You sure can chuckles! Simply go to edit the character and in the 'Body' tab you will now see a small tick box with the label of 'visible'. You can click this tick box on and off to show the character as visible/invisible in your final render.

Looking forward to seeing what you do with the new feature!

All the best,

-Mike.

Hi Mike. I know I can Edit the character, I used it extensively in my "Weirdsville E16", Muvizu, but There seems to be no way to DIRECT a character to be Visible or invisible, during the action. No way to appear. or disappear a character ?

you would use prepare character menu and then look for the visibility and then choose animated and then hit direct and direct after that and the info will be recorded

Hi Mike. You can not direct a character like you say, only PARTS of a character to change colours ! The whole character is not selectable.

If you have the latest version of Muvizu:Play, you should be able to select "Edit" on a character and then check or uncheck "Visible" under their "Body" tab.

Hi Lev
I know all that! But you can not DIRECT a character to appear or dissappear. EG He is walking along, then he suddenly dissappears. Whilst DIRECTING there is no box showing with the visible option.

Hi chuckles, although you cannot animate a character to be visible, then animate them to be invisible at the current time. It is something we are still ironing out before releasing it to the community. The current invisible tick box was initially only for objects, but we are porting it over to use on characters (not as straight forward as you think!). Hopefully in the near future you WILL be able to animate someone turn invisible!

Hope that helps,

-Mike.
