Unlimited licencing question https://who.is/whois-ip/ip-address/

Strange that this IP address leads to alibaba.com...

I believe the Chinese only bought the product to sell it as is. My conclusion is that they do not have the knowhow to upgrade, fix bugs or add new features. I think you don't have to expect any improvements from the Chinese.

update: the FBX output doesn't work in Muvizu. I'm guessing it's a newer variant of the FBX format than the 2012 version that works in Muvizu. Bummer.

Hi Pat,

That's strange, what version is the FBX exporter? The FBX 2014 version from Daz3D Studio does work with muvizu.

Video starts to render then stops halfway through Hi,
Is the start and end range properly set on the timeline?

Unable to download purchased Muvizu assets Hi,

I don't think they are downloads. I think these features are already in muvizu, but you only need to unlock it by activating it with your key.

Import object from another set Did you save it in your favourites? It should be there.

Do you have the Asian Characters or the South Asian? I think the dress you're talking about is from the South Asian pack.

Import object from another set You should also be able to copy the object from a set and paste it in a new one.

Horror zombies not showing Hi,

The horror zombie set are not characters, but textures, I believe. If you insert a basic character and edit it, you can go to the tab Decals and click the Custom textures slot to load it. I do not have it installed, so I don't know if they are in a category, but they should be there somewhere.

Work around for SketchUp models convert The way I get models from sketchup into muvizu is with 2 free programs, Sweet home 3D and Daz3D. First I download the model in Collada format from the 3D-warehouse. Sometimes there is a KMZ file, that will also work. It usually downloads as a zip file, you don't have to unzip it. It doesn't have to be furniture, can be any model.

- Sweet home 3D -

Open up Sweet home 3D and under Furniture, click Import furniture. This opens up the wizard.

Choose the zipfile you downloaded. It can handle a couple of file formats.

click continue >

You can adjust the orientation and click continue >

You can adjust the size and colors and if you want to add it to your catalog of models. Click continue and Finish.

Try to center the model on the 0 axis.

Select the model and under 3D view, click Export to OBJ format and on the popup choose export selection.

Not Export all, because then it exports a ground plane in it. Now you're done in Sweet home 3D.

- Daz3D -

Open Daz3D and go to file > Import… and select the OBJ you exported out of Sweet home 3D.

Set the scale to 50% and click Accept.

Select the model and under File, click export…

Choose FBX as file type. In the popup set Output Options to FBX 2014. Check Collect Textures to folder. Check Selected and Props and click Accept.

- Note that the objects are not very smooth, some models work beter than others -

Now go and import it in muvizu...

Good luck!

Need a video camera (prop). bigwally wrote:
I am not the handiest when it comes to props, but I usually do okay, until now. I need a video camera that can be placed on the shoulder of a potato-head character for a 2 second shot. Someone who better versed at Sketchup or other software. Anyone?

Hi Wally,

Do you mean something like this? I downloaded a camera from sketchup and imported it in muvizu. I could email you the files if you PM me your address.

ZUCHAT... a FB group for Muvizu PatMarrNC wrote:
Personally, I'd like to see a way for users/volunteers to keep this forum alive

I would gladly help with it, if necessary. If this site comes down, it sure would be nice if they backup the databases, so this treasure of knowledge would not vanish. It would be a great loss if that happens.

ZUCHAT... a FB group for Muvizu 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.

ZUCHAT... a FB group for Muvizu You'll have to do without me, cause I don't and never will have a facebook account.

Digimania has gone into administration It's very sad for the employees of digimania and muvizu. You guys made a program for $30,- that stood way above all the expensive other animation progs out there. I've searched for muvizu alternatives and there simply aren't any that can put together an animation that easy and fast!

Thank you very much for all the work you did, guys. May you find another job soon where you can use all your skills.

If this website go's down... I'm very proud to have been a part of this great community and I've been here almost daily. It's been very nice to have "known" you all.

I hope we will find another place to show our creations to eachother.

Good luck to all!!

Where to get Creative Commons Music for your video Thanks for the link Pat, Even for musicians it's nice when you're looking for some different moods, you could not make up yourself.

Building sets - Lining up walls, floors, ceilings? Hi theotherguy,

Maybe you could use the cube from my primitive shapes set. It supports UV maps with transparency.

Moving grouped objects? Hi,

You can move objects together like they are grouped, if you have the keyframe pack. You need to create a keyframe on the same frame for every object you like to move. Then multi select all the objects with the Ctrl key and move them together to a new position.
