neither the GPU nor the CPU got a workout while rendering your project. What bottleneck keeps either or both of them from throwing power at a problem until it's solved or the computer runs out of resources?

Digimania has gone into administration if anybody from Digimania is monitoring the forum... officially or unofficially.... it might be good to offer some concrete information now before rumour and sensational exaggeration run amok (too late!)

AMD RYZEN 7 1800X create a test project and render it so you know how long it takes... then send it to me and I'll render it at your same settings and tell you how long it took. You can message me the dropbox link.

A New Video from Toschek Hi Thorsten! I liked your use of cartoonized live footage, and the way you made it interact with the Muvizu characters. (such as holding hands with the Muvizu chick)

I also liked the way you framed your shots... you got a lot of interesting perspectives out of that one set!

And I'm assuming that's an original song... I liked it.

Cant do much with groups, WHY? bigwally wrote:
"If you absolutely MUST make moves when lots of meticulously positioned items are close together, move it via keyframing."

Pat, you are talking about moving objects that are not in groups. Or can you move groups using keyframing? I've tried, but it doesn't work.

maybe I interpreted the question incorrectly.. but I took it to be about the collision disruption caused by trying to move a single element that is close to other elements. I've never experienced the phenomena of grouped items exploding once they're grouped and locked.

Your understanding about whether groups can be moved with keyframing is the same as mine: they can't
17/04/2017 00:38:42
Cant do much with groups, WHY? the collision that's built into objects might be the problem here. Usually after you get everything positioned, if you group it and lock the group, you're fairly safe. However, trying to resize anything or move something that is close to other things will frequently result in something that resembles an explosion.

If you absolutely MUST make moves when lots of meticulously positioned items are close together, move it via keyframing. Collision is disabled during keyframed moves.

Problem with transparent AVI Ammostro,

first of all.. GREAT LOOKING HORSE! The solid color version of the horse walking looks great! I'm very impressed, and kind of upset that you beat me by making a quadruped first!

I'm interested to hear that your problem starts when you use a different texture. I have had this same problem, and like you , I tried everything to no avail. I don't know why one project works while another identical project fails. Eventually one of us will figure out what variable we're missing and then we'll be able to crank these things out without any problems... but for now I fear there is still an unknown variable.

The good news is that your solid color version works... and it looks awesome too!

I'm happy to have a newcomer to the forum who likes to explore and try new ideas. Please don't give up trying! Whoever eventually solves this problem should report back to the group so we all know the answer.

By the way, I've noticed that even when the AVI doesn't line up, the individual images can be applied as textures, and they DO line up. So the problem lies with the AVI, not with the images from which it is made.
You could swap the images via keyframing, but that's a lot of work
