NEW IN THE MUVIZU STORE..... Thank you for replying, I have mastered collision using Blender Wabby, thanks to info supplied by Muvizu community members but I wasn't aware you could use more than one collision box to achieve something like a man sitting in an airborne aeroplane until I looked at your Free aeroplane set. When attempting to do something similar previously I made a long invisible column and perched a pilot on that, Using this new info I suspect will be a much better solution.

NEW IN THE MUVIZU STORE..... Thanks Wabby. What sort of collision object did you make to enable the pilot to sit in the plane? Is it like a seat size block?

NEW IN THE MUVIZU STORE..... I watched a film biog about Robert Crumb recently, a legendary underground comic artist. It gave me the idea to create some stuff to enrich and perhaps add a bit of depth to our urban and rural scenes.The pylon and electric poles should be able to connect if needed and there are two variations of the telegraph pole one with not so many wires. Hope the community can use them.......Should be in the store soon....................FREE.
Stick them in your favourites for ease of use.

Editing costumes in house muvizu control. Very much appreciate your replies gentlemen but neither worked for me ...when i navigate to the temp directory i cant find the file..which flummoxes me.
also did what Ziggy recommended but when i click the edit button in Muvizu it still defaults to the rubbish windows art prog.
Just nuts! that yesterday when i clicked edit in Muvizu it did give me the option to open the file with whatever prog i wanted and i chose paintshop then edited the map nice and smooth work flow.I know i didn't dream this.
Never mind sob! i'll just have to stick to the old method of saving it in the rubbish windows art prog then opening up in photoshop and laboriously taking out the bits i want to be transparent.

Editing costumes in house muvizu control. I create a boy and load a costume t shirt with an emblem on from the stock costumes and click edit, it defaults to the windows art package but when i save the alterations the .png transparency is lost. I was thinking it would be cool if i could choose what package to use, say photoshop so i wouldn't lose the .png transparency..... then all of sudden when i clicked the edit button in Muvizu it did just that i.e. gave me an option of what prog i wanted to use..Brilliant! but the next time i tried it it defaulted back to the windows basic editor and i haven't been able to get that to happen again.
Anyone know how i can get control over this or whats going on?

Competition? Some will take it very seriously and enter to win, some will do it for fun, some will use it to gain skills......all seems good.
A title or two or three...to freely interpret will help people to find an inroad.

Wheels animation trick Yes thanks for the submissionCool,The properties of the 'Handlers' vehicle and other objects are most interesting.I haven't seen anything with such detail re material properties.Including normal maps, transparency and emission controls etc.Were all the texturing intricacies applied in Blender?

2 middle buttons for moving sideways and verticall I recently bought a laptop which doesn't have two independent buttons below the touch pad area, ie, you cant press the left and right buttons simultaneously, only one at a time.I just assumed the laptop would have such functionality..really stupid of me.You can plug in a mouse to overcome this but I bought a laptop to use on my lap not to be perched at a desk area.
My work around is to use a prog called mouse emulator.
I use it successfully alongside the less than functional touch pad and button area of my new(bobbins) laptop.


http://rhdesigns.browseto.org/mouseemulator.html


The program recognizes the following keys: (NumLock must be ON!)
  • Keypad 1 - Left mouse button
  • Keypad 2 - Right mouse button
  • Keypad 3 - Middle mouse button
  • Keypad 4, 5, 6, 8 - Moves the mouse left, down, right and/or up respectively.
  • Keypad 7 - Mousewheel up (Scroll)
  • Keypad 9 - Mousewheel down (Scroll)
  • Keypad / - Toggle Left mouse button (Useful for RSI users)
  • Keypad * - Toggle Right mouse button (Useful for RSI users)
  • Keypad - - Toggle Middle mouse button (Useful for RSI users)
  • You can exit Mouse Emulator by right clicking on the mouse icon in the taskbar.
