Ive noticed that when we ask about the possibility of certain features being included in the future versions of Muvizu, often we have the "its in the pipeline" phrase given to us which is always better than "no never in a million years". So for that we are very thankful
However it makes me think about what the plans for future versions really are and how "the pipeline" has been planned out for the next 12, 24, 36 months

Rather than asking about individual after individual features can we be told what to expect when and in what shape we will see muvizu in in the vision that the developers have for it.




if we know whats coming then we can make more informed suggestions for muvizu and be less of a pest to the moderators and developers by asking for things which will be happening anyway




cheers again !!

ps. looking forward to the moving cameras in the next version

keep up the good work!

Speaking personally (others will no doubt speak for themselves), if it's coming in the next release, I try to make that clear. Our release cycle is around 8 weeks long, and our next update will be around the end of August. Once an update is released, we sit down to decide what to work on for the next update. Unfortunately there are so many things "in the pipeline", and we're a small team, so we have to be quite selective.

So for me, "in the pipeline" usually means something that we've looked at and would like to focus on in a future release, but it might get knocked back in place of something we consider to be more important. I'm sorry we can't always be more specific.

Thanks for the prompt reply!
looks like i'll have to keep quizzing you all then!

will muvizu always be a very cartoony style of animation or will more realistic animations and characters be developed over time

will more customisation of the appearance of the characters facial features become available eg spacing, or reducing thesize of the eyes

will we be give the option to hold poses within animation or move limbs individually similar to the head movement




i'll stop now or i'll be here all day! lol




cheers!

There was a time when I would have agreed, but for awhile I followed the Stykz forum in which the developer published his 'timeline' for feature development and implementation. This rapidly went out of the window which caused a lot of frustration amongst some users. So, no - now I think it's best to wait to be told what WILL definitely be in the next update.


you have a very valid point. Tthe rate of reply to our queries and the effort that they are putting into giving us answers are second to none!
i saw a thread where some one was asking about a suitable graphics card and not only did he get an answer but they actually shopped around for him and found it cheap on amazon to boot!!

anyone who was unfortunate enough to experience lionheads forum for" the movies game" (like myself) will have nothing but praise for this mob!
hope they manage to continue this as muvizu grows!

cheers!

I find it refreshing that the team seem to be trying hard to listen to us and a plan for exactly when things are likely to be done past a few weeks away that would be anyway near accurate couldn't be done for all this.

Keep going the way you are and each couple of months it will be a big nice surprise to see what we get Toast
